Basketball: NBA star LeBron James reveals why he could retire early

LeBron James Takes the Lead in Latest All Star Returns

Then again, it hasn't been all highs this season for superstar forward LeBron James and the Cavaliers, especially lately. "I just like playing ball the right way, getting guys involved and winning the game also". "Obviously, they're a really good team, but we know the real trophies are handed out in June".

On Thursday, DeRozan had a modest 13 points (5-of-13 FG) in just 29 minutes - he didn't have to play much due to the lopsided score - to go with eight assists. We came here and talked about it, and that's what happens at times.

However, just because the Cavaliers shook off the cobwebs past year and coasted their way to an Eastern Conference title doesn't mean it's going to be as easy this time around.

LONDON - Kyrie Irving had 20 points, seven assists and six rebounds and Boston overcame a 22-point deficit to beat Philadelphia in the eighth National Basketball Association game played in England. There was never a point in the game where the young players looked overwhelmed, instead it was the exact opposite.

There was Toronto's fast 10-4 run. In particular, starters J.R. Smith and Isaiah Thomas were ineffective. Oladipo added 19 points and Lance Stephenson added 16 points and 11 rebounds off the bench.

The story (other than how bad Cleveland played) was the Toronto bench, led by Fred VanVleet and Pascal Siakam, who both dominated. The Raptors, this is a scary Raptors team.

The Pacers led 76-74 through three quarters and IN opened the second half on an 11-0 run, stopped by a James 3-pointer with 8:43 left. I kind of look at retiring, for me, as like getting engaged.

The second half was more of the same - the Raptors ruling every statistical category. Things appear to be coming to a crescendo at the moment and, in short, the team was a complete mess in two consecutive games, losing to the Wolves by 28 points and the Raptors by a staggering 34-point margin. I just want to win.

Casey called on his secondary players to step up in the absence of a large chuck of their offence with Lowry and Ibaka out and his charge was met.

However, James is a family man, and he has said that that will influence his decision.

In the end, the Raptors shot 50 percent and out-rebounded the Cavs by an astounding 63-35.

DeRozan is a rarity in this era as a high-volume perimeter scorer who doesn't take a lot of three-pointers.

For all of the justifiable concerns about the Cavs, they are still 26-15, third in the East, with an overall +45 point differential.

"I've already went further than I thought I would go", James said. We're still a work in progress. While talking about the possibility of retirement, James quipped that he couldn't do so just yet, because "I've got too many sneakers to sell".
