Cleveland Coffee Company owner Brendan Walton found out that his company’s popular coffee line endorsed by Matthew Dellavedova was coming to an end when he saw a tweet from LeBron James. Dellavedova, according to James, had a agreed to an offer sheet with Milwaukee. Which meant that selling “G’day Mate” again next season probably wasn’t happening. “I said ‘oh no that’s not a good sign,” Walton said. “LeBron has more of a fast track to [the Cavaliers front office] than I do.”
“This offseason was a lot different for me only because last year, I wasn’t able to even lift a 15, 20-pound dumbbell above my head. “I asked Kevin Willis, ‘How did you stay so long in the league? How did you keep your body the way it was in order to play so many years?’ He said, ‘A lot of it was making sure I did my due-diligence with my body and got all the proper treatments it needed.’ He said in a funny reference, ‘I would eat that iron,’ so he stayed in the weight room and continued to work on his body. From a health standpoint, I feel great. This may be the best I’ve felt coming into a season health-wise.”
