LeBron: Good health is key to Warriors' success

The Golden State Warriors' 15-0 start can be attributed to the fact that they are the "most healthy team I've ever seen in NBA history," LeBron James said.

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

Last season, LeBron James had a little tiff with Tobias Harris before going off. Does that have a carryover effect? "I don't ever start altercations," he said. "But I don't mind them when they happen. It kind of fuels me sometimes, fuels my guys. I'm never one to start up an altercation or I'm not a bully. I was never a fan of the bully. But I don't mind knocking them down."

No more pregame intros for Cavaliers

Instead of their usual elaborate intros, Cavs players are heading straight to the huddle. Said LeBron James to "It's just about being focused and preparing for the game. It's something we did in Miami at certain points. It's about playing the game the right way and your approach. Staying locked in and being ready to go."
