The challenge for Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue in his first full season at the helm isn’t just how to direct LeBron James when he’s on the court but also figuring out a way to keep the 14-year veteran off it. As Cavs training camp opens this week, Lue said maintaining James, 31, for the long haul is a priority.
“I’ve looked at the schedule,” Lue said Wednesday. “Just seeing what makes sense and what’s smart when playing four-in-five type of nights. Can’t run our guys into the ground. We have to be smart, understand we have to take care of our bodies and take care of our key guys. Make sure that when we get to the playoffs we’re ready to go.”
