When asked if the Kyrie Irving-led Celtics were a "different" threat than last season, James retorted, "I think they were a threat past year". The superstar forward holds a player option that could make him an unrestricted free agent at season's end, and the suitors are expected to make a hard push for his services.
"I'm always concerned about other teams getting better and better", James said after Wednesday's loss.
In mid-June, shortly before [David] Griffin left, team and league sources confirm, the Cavs explored a three-way deal with Phoenix and IN that would have shipped [Kyrie] Irving and [Channing] Frye to the Suns and brought Eric Bledsoe and Paul George to Cleveland.
Irving, a four-time All-Star, could have taken some of the scoring load off Leonard and could have provided the Spurs' offense with another threat with his three-point shooting and ability to penetrate the lane. "The [Thomas] injury affected them a lot".
James, who did not play in the fourth quarter, turned in 19 points on 8-15 shooting, seven rebounds, six assists, one block, and one steal in 32 minutes.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have three Eastern Conference championships and one National Basketball Association title to show for their last three seasons.
There haven't been any reports to support Irving's belief that James' camp tried to orchestrate a deal.
While Boston is reaping the benefits of the Irvingtrade, Cleveland has yet to do the same.
James may never acknowledge the rivalry he now has with Irving, or could decide to tell all. "We'll be fine though".
