LeBron James has been in the news for several weeks because of cryptic tweets, odd moves and other questionable comments. According to the latest NBA rumors, the Cleveland Cavaliers are reportedly sick and tired of his recent comments about forming another “Super Team.”
As mentioned in a previous report, James said that he is hoping to play with several of his superstar friends before retiring. These sparked several NBA rumors that he will be leaving Cleveland again sometime in the future.
“I really hope that, before our career is over, we can all play together. At least one, maybe one or two seasons, me, Melo, D-Wade, CP. We can get a year in. I would actually take a pay cut to do that,” James told Bleacher Report.
These comments were enough for the Cavaliers front office to take a stand and talk to their superstar. According to Joe Vardon of cleveland.com, Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue and general manager David Griffin had two separate conversations with LeBron James.
Coach Lue revealed he spoke with the four-time MVP after the blowout loss in Miami last Saturday. He questioned James for not warming up at halftime with the team down by 21 and was talking with Wade instead.
“I just told him we can’t have that, being down like we were and him being the leader. Just me being a competitor, I didn’t like it. We had a long talk about it. It was good. He understood, he apologized, and he’s been great,” Lue said.
On the other hand, Griffin told James to cut off the antics and just play basketball. The two-time NBA champion also proceeded to kill the NBA rumors about him joining forces with Melo, Wade and CP3.
“I don’t know how realistic it could be. It would definitely be cool if it happened, but we don’t know how realistic it could be to have us four,” James told cleveland.com.
