Having lost four games in a row, this season does not appear to be the best for LeBron James nor the Cleveland Cavaliers. The most recent one was the loss to the Toronto Raptors which ended up in a 110-93 score and represents a four-game losing streak for the Cavaliers. Their next game is on Monday and they are expected to play Orlando Magic at home. This game is a must-win for LeBron’s team because if they lose, it will be the first five-game losing streak for James since 2011, according to Fox Sports.
According to Cleveland.com, James said before Saturday’s match-up between the Cavaliers and the Raptors that “he would change how he approaches each game,” pushing himself to play more aggressively. “Well I can sustain my effort as well, as close to 48 minutes as possible, and the guys that feed off me,” James said, adding that the team is not playing “consistently as hard as we can for 48 minutes.”
“When you’re not very good, you cannot consistently just have break downs and think you can make up for it later in the game,” he said.
“We were a fragile team from the beginning. Any little adversity that hits us, we just shell up,” he said, per Cleveland.com.
Also, according to Associated Press, James said:
“We got a four-game losing streak, so I stink,” he said. “I’m not doing my job….
“Me being the leader of the team, if I start hanging my head low then it’s going to start going to everyone else,” he said. “They look up to me. They look to me to make a difference and I’ve got to stay positive even through the rough times. As I’ve said before, this is not the darkest point that we’ll see this year. I’ve seen dark and this is very light to me.”
