Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are facing the same old NBA opposing teams but with new faces since of some of them will be reinforced by new players via drafts and player trading.
Prominent names in the trading game are: OKC player Kevin Durant who moved to Golden State Warriors, Chicago Bulls Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose who transferred to New York and Miami Heat Dwayne, who went to Chicago Bulls.
Lebron James seems not concerned about the current NBA player changes, concentrating instead on cheering for the Cleveland Indians in their pursuit of the World Series title. Off season, he was active in politics as a Hillary supporter and was supportive of the movement against gun violence.
Of course, James is already on the midst of training getting ready for the Cavaliers first game of the season on the quest for another shot at the NBA Championship title. The Cleveland Cavaliers has practically the same roster they had when they dethroned the Golden State Warriors last June.
Asked about their preparations for the upcoming season, James said "The vibe is the same. We want to put ourselves in a position to compete for a championship."
Both James and Coach Tyrone Lue are confident they will defend the title with what roster the Cleveland has, at the moment. The team has only four new faces, Chris Andersen, Kay Felder, DeAndre Liggins, and Mike Dunleavy.
The new recruits understand the roles expected of them when the Cavaliers play against the top teams in the NBA. With James as team leader, Coach Lue is confident that the team will blend together as one knowing that they have the best player in the planet.
James is unfazed by the new faces he will be meeting since he knows that his team has worked hard to prepare for the 2016 -2017 season. He is ready.
