(AP Photo/Elise Amendola)The sting of losing the 2017 NBA Finals remains fresh in the hearts and minds of the entire Cleveland Cavaliers organization, but perhaps more so on the team’s back bone and leader LeBron James.Despite the avalanche of criticism that will surely come for the Ohio-native in the coming days, his point guard had nothing but kind words for “The King.”ADVERTISEMENT “As a student of the game, it would be a disservice if I didn’t try to learn as much as possible while I’m playing with this guy,” Irving described the perennial All-Star.“Every single day, demanding more out of himself, demanding more out of us, the true testament of a consummate professional,” he added.Irving also lauded James for showing him what it takes to be successful in the league and his aspirations to become the same kind of person on and off the court.“You can’t skip any steps, and that was one thing that I came to understand,” he described James’ teachings. “Whether you want to believe in him or not, he’s still coming. And that’s the type of guy that I want to be with every single time I’m going to war, because I know what to expect.”The crafty playmaker out of Duke said he intends to continue playing alongside LeBron to reach his full potential.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES World’s 50 Best Restaurants launches new drinking and dining guide Lacson: SEA Games fund put in foundation like ‘Napoles case’ View commentslast_img
