LeBron James returns to Twitter with more positive outlook on Cavaliers

It was all doom and gloom for the most part from LeBron James following Monday’s 124-122 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans, the team’s fifth loss in seven games. But in his second appearance on Twitter Tuesday, in an effort to perhaps temper the severity of his original critique, James took a much more positive outlook on the current situation.

The Cleveland Cavaliers superstar issued a pair of tweets in which he suggested the Cavaliers will “bounce back.”

James got things started on Monday night by issuing a scathing critique of the front office and the current state of the roster, saying the team’s makeup is “top-heavy as (expletive).”

James’ suggested solution to the problems plaguing the Cavs?

“We need a (expletive) playmaker,” he said. “I’m not saying you can just go find one, like you can go outside and see trees. I didn’t say that.”

After seemingly calling out general manager David Griffin in his expletive-laden comments the previous night, James did take to Twitter to clarify that he wasn’t holding Griffin entirely responsible.

Backtracking on social media aside, it’s hardly surprising for James to speak so candidly on these kind of issues. After all, James has long served as the Cavs’ de facto player-coach-general manager in essence if not in name.

James did proclaim in his screed Monday night that “it’s been a (expletive) 2017 so far.” While that may indeed be the case, there remains a chance Griffin — with James’ presumed input — will be able to make something happen to make James feel better about things.
