Cleveland does not need either to be great. If they can have a few solid games in the playoffs , the James will be able to play fewer regular-season minutes to give Williams the time he needs to work But I do think he should also NOT be happy -- LeBron and the Cavs should plan on continuing to

The NBA is still figuring out how to complete the rest of the season whenever play can resume, and LeBron James has his opinion on what the league should do.

Appearing this week on Uninterrupted’s “Road Trippin’ Podcast” with former Cleveland Cavaliers teammates Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye, the four-time MVP said he was against going right into the postseason.

“One thing you can’t just do is go straight to the playoffs,” said James, per Dave McMenamin of ESPN. “Because it discredits the 60-plus games that guys had fighting for that position.”

LeBron James is a great player who’s now on the Lakers, but LeBron has a problem. Players like Michael Jordan and Kobe did move the ball around no matter how much people think they ball hogged. They benefitted from the triangle and were always aware of getting their teammates in rhythm and

One possible scenario mentioned by James, 35, was a truncated regular-season finale of five to 10 games before the playoff bracket were to begin. He also mentioned his concern about the sudden layoff negatively affecting his body.

“When you’ve been building six months of conditioning and preparation and then (it’s gone), the narrative that I don’t like (is), ‘Well, now guys get so much rest.’ Or, like, ‘LeBron, he’s 35, he’s got so many minutes on his body, now he gets so much rest,' ” James added. “It’s actually the opposite for me because my body, when we stopped playing, was asking me, like, ‘What the hell are you doing?’ My body was like, ‘Hey man, what the hell is going on? It’s March 13th, you’re getting ready for the playoffs, why are you shutting down right now?’ And I was right there turning the corner, like, I felt like I was rounding third base, getting ready for the postseason. So the rest factor, I think it’s a little bit (overblown). Especially when you’re in the full swing of things.”

LeBron James brought back Taco Tuesday at a time we all need it

  LeBron James brought back Taco Tuesday at a time we all need it LeBron James brought back Taco Tuesday at a time we all need itWe haven’t seen the Los Angeles Lakers megastar celebrate Taco Tuesdays in a loooong time. Back in August, it was all the rage: James would post videos of himself and his family — sometimes with guest stars like Anthony Davis — chowing down on tacos on Tuesdays. He did it on the set of Space Jam 2. He did it with 2 Chainz and kids from his foundation on stage.

In one small bit of unrelated good news, the 16-time All-Star did mention that his film, “Space Jam 2,” was still on schedule despite prevalent postponements in the movie industry due to the global coronavirus pandemic.

“(It) has always been scheduled to come out in June of 2021. So we’re kind of (OK])” James said. “And a lot of it right now is animation, so being indoors is actually great for us. So we’re still on. Just like everything in the world, (it) is slowed down a little bit, but we’re still on target. I’m looking forward to it. During this time right now, I wish we could release it right now, man, and give people some things to watch in their households. But we got until next year, next summer. We’re excited about it.”

On the topic of the remainder of this season, both owners and players seem to be united in their desire to salvage it. James, who is especially affected as the leader of the No. 1 seed in the West in a year that represents one of his last shots at winning an NBA title, underscores the point that a solution has to make sense both equitably and physically for all.

How the NBA can salvage 2019-20 if the coronavirus pandemic delays the season into July .
The NBA has reportedly discussed a number of scenarios should the coronavirus pandemic subside and the season resume. Chief among them is hosting a shortened regular season and playoffs without fans at a single quarantined location, most likely Las Vegas. According to the New York Post’s Marc Berman, the league prefers the regular season hit the 70-game mark that satisfies regional TV contracts, which means each team would have between three and seven games as a tune-up for the postseason.
