LeBron’s Minutes on the Decline?

LeBron James No fantasy draft will go down without LeBron James going among the top three, dependant upon scoring.  But one thing that owners may want to consider is the minutes that James may (or may not) play this year. 

There has been an ongoing concern over the amount of time that James spends on the floor, but most of this is due to the lack of supporting cast that dons the Wine and Gold.  But with the addition of Mo Williams, and the re-signing of Delonte West, Danny Ferry may finally have a few more pieces to help keep things together while James gets a bit of rest.  Cleveland’s Terry Pluto hinted towards this movement this weekend, and I do not think it is too far-fetched. 

James just finished playing in the Olympics.  The Cavaliers fell a bit flat in the playoffs last season, especially towards the end of games.  And while we heard this in the past about several other stars (specifically Steve Nash or Jason Kidd), do not be surprised if James isn’t logging 40-plus minutes every night.  Of course, do not be shocked if he plays every minute of the season; just know that it isn’t the initial plan.
