During the most recent episode of Road Trippin’ on Uninterrupted, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade — peanut butter and jelly — joined Channing Frye, Allie Clifton and Rafael Hernandez Brito to talk about a number of fun topics, including that [banana] boat ride. “Jelly definitely said, ‘This is not a good idea.’ But we have one friend who is the biggest gasser ever and that’s Chris Paul,” James said. “Wherever we go, if it’s like climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, he’s like, ‘We’ve gotta do it.’ So he was the one who gassed us. Then Gab (Gabrielle Union) was like, ‘We’ve gotta do it.’ She was right there with him.”
LeBron James agrees with teammate Channing Frye that he’s not yet playing to 100 percent of his capabilities. James told reporters Wednesday that he agreed with his teammates assessment of his level of engagement in December. And he also said that he will be slowly building up his engagement as the Cavs get closer to the postseason. “I like it, it sounds good. I could play better,” James said. “But I think right now I’m in a really good groove. For me every month I get better and better. I get stronger and stronger as the months go on. I want to continue to get better every month. This is December I’m at 80. January I’ll be at 85. Then I’ll be 90 in February. 95 in March. And hopefully in April I’ll be at 100 and hopefully continue until June.”
The Cleveland Cavaliers won their 11th consecutive game Saturday night with a 116-111 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. To close the game, LeBron James scored Cleveland’s final 13 points to help survive a late run from the Grizzlies. Which is why it’s pretty impressive to hear Channing Frye say that he believes James is only at “80% engagement” despite putting up amazing statistics in his 15th season. “Well everyone was talking like, ‘Hey, this is not Playoff LeBron.’ Usually LeBron gives you about 60 percent. He’s about 80 percent LeBron and it’s looking effortless so pretty scary,” Frye said, according to Chris Manning of Fear The Sword. “This is 80 percent engagement. He’s engaged on offense and defense. Tonight he didn’t have a lot of rebounds, but every night almost has a triple-double, he’s shooting the ball well, he’s seeing the game a lot better, he’s diverting to his teammates and that’s pretty scary.”
