Mike Mancias Rumors

On Sunday he led his Cleveland Cavaliers squad to a 121-114 victory over the Brooklyn Nets with 37 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists. Following the game we learned that James was suffering from a cold, which is why he only got three hours of sleep on Saturday night. At some point in the night, he moved from his hotel bed to the couch to elevate his head. When that didn’t work, he called his trainer, Mike Mancias, who made a middle-of-the-night run for cold medicine. James finally fell asleep somewhere in the 3 a.m. hour. He was awake by 6:30 and was up the rest of the day.
In the summer of 2008, as LeBron James and members of USA Basketball’s “Redeem Team” prepared for the Beijing Olympics, a 23-year-old James began ramping up the training regimen that has become a part of his standards today. “He leaves no stone unturned,” James’ longtime athletic trainer, Mike Mancias, told ESPN. “We do, collectively as a group, work as a group and say, ‘OK, what are we missing? What else? What else haven’t we tried? What else haven’t we uncovered?’ And, ‘Why not?'”

While James used to buck against scheduled rest, Lue has found him to be more flexible this season. “He’s gotten better,” Lue said of James. “He understands the big picture and what we’re trying to accomplish and the guy’s played so many minutes over the course of his career. He went to six straight Finals. He has to take some rest at times and when I talk to (James’ trainer) Mike Mancias and our training staff and they see that it’s a game where he should take off then that’s what I do. So he understands that. As much as he doesn’t like it, he has to deal with it.”
