LeBron James might be as good as gone.

"We continue to have good dialogue with his management team", Altman said Thursday after the Cavs drafted Alabama point guard Collin Sexton with the No. 8 pick.

We kept a level head, we said we needed to keep passing and tire the Swedes out and open up spaces. We're going to do that". "That's why they apologized, because they knew they did something wrong".

"We continue to have good dialogue with his management team", Altman told ESPN at the NBA Draft. "And I think the talent level of Collin, I'm nearly sure LeBron recognizes".

While consistently averaging a double-double, making All-Star appearances, and being able to knock down open threes all while continuing to produce on both ends of the floor even though the power forward has been counted on to guard the opposing center at times, Love hasn't let any of that affect him.
