Their star player Lebron James, who is averaging league-high (10.5%) in this season and he is key to their hopes of winning the NBA championship trophy.
 
The three-time NBA champion insists that he is not looking beyond the regular season with the playoffs set to be played between August 17 and October 13, 2020.
 
“I’m not paying attention to what’s going on with the eighth seed right now, there’s too much that can happen,” James said.
 
“And then there’s play-in games to decide that, so it’s too far away right now.”
