#Cleveland Cavaliers and #LeBron James suffered a disappointing loss against the Orlando Magic in their third game of the regular season. Led by Nikola Vucevic and his amazing all-around performance, the Magic blew the reigning Eastern Conference champions out by 21 points. The Cavaliers knew something had to be changed, and they decided to make a few changes before it gets too late.

Dwyane Wade, who had a horrible 5-point game against the Magic, was moved to the bench. Instead, the Cavaliers used J.R. Smith in the starting lineup. However, with Isaiah Thomas and Derrick Rose out, Cleveland needed a reliable point guard to run the floor.

LeBron James, who is a small forward [VIDEO], decided to run his team's offense, and it worked very well. Cleveland Cavaliers won their third game and James once again showed us how amazing he truly is.

LeBron as a point guard

During his four-year tenure with the Miami Heat, LeBron James was frequently used as a point forward. Despite his size and weight, James is very athletic and his amazing passing skills allow him to be one of the best players in the league. After his return to Cleveland, it was Kyrie Irving who was the team's primary playmaker. However, it's time for a change now when Irving is gone.

In his amazing performance against the Bulls last night, the four-time MVP scored 34 points and dished out 13 assists. Furthermore, he only had two turnovers, which is another proof of how great his playmaking ability is.

According to ESPN, James is the only active player in the league who recorded 20 points and 10 assists from four different positions. The Cleveland Cavaliers forward has yet to achieve this feat while playing as a center, but considering that he is capable of playing this position, it won't be surprising if he does achieve it.

James explains his ability to play every position

"I think the best thing for me personally is ever since I was a kid I've always learned every position on the floor," LeBron explained. He added how, when he was learning to play basketball, he could learn every position on the floor, all at one time. "And know all the plays, what they're doing and what's the reads."

The Cavaliers superstar also said that he knows every set, so no matter where the coach puts him, he knows what to do. "I know every single play in every single position so it makes the job a lot easier for me because I know where I should be and what my teammates should do," James said.

There is no doubt that LeBron James is a unique player and that we are witnessing something special. Perhaps the most amazing thing about him is that he will soon be 33, yet he's not showing any signs of slowing down.
