LeBron: We Don’t Need Thompson’s Contract ‘Distraction’


After dipping his toe into the Tristan Thompson contract negotiations with an Instagram post late Saturday night calling for the Cleveland Cavaliers to “Get it done!!!!”, LeBron James dived headfirst into the situation on Sunday.

“It’s kind of like the elephant in the room all over, for everybody,” James said after practice.

“The last thing you need is a distraction when you try to make a championship run. And we have that right now. And it’s unfortunate for both sides that we’re going through it right now as a team. It’s not an excuse, we will be ready to go but hopefully something happens in the near future.”
