#LeBron James has been around the #NBA for a long time. He has been to more consecutive NBA Finals than anyone in the modern era, both with the Miami Heat and the #Cleveland Cavaliers. He knows what is important and what is not when it comes to wins and losses. That made it important for him to get something off his chest after the Cavaliers dropped their third straight loss of the season - this one to the New York Knicks.

LeBron on the Knicks loss

When he was asked about the Cleveland Cavaliers struggles to start off this NBA season, with a 3-4 record and three straight losses, LeBron was completely dismissive of the question.

LeBron asked what month it is and answered his own question with "October."

He then said that he is not going to go crazy on this because it is a very long season and there are a lot more games to play. James then completely dismissed it by saying he is the wrong person to ask because he is too positive right now.

The loss to the New York Knicks was a big one, with the Knicks winning 114-95 in what had to be a tough loss for Derrick Rose, who last played for the Knicks while remaining frustrated there because they couldn't win game. Now, the Cavaliers have dropped into the bottom half of the Eastern Conference while the Knicks picked up their second win of the season in the victory over Cleveland.

The Cavaliers struggles

The Cleveland Cavaliers got their starting point guard back for the first time since he fell to injury in the second game of the season.

Derrick Rose played [VIDEO]well in his first game back, scoring 15 points, but LeBron James struggled in the game.

Moving back to the small forward position, LeBron James finished with a season-low 16 points on 46-percent shooting from the field. He did finish with a double-double with 10 rebounds. Kevin Love also had a double-double with 22 points and 11 rebounds.

However, Tristan Thompson was terrible in his return to the starting lineup at center. He finished with 19 minutes of play bt only one point, no rebounds and only one block. JR Smith finished with 11 points and Dwyane Wade returned to the bench and scored six points in 24 minutes.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are clearly trying to find their comfort level [VIDEO] as a team. However, LeBron James has always been a unique player in that he has never cared about regular season games and feels that as long as they play well enough to make the playoffs, they can win through and make it to the NBA Finals.
