Jan. 28 10:27 PM PT11:27 PM MT12:27 AM CT1:27 AM ET6:27 GMT14:27 11:27 PM MST1:27 AM EST10:27 UAE07:271:27 ET12:27 AM CT4:27 - James recorded 21 points on 7-of-8 shooting and contributed nine assists to Wednesday's win over Phoenix.

Jan. 27 9:52 AM PT10:52 AM MT11:52 AM CT12:52 PM ET17:52 GMT1:52 10:52 AM MST12:52 PM EST21:52 UAE18:5212:52 ET11:52 AM CT15:52 - James disdains the notion he's a coach killer. Widely criticized in basketball circles for a perception that he pushed for Cleveland's front office to fire David Blatt last week, James said the criticism that he undercuts coaches is unfair.
Analysis: "I've never, in my time since I picked up a basketball, ever undermined a coach, ever disrespected a coach," James said. "You ask any of my little league coaches, my high school coaches, coaches I've played for in tournaments, camps, my NBA coaches, I've always respected what they wanted to do." James said his willingness to speak his mind has led to the criticism that he's not always on the same page with his coaches.

Analysis: The King came to play in coach Tyronn Lue's debut, though the rest of his teammates mostly stunk in a 96-83 loss to the Bulls. James took 27 shots after six straight games of 17 or less, a possible trend going forward.
Jan. 21 8:27 PM PT9:27 PM MT10:27 PM CT11:27 PM ET4:27 GMT12:27 9:27 PM MST11:27 PM EST8:27 UAE05:2723:27 ET10:27 PM CT2:27 - James notched a 'LeBronesque' double-double Thursday.

Analysis: James contributed 27 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists and two steals. He scored 37 in his last game so he is heating up.
Jan. 11 9:44 PM PT10:44 PM MT11:44 PM CT12:44 AM ET5:44 GMT13:44 10:44 PM MST12:44 AM EST9:44 UAE06:440:44 ET11:44 PM CT3:44 - James matched a season high with 37 points in a 95-85 win over Philadelphia on Sunday night.

Jan. 8 8:41 PM PT9:41 PM MT10:41 PM CT11:41 PM ET4:41 GMT12:41 9:41 PM MST11:41 PM EST8:41 UAE05:4123:41 ET10:41 PM CT2:41 - James had a tame effort Friday.

A spokesman for James said the sides mutually agreed to end their relationship, which began shortly after Manziel was drafted into the NFL.
Analysis: This wasn't surprising since a true champion like James has no reason to associate with riffraff like Manziel.

Dec. 18 10:23 PM PT11:23 PM MT12:23 AM CT1:23 AM ET6:23 GMT14:23 11:23 PM MST1:23 AM EST10:23 UAE07:231:23 ET12:23 AM CT4:23 - After a crash into the courtside-seated wife of PGA champion Jason Day on Thursday, James emerged from the crowd and finished with 33 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds in the Cavaliers' 104-100 home victory over the Thunder.

Dec. 5 10:18 PM PT11:18 PM MT12:18 AM CT1:18 AM ET6:18 GMT14:18 11:18 PM MST1:18 AM EST10:18 UAE07:181:18 ET12:18 AM CT4:18 - James had 37 points in Friday's loss to New Orleans.

It's the first game James will miss this season, and would have been his third game in Miami since he left the Heat to return to the Cavaliers after the 2014 NBA Finals.
Analysis: Cavaliers coach David Blatt says he made the decision in part because James logged 45 minutes in Cleveland's overtime loss at New Orleans on Friday night. The Cavaliers landed in Miami shortly after 4 a.m. on Saturday, and didn't arrive at their hotel for about another hour.
Dec. 2 9:41 PM PT10:41 PM MT11:41 PM CT12:41 AM ET5:41 GMT13:41 10:41 PM MST12:41 AM EST9:41 UAE06:410:41 ET11:41 PM CT3:41 - James didn't have his best night Tuesday, finishing with 24 points, 13 rebounds and nine turnovers in a loss to Washington.

Nov. 5 10:05 PM PT11:05 PM MT12:05 AM CT1:05 AM ET6:05 GMT14:05 11:05 PM MST1:05 AM EST10:05 UAE07:051:05 ET12:05 AM CT4:05 - James scored 23 points to lead the Cavaliers past the Knicks on Wednesday.
Analysis: It was a bit of an off night by James' standards, as he finished 9 of 23 from the field and had just five rebounds and three assists along with four steals. Those numbers are still plenty good enough to help any owner.
Nov. 2 7:49 PM PT8:49 PM MT9:49 PM CT10:49 PM ET3:49 GMT11:49 8:49 PM MST10:49 PM EST7:49 UAE (+1)04:4922:49 ET9:49 PM CT1:49 - James became the youngest player to reach 25,000 career points, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers past the winless Philadelphia 76ers 107-100 on Monday night.

He became the sixth active player with 25,000 points and the 20th overall, joining Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki, San Antonio's Tim Duncan, Minnesota's Kevin Garnett, Los Angeles' Kobe Bryant and Paul Pierce of the Clippers.
Oct. 29 10:27 PM PT11:27 PM MT12:27 AM CT1:27 AM ET5:27 GMT13:27 10:27 PM MST12:27 AM EST9:27 UAE06:271:27 ET11:27 PM CT3:27 - James hurt his fantasy owners Wednesday.

Analysis: James had been limited in practice since receiving an anti-inflammatory injection in his back on Oct. 13.

Oct. 19 2:37 PM PT3:37 PM MT4:37 PM CT5:37 PM ET21:37 GMT5:37 2:37 PM MST4:37 PM EST1:37 UAE (+1)23:3717:37 ET4:37 PM CT19:37 - James will sit out Cleveland's final preseason game against Dallas on Monday night, but Cavaliers coach David Blatt said the four-time MVP will be ready when the regular season opens next week.
Analysis: James, who had an anti-inflammatory injection in his back last week, hasn't played since Oct. 12. Asked before Cleveland's preseason finale against the Mavericks if there was any chance James wouldn't be ready when the Cavaliers visit Chicago on Oct. 27, Blatt said, ''he will absolutely be ready for the season opener.''
Oct. 15 3:59 PM PT4:59 PM MT5:59 PM CT6:59 PM ET22:59 GMT6:59 3:59 PM MST5:59 PM EST2:59 UAE (+1)00:5918:59 ET5:59 PM CT21:59 - James has received an anti-inflammatory injection to ease discomfort in his back.
Analysis: This would not prohibit James from playing in Cleveland's final two exhibitions next week. But coach David Blatt said Thursday he may rest the four-time MVP until the regular season. James missed a career-high 13 games last season.
July 9 10:51 AM PT11:51 AM MT12:51 PM CT1:51 PM ET17:51 GMT1:51 10:51 AM MST12:51 PM EST21:51 UAE19:5113:51 ET12:51 PM CT16:51 - James has agreed to a one-year, $23 million contract with the Cavaliers for next season. The deal includes a $24 million player option for 2016-17.
Analysis: The agreement is not a surprise since James has said he intends to finish his career with Cleveland. He re-signed as a free agent with the Cavaliers last summer after four years in Miami.
