LeBron and the Cavaliers Struggles Continue

We are one week in to the 2014-2015 NBA season and the Cleveland Cavaliers are playing at a level that are surpassing many people. LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love are all shooting below 41% on the season, the Cavaliers lone win came against the Chicago Bulls that didn’t have Derrick Rose or Joakim Noah for the full 48 minutes.  When asked about the Cavaliers struggles in the early part of the season, James said, “we all know Rome wasn’t built in a day,” just as he did in 2010 in the early games as a member of the Miami Heat.  The Heat started the season 9-8 before ending up Eastern Conference champions the same season. “It’s like building a car from scratch. I’ve done that before, I hated the process, and it got on my nerves. I sent it back to get it repainted about 100 times, and once it was finally finished, I got really excited about it.”  One of the biggest reasons James went back to Cleveland was to win a championship where he grew up, and where his career started.  He knew that it was going to be a big challenge, but did he know it was going to be this big of a challenge?  The Cavaliers are being scored on at an alarming rate, and their offense isn’t clicking.  Point guard Kyrie Irving hasn’t had an assist in the past five quarters, and James was held scoreless in the second half against the Trail Blazers Tuesday night for the first time since November of 2003 as a rookie. The Cavaliers have 78 games remaining on their regular season schedule giving them plenty of time to figure it out, however, with James being the competitor that he is, it may not take very long.
