The biggest news of the NBA's offseason involved superstar LeBron James deciding to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second time in his career. This time, he was leaving them after helping the city achieve an NBA title. However, once LeBron left the Cavs, it left a collection of players who are good, but not nearly the team that they were with King James leading them. Recently, the Cavs' Kyle Korver spoke about that aspect of how different things were then and now.

Korver on Cavs' with and without James

With LeBron choosing the Los Angeles Lakers, it left behind a collection of younger talents, rookies, and veteran teammates.

That includes All-Star Kevin Love and sharpshooter Kyle Korver. The latter of these players is familiar with playing on a number of teams, both good and bad. Korver spent time playing for the Philadelphia 76ers, Utah Jazz, Chicago Bulls, and Atlanta Hawks ahead of his arrival to the Cleveland Cavs in the 2016-17 season.

That gave Korver just a few seasons playing as LeBron's teammate. There weren't any titles in the cards, though. LeBron left, a new rookie was installed, and head coach Tyronn Lue was fired from the helm. With all those changes, Korver spoke to's Steve Aschburner about how life has been then versus now.

Korver told Aschburner that "LeBron carries a certain weight" and that his "magnetic personality" combined with being an "incredible basketball player" makes people follow him. He also said LeBron was performing that role for a number of years in Cleveland, but not now. Now, the Cleveland Cavs are struggling with the "weight" and "leadership" of LeBron taken away.

Korver suggests what Cavs need

Since Korver has been in the league since 2003, he realizes that teams rely on those special leaders to bring them to wins, the postseason, and potentially, NBA titles. He mentioned that the Cavs' new goal in these struggles is to find new leadership.

Korver suggested it's "an adjustment period for us all" and the Cavs players will try to find their way.

However, Korver was realistic in that assessment saying it takes time. Replacing a leader like LeBron is nearly impossible, though. Still, time can help the Cavs turn their losing ways around.

The unfortunate thing for Kyle Korver is that after 15 years in the league, that aspect is a bit less on his side. Time is running out for Korver to finally win an NBA ring. However, depending on how close he and LeBron are, he may be able to convince a certain someone to add him to the Los Angeles Lakers roster. There are even rumors that he could join the Philadelphia 76ers.

Speaking of that, the Los Angeles Lakers are now benefitting from LeBron James' magnetic personality and basketball skills. LeBron is a vocal leader unafraid to speak about anything, whether it's a Jimmy Butler trade, or the state of his team. The good news is that they've finally turned the corner to a winning record, but with a lot of the NBA season left, he'll look to inspire and motivate his new Lakers' teammates toward success.
