Report: LeBron James calls Cleveland's plays, not David Blatt

If there was any doubt this is LeBron James' Cleveland Cavaliers, there shouldn't be any longer.

ESPN's Brian Windhorst was speaking on Bill Simmons' podcast, and he had this to say, via Deadspin:

"The Princeton offense that David Blatt installed in the preseason, they just threw that out. What typically happens--and this has been happening for like three months now--is LeBron will take the ball, and LeBron will call the play. David Blatt will see what play LeBron calls, and he will repeat it to the team. That happens on a regular basis."

After all, James essentially picked Kevin Love over Andrew Wiggins and has pushed Blatt to the side while discussing a call earlier in the season. When you're the best player on the planet, you can get away with quite a lot.
