LeBron James Refused To Commit To Cleveland When Asked By Dan Gilbert

LeBron James Refused To Commit To Cleveland When Asked By Dan Gilbert”

The #San Antonio Spurs tried to acquire All-Star point guard #Kyrie Irving in the offseason before he was finally traded by the #Cleveland Cavaliers to the Boston Celtics.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski appeared on SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt on Wednesday night after the Boston-Cleveland game, and the discussion turned to Irving, who was ultimately traded to the Celtics. Coach Gregg Popovich also wanted to use Irving for the stretch run and playoffs. Kyrie Irving was on the Cavs with James at the time. But none of them can touch Irving's support in the fan vote.

Entering this game, Irving is averaging a career-high 24.8 points, while James is also putting out career-bests 27.7 points, 9.2 assists and 8.1 rebounds per game, while playing nearly 31 minutes a game. The Pacers ended up sending George to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Until the Cavs start racking up some wins against the league's better teams, that hot streak they put together when they reeled off 18 victories out of 19 games will look more and more hollow because it was mostly against weaker teams.

Rozier scored the last eight Boston points of the first quarter to give the Celtics an 11-point lead, and had another eight in a row midway through the fourth when they expanded the lead to 21.

Following a 102-88 loss to the Boston Celtics, per ESPN's Dave McMenamin, James said he's always concerned about other teams getting better but is more focused on Cleveland progressing.

The Cavaliers had a miserable shooting night, making just 31-of-89 attempts for 34.8 percent shooting. Kevin Love, who is averaging 19.6 points per game this season, was limited to two points on 1-of-11 shooting.
