Five Moments More “Difficult” For LeBron Than His Two-Week Absence

LeBron James

LeBron James is a “game-time decision” tonight when his Cavs take on the Suns, but his two-week absence from the court — at eight games, the longest of his career — could continue for at least another game. James told Northeast Ohio Media Group’s Joe Vardon today that his prolonged stretch on the sidelines was “the most difficult thing I’ve been through.” While it’s totally grandiose of us to cry foul, since no one is a better judge of LeBron than himself, here are five things we think were more difficult for LeBron than his current eight-game stretch watching his team from the sidelines.

Joel Embiid Trolls LeBron James On Twitter After Sixers Beat Cavs

Joel Embiid

The Philadelphia 76ers beat the short-handed Cleveland Cavaliers last night for their first home win since April 14. Is that confirmation that LeBron James should have heeded Joel Embiid’s summer advice and joined him in the City of Brotherly Love? The rookie seems to think so.

In a new post for The Players’ Tribune, the Washington Wizards forward and Boston Celtics legend says no player is harder to guard than Carmelo Anthony. Read More »
