Tyronn Lue not anxious about minutes for LeBron James

Tyronn Lue doesn't want to hear about LeBron James' minutes.

James led the National Basketball Association last season with 37.8 minutes per game and once again tops the list with 37.9 per contest this year. However, Lue is apparently not overly concerned. He was 39. He played 37 minutes a night. Karl Malone was 37, played 38 minutes a night, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Kobe. So you know, everybody's built different, and if you're, you know, one of the greats, you know, sometimes you've got to play, sometimes you get rest, like tonight. It's not a huge issue. "Not just me. Everybody".

James has been playing monstrous quantities of minutes so far in the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season, as the Cavaliers have battled to overcome a lack of consistency at point guard and some of the more serious defensive issues in the league. As Lue made his way down the hallway, he turned back to the group of reporters who regularly cover the team and encouraged them to "look it up" for themselves, rattling off a few more names of all-time greats in the process.

Still, the 33-year-old downplayed the drop in minutes and highlighted the importance of securing the victory. In fact, James, along with Cavs teammates Dwyane Wade and J.R. Smith, were in attendance for the show at The Q, and they had pretty darn good seats. "We haven't had a win like this in a very long time".

Conte urges Chelsea to ease pressure with Qarabag triumph
We had a lot of problems and also we're trying to change something in the tactical aspect, to find different solutions. They drew twice with Atletico and we have great respect for this team, we must be very clear.

The Cleveland Cavaliers (10-7) will take their five-game winning streak into a game against the Brooklyn Nets (6-10) on Wednesday evening.

Against the Pistons, though, James was limited to 27 minutes-still joint second on the team, behind stand-in starting point guard Jose Calderon. "That's what we're capable of doing when we play the right way".

We wonder what Kristaps Porzingis has to say about all of this "King of New York" talk. "There weren't any lapses, there weren't any letups throughout the game". However, after the game, there was only one question on the mind of media members.
