LeBron James: Cavaliers Were Playing Better Last Year

"Right now we’re playing at an OK level, we’re not playing as well as we did last year but we can be better than that team," team captain LeBron James said. "But we had to go through some bumps coming out of the blocks and we’ve done a great job of playing consistent basketball."

Overall, O’Neal has accepted his role and handled playing the fewest minutes and taking the fewest shots of his career without any hint of outward or inward distain. After some rocky moments over playing time, Zydrunas Ilgauskas has accepted his role coming off the bench and is playing well.
