(LeBron) James made his first start this season at the “four” Friday night in the Cavaliers’ 108-83 dismissing of the Washington Wizards.
It had the look and feel of Cleveland’s “eureka moment,” sliding James over from the wing, moving Iman Shumpert into the starting lineup, playing smaller and faster in a way that easily handled the Wizards’ speed, and maybe, just maybe, could be the key to matching up with the Warriors in June.
Only, James is fully endorsing it, perhaps more fully than ever before.
“It’s definitely the right time,” said James, who posted 19 points, 13 rebounds, and seven assists against the Wizards.
