Chicago — LeBron James knows the Cleveland Cavaliers and the likely No. 1 pick in next month’s draft, Duke’s Kyrie Irving, and he feels they’ll be a good fit for each other. James said he was glad the way it turned out. “I’m happy for the franchise and happy for the fans,” James said after the Miami Heat’s shootaround Wednesday morning as they prepared for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Chicago Bulls. “I think it is a good step for them.” James said he knows that Irving will have certain expectations of him because of the situation he may be coming into, helping step into the shoes that James left as the Cavs’ last No. 1 overall pick in 2003. He said Irving shouldn’t face the same pressure. “If it’s Kyrie, I don’t think you automatically place the franchise tag on him, but he’s good enough where, if he continues to work hard, he could be that guy for that team,” James said. “It’s a tough situation for anyone to be given the franchise tag coming out of college, but I think he’s one of the kids who is up for the challenge.”
Who does he think he is? Thanks for the lecture Bron Bron but we as a city don't give a shit what you have to say about our draft picks. We are picking first because of you ass hole! So don't go lecture us on how to handle the picks. Does he think he won championships and is loved by our city now? Quit talking about the Cavaliers and worry about your own damn series. We don't care what you have to say.
