The Cleveland Cavaliers are struggling to start the 2017-18 NBA season. On Sunday (October 29), at the Quicken Loans Arena, LeBron James and the Cavaliers suffered their third straight defeat. It was another shocking loss since they fell to the rebuilding New York Knicks, 114-95.

When the Cleveland Cavaliers perform poorly, all the attention was on the face of the franchise, LeBron James. That was evident Sunday night with some fans voicing out their displeasure towards the Cavs and James through social media.

The Daily Mail included in a recent report tweets from a couple of Cavaliers supporters who asked James to take over in games.

They want the four-time MVP to step up his scoring even if it is still early in the regular season. In the Cavaliers' past two contests, which were losses to the New Orleans Pelicans and the New York Knicks, James failed to score at least 20 points. Against the Pelicans, he just had 18 points, while he registered only 16 versus the Knicks.

One fan labeled LeBron James "officially overrated" and a "delusional b**." Another tweet called out James and the Cavaliers for displaying unsportsmanlike conduct.

Unfazed king

Despite the losing streak, LeBron James is not worried for the Cleveland Cavaliers. As they absorbed another defeat, James again emphasized that it is a long season. "What month is this for me?

October? I’m not about to go crazy over it right now. It’s too long of a season. I’ve been a part of this way too many times," the three-time NBA champion said according to the Associated Press.

However, LeBron James addressed the Cavaliers' poor defensive effort in their previous outings. Defense is the Cavs' Achilles heel this season.

In six of their seven games, they have allowed opponents to score 100+ points. The only squad that did not reach the century mark when facing the Cavaliers was the Boston Celtics.

Homestand ends

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers will wrap up a two-game homestand on November 1. James and the Cavs are going to host Victor Oladipo and the Indiana Pacers this Wednesday.

A win over the Pacers would end the Cavaliers' losing skid and put them at .500. The Cavaliers currently hold a 3-4 record for the 10th spot in the Eastern Conference.

Once the homestand is over, LeBron James and the Cavaliers are set to head to the capital. The Washington Wizards, who are among the top three in the East, will host them on November 3.
