After the Cavaliers’ 124-122 loss to the Pelicans in New Orleans on Monday night, Cavs’ superstar LeBron James sounded off.
James let his voice be heard, not only on the the team’s poor performance on the court, but also on (perhaps) the front office and the organization as a whole.
Here’s a snippet from ESPN.com’s Dave McMenamin:
“I just hope that we’re not satisfied as an organization,” James told a small group of beat reporters who travel regularly to cover Cleveland’s road games. “I just hope we’re not satisfied.”
“It’s great to have bodies,” James said. “Obviously, in the playoffs, you go down to what, eight max? And if somebody gets in foul trouble, you go to nine. You’re not playing back-to-backs. You have two days in between. You’re able to lock in.”
“It’s like when you don’t have bodies. It’s tough,” James said. “The [expletive] grind of the regular season. We’re a top-heavy team. We have a top-heavy team. We top-heavy as [expletive]. It’s me, [Kyrie Irving], [Kevin Love]. It’s top-heavy.”
James added that it’s been “a s— 2017 so far.” The Cavaliers have lost 5 of their last 7 games.
