LeBron James: I Would Never Waive My No-Trade Clause

LeBron James: I Would Never Waive My No-Trade Clause

The Cleveland Cavaliers earned a big overtime win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday, but that certainly doesn't erase the fact that the Cavs have been reeling for weeks now, and they need to find a way to string together wins. He is averaging 26.3 points, 8.6 assists and 8.0 rebounds per game across 52 games in his 15th National Basketball Association season. They're also 16-35-2 against the number in their last 53 home games, are 8-21-1 against the spread in their last 30 games when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game and are 14-37-1 against the number in their last 52 games overall. But don't worry; next up, the Cavs host the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight. Considering the fact that he doesn't seem to be slowing down with age at all, James' all-time marks in these categories could be astounding when he decides to retire.

"I owe it to my teammates to finish the season out", James said following the Cavs' 116-98 loss to the Magic in Orlando on Tuesday night.

The Cavaliers are no longer just frustrated and annoyed with Thomas, they are "no doubt" exhausted of James, and that's because he is now unhappy with how poorly his team is playing.

LeBron James publicly confirmed he will not waive his no-trade clause with the Cleveland Cavaliers ahead of this week's trade deadline.

Manning's hold on the starting job has gotten stronger since general manager Dave Gettleman and coach Pat Shurmur were hired. There is no time to waste for Manning, who has to learn a new offense for the third time in his 15 years with the Giants.

"I didn't think it would be like this, but it is something that we got to continue to keep fighting, try to dig ourselves out of this hole". I couldn't do that. "I mean that's not a good thing but I just want to be where I'm wanted".

James has a player option for the 18-19 season that he's been expected to decline to become a free agent. There is no guarantee that he will re-sign with the Cavs, but he made it clear that winning a title this season is still the focus.

"It was a great win for us". After the game, Cavs point guard Isaiah Thomas was vocal with his criticism of the team, saying, "when adversity hits, we go our separate ways".

With the trade deadline nearing, there's no guarantee that Thomas will remain with the Cavs, but one thing that's certain is if Thomas had it his way, he'll prefer to stick around to prove his worth, and hopefully even win it all this year with them. It remains to be seen if they can ride the momentum of the thrilling victory moving forward.
