LeBron James A Game-Time Decision For Tuesday's Opener Vs. Celtics

LeBron James is known not only for his elite basketball prowess, but also for his business savvy.

Cleveland kicks off their 2017-18 campaign against Boston tonight, and you can bet your bottom dollar that this ad will run during the game. James was held out of Friday's preseason finale in Orlando.

Injury-hit LeBron James is likely to miss the season opener against the Boston Celtics, but the Cleveland Cavaliers have been prepared to do it without the superstar, the team's new recruit Dwyane Wade said on Tuesday.

James participated in Tuesday's morning shootaround at Quicken Loans Arena, but did not talk with reporters after the session.

"We all expect, everyone around expects him to play because that's what he does", said Wade, who's looking to play his first regular-season game on James' team since the two were with Miami in April, 2014.

"We've got the best fans in the world and they're going to do whatever they see best", he said.

With a revamped roster and more offensive options than ever, Lue believes the Cavs are more equipped to compete when James is on the bench. "Whatever decision they make, that's the right one".
