Much like in Miami, when LeBron James was there, everything the Cleveland Cavaliers do this season is part of the soap opera. The latest “sensational” story line: LeBron is calling some plays.
If you have LeBron James on your team, you should let him call some plays as he sees the defenses/matchups dictate. Do you tell Peyton Manning “don’t change the play call, go with what the OC sends into your headset?” That would be idiotic. LeBron is as high IQ a player as there is in the league, he sees the game. You should give him the freedom and David Blatt is smart to do so.
It’s different if Russell Westbrook or even James Harden wants to do it.
