Tyronn Lue wants the Cavs to be a more up-tempo team, and that means his star LeBron has taken the lead to get in better shape.
“I don’t think I’m in bad shape at all, just need to get in better shape for what we want to do,” LeBron James said following Monday’s shootaround. “I’m not that far off. I can get there in less than a week.”
Kevin Love disagreed with Lue’s assessment the team is out of shape.
“I don’t necessarily think we’re out of shape but for how we want to push the ball after misses and makes and get guys in and out of the lineup and get different lineups out there, I think that we can stand to be in better shape,” Love said. “I wouldn’t call us ‘out of shape.'”
Lue is trying to put his imprint and coaching style into play on the fly, no pun intended, we will see how it works out.
