Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers have finally figured it out. The Cavs notched their 13th consecutive win against the Sacramento Kings, 101-95 Wednesday night.

Lebron James was one assist shy of a triple-double. James ended the night with 32 points, 11 rebounds, and 9 assist. With 20 seconds left on the clock the Kings were only down by 2 points. The game was sitting at 95 to 97 until James drilled a step back three pointer coming out of a time out.

“A lot of teams are not expecting me to shoot a lot of outside shots,” James said. “But I feel just as comfortable out there as I do in the paint. So, I’m just going to continue to improve my game where I’m keeping defenders and defenses off balance and they just don’t know where it’s going to come from.”

“He’s just demanding the ball,” Korver said of James. “He’s like, ‘Give me the ball, we’re about to win.’ And I’ve been around some guys who’ve had amazing years. I’ve been playing with him, and Derrick [Rose] when he was MVP. Allen Iverson when I was young. Guys who could just, man, amazing.

“But [James has] taken this to a whole new level. It’s amazing to have a better than a front-row seat, because I’m usually on the court next to him somewhere. So, he’s playing really special basketball at the end of the game and, I’ll say it again, I’m glad he’s on my team.”

Dwayne Wade is calling it quits after the 2018 NBA season.

The 12-time All-Star already has three championships is ready to walk away from the game. Wade announced his return in video titled “One Last Dance.”

“This decision is bigger than the game of basketball,” said the soon to be 37-year-old. “This decision don’t have nothing to do with the talent I have in my body. Yeah, I’m not as quick as I used to be. Yeah, I don’t jump as high as I used to. Yeah, I don’t. Yeah, I don’t. Yeah, I don’t.

“A lot of you guys see me is as a three-time champion, a 12-time All-Star, an Olympic gold medalist, y’all didn’t see that kid that no one [saw] because he was small, because he couldn’t shoot as good as everybody else,” he said. “Y’all didn’t see the grind. Y’all didn’t see the tears.”

Wade will return with Miami Heat for his last season. Many fans will forget about his lost tape years in Chicago and Cleveland.

“I still see a player who can contribute heavily if he really wants to,” Heat president Pat Riley said to reporters in July. “If he plays, he’s going to want to do that. We don’t want him back as a place-mat holder or somebody who’s going to be a veteran in the locker room. Dwyane is a great player, a great talent. He’s not the same guy he was in 2006, but he can be a very good player for us and can make a big difference for us. We want him back as a guy that realizes if this is going to be his last year or whatever, we want this to be his best year ever.”

“And truthfully, I do not because the season is long, and it’s more important for me and my family to walk away healthy than to willfully embrace the warrior mentality and limp away too late,” he said in the statement.

“This was an overwhelming decision, but I’m at peace with myself and my family.”
