Draymond: LeBron's workload the most worrying of Cavs' 'glaring concerns'

Draymond Green sees a number of "glaring concerns" with the Cleveland Cavaliers right now, but none more concerning than LeBron James' workload.

"LeBron is playing so many minutes right now," Green told USA Today's Sam Amick.

At 32 years old and in his 15th NBA campaign, the four-time MVP is averaging a league-high 38.1 minutes per outing - the most he's played in seven years. Sure, he's one of the greatest athletes on the planet and has proven to be durable, but his age is bound to catch up with him.

"Yeah, he's super human but eventually his super-human powers go away, so that would be more of my concern if I'm a Cavs fan or somebody with the Cavs or a player, is like 'Man, he's been playing a lot of 40-minute (nights) and it's only Nov. 12," the Golden State Warriors forward said. "I don't think nobody should be playing 40 minutes a game in November.'"

Still, the Defensive Player of the Year knows better than to write off the 7-7 Cavaliers - a team his Warriors have faced in the last three NBA Finals. He said he wouldn't hit the panic button yet, noting they "know how to win." It's also very early and they're working in seven new players, not including All-Star Isaiah Thomas, who's yet to suit up for them due to a hip injury.

James is averaging 28.1 points, 8.8 assists, 7.6 rebounds, 1.3 blocks, and 1.2 steals in 14 games, but Cleveland is currently out of the playoff picture at ninth in the East and has the NBA's worst defensive rating.
