It’s safe to say that, during his long career, we’ve seen multiple versions of LeBron James.
He carried a jovial, at times goofy attitude with him during his first stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers. When he became villainized for joining the Miami Heat via a convoluted TV special, he seemed to take pleasure in being the bad guy. After having some sense knocked into him with the 2011 Finals loss, it was the first time he became truly and solely dedicated to being the best player in the NBA.
However, the iteration of James we’re seeing during this current season with the Cavaliers is unlike anything we’ve seen, at least with this team.
