Cavaliers' Tyronn Lue: Not planning to reduce LeBron James' workload

Share

According to Joe Vardon of Cleveland, it has begun to wear thin on both head coach Tyronn Lue and LeBron James. To put James' workload in the same frame as players that came before is useful to a point, but it misses that the National Basketball Association game is different beast than it was during Jordan's final years in the National Basketball Association. "If you're one of the greats, sometimes you've got to play", said Lue.

- Yeah. I hear about that all the time, but I played with Michael Jordan. Even Draymond Green has wondered about LeBron's workload.

James said Green was right.

Players will have to be ready for the pre-match warming-up session one minute after they walk in on the court. If players fail to adhere to these time restrictions they could be fined up to $20,000.

"You make so much a big thing about my minutes", the Cleveland Cavaliers star told the media after the game. But at the end of the day, when we can get a win like this, everybody benefits from it.

The 32-year-old now leads the league with 37.9 minutes per contest, which is just a hair more than Milwaukee Bucks All-Star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo at 37.8 minutes. In Monday's blowout win over the Pistons, James only played 27 minutes.

Factoring in playoffs, James has played 51,043 minutes. "Not just me. Everybody".

When a reporter suggested to Lue that his favorite questions involved James' minutes, he quipped back, "love it", and ended his postgame news conference. Whether that means he takes a few games off for rest in the middle of the season, or he has some lower minute performances, he just needs to play a little less.

Indeed, it's not the Cavs' plan to play LeBron so much, but he gives them their best chance to win when he's on the court. "It's a pretty big step for us".

The Cavs held a 27-point halftime lead and led by as many as 39 before taking the starters out of the game. "That's what we're capable of doing when we play the right way".
