Player-captain LeBron James Claims All-Star Game MVP

Eastern Conference Executive Says LeBron James Isn't Leaving The Cavs After This Season BC-BKN--Second Half Lookahead
Sammy Stanley | 23 February, 2018, 04:47

Laura Ingraham, a Fox News commentator, called out National Basketball Association superstars LeBron James and Kevin Durant for speaking out against President Donald Trump in a video segment on LeBron's website "The Undefeated".

I believe if more athletes ventured outside of their own worlds and were as charitable as James then the world would be a better place.

The NBA has always split the postseason by East and West, but teams have been too fluid between the conferences to feel beholden to the current setup.

But count Bickerstaff among those who initially view the new pieces as a better fit for James. So my voice has to be heard.

So as James enters free agency, the question becomes, what team can relieve some of the pressure off of James and bring him back to the finals? The other option would be to trade players like Hassan Whiteside, Dion Waiters and Tyler Johnson to teams with cap space to free up space to sign James, but that would be significantly more hard especially with Johnson's contract escalating from $5.8 million to $19.2 million in 2018-19. They've won two NBA championships in three years and have been to the NBA Finals three years in a row and appear to be not as focused on winning during the regular season as they have in the three previous years.

Grizzlies fans may simply hope for James to show up. Team LeBron had the "sizable" advantage, touting versatile big men like Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, Kristaps Porzingis, Kevin Durant and Kevin Love, with two-way guards like Russell Westbrook, Victor Oladipo and John Wall. Even with that being said, James puts his money where his mouth is by supporting causes like the W.K. Kellogg Foundation's Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT) national effort.

Antidepressants are effective, study shows
And while antidepressants are a common form of treatment, around a third of the people who take them don't respond to treatment. Some are more effective than others, but all were more effective than a placebo, and even a placebo was better than nothing.

Circumstances have changed significantly since Bickerstaff last saw the Cavaliers.

Then, only 12 days before the All-Star Game, New York Knicks' budding star center Porzingis tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee while dunking on fellow All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo during a game at Madison Square Garden.

And they're on the verge of regaining that groove again now, post makeover.

"I would disagree with that", James said Wednesday afternoon following the Cleveland Cavaliers' first practice since the break. "And that youth adds a ton of speed on both sides of the ball for him". "[I mean too much to] their best friend right here, my daughter that's at home, and my wife, and my family, and all these other kids who look up to me for inspiration, and try to find a way out".
