Is LeBron James the real coach, GM of the Cleveland Cavaliers?

Tyronne Lue is stepping away from the Cleveland Cavaliers to focus on his health, but will his presence even be missed? Many people think LeBron James has been running the team anyway. James' voice has a lot of weight in the organization, which heavily influenced the Cavs to trade players at the deadline. Still, the Cavaliers have coaches and a general manager who make final decisions. James may have a say, but he ultimately doesn't run the team. What do you think? 🏀

Everyone knows LeBron James is calling the shots for Cleveland. The Cavaliers saw what life was like without him, and they're willing to give him anything to stay. So they'll let him call the plays, control the locker room and even have an influence on roster decisions. You can't look at Cleveland's trade deadline frenzy and think James didn't have a hand in it. He might not officially be a coach or general manager, but James is definitely running the team.

It's tough enough being scrutinized as a player. James wouldn't want the heat of even being a fake coach or GM. He already has the reputation of being a diva on the court. James is doing just fine dribbling the ball instead of dealing with roster moves or lineup changes. The Cavaliers already have people in place to make the final decisions within basketball operations. He might have a say, but ultimately, it's the executives and managers who say yes or no. James isn't running the team.
