January 16th vs. Cleveland Cavaliers
2013-14 Season Series: LAC 1 – CLE 1
Last season this spot is likely reserved for the Miami Heat. Thanks to an off-season change by LeBron James, this spot is now reserved for the Cavaliers until further notice–aka if LeBron decides to leave again.
Entering the third stretch of his career, this may be the most interesting James yet as all eyes are, once again, upon him. James has replaced the lavish Miami life for home in Cleveland, spurned the legendary Pat Riley to depend on Dan Gilbert to put him in the position to win, moved on from a top-5 coach in Erik Spoelstra to the unproven, unknown David Blatt, ousted the 2014 number one overall pick in Andrew Wiggins from Cleveland, and swapped out Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh for Kyrie Irving.
All in one summer and he’s still in prime position to compete for a NBA championship? There may not be a more calculated person in NBA history than James.
It’s gonna be excitement seeing these two teams face off. Love and Griffin. Kyrie and CP3. LeBron James. ALL THE OFFENSE.
Oh yeah. Don’t tell anyone, but this could be the NBA Finals matchup in June of 2015. #FUN.
