Camp LeBron appears to be a success as LeBron James and fellow Cleveland Cavalier teammates Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving, J.R. Smith, Anderson Varejao, Iman Shumpert, Richard Jefferson Joe Harris and even Sasha Kaun played some roundball in Miami.
Following the practice, the James gang posed for photo that was later posted to Instagram.
The most interesting takeaway from the photo is Love, who looks like he just got done playing some hardcore hoops.
According to Cleveland.com’s Terry Pluto, Love is making an excellent progress after undergoing shoulder surgery last spring.
Also noticeable is Irving, who doesn’t appeared as if he contributed–and that’s no surprise considering the former No. 1 overall pick is still recovering from a broken knee cap suffered during the NBA Finals.
It’s important for Irivng to take his time, because games in November and December mean little come June. The Cavs need to make sure Irving is healthy–that’s why the signing of Mo Williams was so important.
Judging by the picture, he looks to be in great physical shape and should be able to carry the load, along with Matthew Dellavedova while Irving rehabs.
Noticeably missing was Tristan Thompson, who is still without a contract, as the two sides appear to be $14-$15 million apart from reaching a new deal.
The Cavs tipoff the season Oct. 27 against the Chicago Bulls.
