The NBA season is in its final weeks and teams are preparing for the playoffs, and the moves they hope to make in the upcoming offseason. At this time many fans and media members tend to focus on the standings, to see what first-round playoff match-ups we will see, while also checking to see who will possibly miss the playoffs and who will sneak in. There’s always a huge battle between the 10th, 9th, 8th, 7th and sometimes 6th seeded teams in both the Eastern and Western Conference as they fight for playoff seeding with the season coming to an end.

For the Cleveland Cavaliers [VIDEO], they are reasonably comfortable in 3rd place in the Eastern Conference, although some Cavs fans are worried that they could slip all the way down to 6th with just a few losses over the next few weeks.

But if they are able to keep winning games as they have recently, they have a chance to grab the second seed. Either way, the leader of the team, King James, is not worried.

As long as he’s in the playoffs, the King’s happy

As he has heavily expressed in the past, seeding in the playoffs does not matter to King James, once he is in the playoffs and can focus on his postseason series opponent, he is ready. LeBron James [VIDEO] has won NBA championships after finishing first or second in the Eastern Conference, and made the playoffs in his earlier years with average seedings at best. But what we saw time and time again was the King performing at his best come playoff time, averaging an incredible 28.4 points, 8.9 rebounds, 6.9 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.0 blocks throughout his 12-year playoff career so far.

So when asked about the Cavaliers' current positioning in the East, and the possibility of them falling to a lower seed in the standings heading into the playoffs, LeBron had a simple response, according to Bleacher Report:

“It doesn’t matter to me if I’m a 6 seed, 3 seed, 2 seed, 8 seed. If I come into your building for a game one, it will be very challenging."

LeBron James has full confidence in himself and his team that they can get the job done, and most of the time, he has done just that.

A confident LeBron

Once again, heading into the postseason, LeBron James is playing at a high level and is very confident in his own abilities. As the new team is starting to click around him, LeBron is looking more and more ready for postseason basketball. King James has averaged 27.0 points, 9.0 assists, 8.4 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 0.9 blocks on 54.5% shooting from the field and 37.3% from downtown in 64 games this season, and with 18 games left in the campaign, he is looking to continue that heading into the playoffs. LeBron feels that he has a lot to prove this season, so he will be very determined in a few weeks come playoff time.
