Chemistry built upon a foundation of trust

A key to CLE's success this season has been the team's chemistry. According to coach Mike Brown, Cavs players began jelling in training camp, "watching 'Monday Night Football' together, hanging out after practice and at games."

As described in this story, "James likes to refer to the Cavaliers as family because 'no one is isolated from the other.'"

"I've said this many times before: Watching this team come together, watching them interact with one another, it's some unusual stuff. They've found on their own that if they can trust one another, at the end of the day, that's what helps build chemistry and that carries over to the floor."
