by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/8/2014) Cavaliers small forward LeBron James liked what he saw out of shooting guard Dion Waiters Friday as Waiters served as the sixth man, and James believes the role is a fit for the guard, the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports.

"I thought he had a terrific game today, and I told him so in the locker room," Blatt said. "Because he came in and did exactly what we needed him to do from the bench: Score the ball, he played hard and right."

The Cavaliers are off this weekend before facing the Pelicans Monday.

Irving did not speak with reporters after the exchange with James, who is reportedly unhappy with Irving dominating the ball.

For the season, Irving is averaging 3.8 assists per game, and he acknowledged that adjusting to new teammates has been a challenge.

When we get t that point where every possession matters, no possessions off, we have to move the ball, share the ball, be unselfish, we'll be a better team.

Cavaliers star LeBron James talks forgiveness for Dan Gilbert


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Cavaliers superstar LeBron James usually raises eyebrows with his athleticism, but he raised a few Thursday with his words about his once-stormy relationship with owner Dan Gilbert.

Some believed James would never return to Cleveland after a written Gilbert rant following his departure to Miami. But James has stated that he's a better man for having forgiven Gilbert.

"As a man, if you've got a problem with somebody, you sit down face to face and you talk to them eye to eye," James said. "And you hash it out and move on. So, I think a lot of things that go on in life or in sports with people kind of holding grudges is because they're afraid to actually take a step forward. It's a fine line between pride and progress, and I'm on the progress side. I'm not on the pride side."

James also spoke about his inability to recruit players to come to Cleveland before he left. That has certainly changed, given the arrival of fellow star forward Kevin Love and others, including Shawn Marion, on to the current roster.

"I recruited (before) I left here, but I just didn't win nothing so nobody wanted to play me," he said. "I recruited. I recruited Michael Redd. I recruited Joe Johnson. I recruited Chris Bosh. I recruited a lot of guys. I just didn't win, and they didn't want to come to Cleveland. So, I guess me winning two championships, it helped out a lot."
