"I think having LeBron James, that's one factor and Kevin Love, I think those two guys", Lue said.

During an interview with ESPN's Dave McMenamin, Love said he's trying not to focus on the possibility but also acknowledge the potential importance of postseason success on LeBron James' upcoming free-agent decision. But whenever the postseason starts, Regular Season LeBron becomes Playoff LeBron. First and foremost, the Pacers will have no answer for small forward LeBron James. And you know I don't mean only the players, but the coaching staff and everybody. Furthermore, James will play all 82 games for the first time in his career.

In four meetings against the Pacers this campaign, James averaged 28.8 points on.558 shooting to go with 10.3 rebounds and 8.5 assists.

Earlier in the season, James slam-dunked his way to a record 867th consecutive regular-season game with at least 10 points, surpassing Michael Jordan.

James finished the regular season leading the National Basketball Association in minutes played, with 36.9 minutes per game, the second straight year he has led the league in that stat. He has been playing since he was 18 and has been dominant to this day. "He's been playing great but LeBron is clearly the MVP of the league". No superstar has gone through more this year - the loss of his No. 2 star, the Isaiah Thomas saga, Kevin Love's injury, the revamped roster, the coaching saga - and because of this, no superstar has been forced to shoulder more of the load for his team. While things are certainly different this time around, the Cavaliers are without superstar point guard Kyrie Irving, and IN is without a star of their own IN small forward Paul George.

Lue knows that Cleveland's defense will be key to their success.

Apple released its original iPad in the previous year that LeBron James failed to lead an NBA team to the NBA Finals.

The Rockets went just 3-3 in April, but considering they were 28-1 from Jan 29-March 30, there is no doubting their abilities. Needless to say, Victor Oladipo, who averaged a career-high 23.1 points per game, will be a problem for the Cavs defense, and it might be hard for Lue to slow him down.

Westbrook entered Oklahoma City Thunders' 137-123 win against the Memphis Grizzles on Wednesday needing 16 rebounds to complete his triple double average for a second straight season.

As I stated before this discussion comes around every single season.

Lue, well, he was so sick all season that he figures there's more than 20 games he shouldn't have coached. There isn't a whole lot left for The King to prove this year. He led his team in pretty much every category. League leader in total points and clutch scoring. The Knicks have reportedly joined the sweepstakes as well with a banner near the main entrance of the Madison Square Garden daring LeBron to prove he is "King of NY".
