James is set to become the first player in NBA history to make 11 consecutive All-NBA 1st Teams. "It'll be made to please himself".
Following a 113-108 win over the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night in which he scored seven of his game-high 39 points on three dagger jumpers in the final minute, four-time MVP and three-time National Basketball Association champion LeBron James made a bold proclamation about his level of play in his 15th season.
"Probably an all-time high", James said.
Nance, though, was the story.
"So for 29 years, I thought about mental health as someone else's problem, " Love wrote in an essay for the Players Tribune posted Tuesday. "Then I was having trouble catching my breath". The Cavaliers do, however, need someone to consistently provide help for James and Love offensively. The Cavs have been in a funk lately as they try to integrate four new players, but they got a win before embarking on a two-week, six-game trip. And beyond that, it's possible Lue could keep Nance in his first five.
The rumours will only intensify as we approach free agency and it'll be hard to know exactly what LeBron's plans are as it appears that even he doesn't know what he'll do yet. Some were just isolation pull-ups from 3-point range and others were circus shots that had him falling into the crowd.
The Nuggets are one of the best teams in the league in offensive rebounds per game (#2), assists per game (#4) and points per game (#8).

If that's the mood right now in L.A., imagine how fans will react when the Lakers play the Cavs on March 12?
Cavaliers: Green was back on the floor after missing two games with lower back soreness. Andre Drummond scored 15 but didn't reach double-digit rebounds for the first time in 19 games.
At this stage of his career, The King's focus will be to find the best place to continue to contend for championships, and if Cleveland hasn't proved to do that, the Lakers will have to before making a pitch for his services.
Griffin credited Nance with fueling the Cavs.
On Christmas Day 2014, when James and the Cavaliers played Dwyane Wade in Miami, the production crew at ABC caught audio of James whispering to Wade something that sounded an very bad lot like, "Listen, we've done it before. He's talented. He's got a high ceiling". LA and Detroit are the only two teams that James averages less than 25 points per game against.
Detroit fell to 2-9 since February 9 and is 6-9 since Griffin arrived in a blockbuster trade. A 23-38 third quarter proved too much for Denver to overcome as they allowed the Mavericks to shoot 55.6% from long range in the game.
