The trio of Kyrie Irving, LeBron James and Kevin Love are practically always on the floor for Cleveland. In fact, they’re each averaging roughly 38 minutes per contest. Sure, coach Blatt is doing this to find a rhythm and groove during the early part of the season, but LeBron James feels they are playing too many minutes.
Being the target that he is, I’m sure the following quote will go over well for LeBron:
“That has to come down,” James said Tuesday after practice at Cleveland Clinic Courts. “For me I don’t want to do that all year. Obviously right now it’s difficult because we’re trying to find a groove and we’re trying to find a rhythm and we’re trying to find something that you can’t really … you don’t want to shortcut it. But at the same time, you’ve got to be smart about it.
“I don’t mind giving some of my minutes up just to help the team and help my minutes go down. I think it’s for the best.”
