REPORT: LeBron James Is ‘Frustrated and Concerned’ About The Cavs Not Making an Offseason Move


Since losing in the five games to the Warriors in the 2017 NBA Finals, the Cavs are yet to make a big offseason move that would bring them closer to competing with them in a matchup we will likely see in the 2018 NBA Finals. Nobody is more frustrated by the lack of the Cavs offseason moves than LeBron James. On a mission to be the greatest basketball player of all-time, James knows he has to make the most of his prime and win as many NBA Championships as possible. The climate of the NBA now requires three-four stars on one team to win an NBA title and James was hoping the Cavs would add that fourth this summer. There have been strong rumors all offseason that LBJ will head West next season and join the LA Lakers, which may have something to do with the Cavs choosing not to make a move. Via USA Today:

LeBron James, the NBA’s most powerful player and biggest star who brought the Cleveland Cavaliers their first NBA championship, is concerned about the Cavaliers’ offseason, a person close to the situation told USA TODAY Sports.

Expecting an aggressive offseason approach that would close the gap on the champion Golden State Warriors, James soon found his anticipation and optimism diminished after Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert dismantled the front office, declining days before the draft and free agency to bring back general manager David Griffin and vice president of basketball operations Trent Redden.

Gilbert’s decision left the Cavaliers without the franchise’s top two front-office execs at a critical time, and it left James frustrated and concerned about the team’s ability to put together a roster that can better compete with Golden State, the person with direct knowledge of James’ thinking told USA TODAY Sports. The person was not authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity.
