LeBron James thinks his relationship with the Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert has been repaired since his return to the team two years ago. Earlier, James left the franchise on bad terms.
“I think it’s been very good. At the end of the day, we have the same goal, and that is to bring a championship to Cleveland. And that’s all that matters. I think he’s the owner of the team. I’m just one of the players and one of the 15 guys. So I’m one of the lower guys on the totem pole, so I just do my job. I’m just here to work.” The Cavs’ All-Star revealed when he was asked about the present status of his relationship with Dan Gilbert at a press conference on Saturday. Gilbert owned the franchise during James’ acrimonious departure from Cleveland and during his return.
The experts and the media found James’ comments pretty outrageous, according to the USA Today. As the words came from a man who is a global basketball icon. One needs to remember, it’s LeBron James who acted as a coach while sitting out for a game.

While he was on the verge of leaving, LBJ was once more asked whether he’s really low on the Cavs‘ totem pole?
“Yeah, just tall,” he answered.
LBJ Shoulders responsibility for Game 2 debacle
LeBron James has shouldered the responsibility for the Cavs‘ blowout loss to the Golden State Warriors in the Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday at Oracle Arena.
“I got myself in a lot of trouble tonight personally. Turned the ball over way too much,” James said after the Warriors took a 2-0 lead in finals.
James feels he needs to put up a more solid show in the next games to be a playmaker for himself as well for his teammates.
