Last night, David Blatt made an executive decision to sit LeBron James in his first game in Miami this season, citing rest and a heavy work load. The Cavs lost without him, 99-84, and Heat fans chanted “Bron is tired.”
Chris Bosh didn’t find it weird.
Earlier this season, James said he wanted to play all 82 games this season. But sitting out a game here and there is smart, given how many miles he has on his body. Don’t be surprised if this becomes a more regular occurrence.
