The Cleveland Cavaliers' front office has already made it quite clear that they're ready to move on if James decides to leave the team, trading for young players in Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr and Rodney Hood amid their major roster overhaul, as well as owning the Brooklyn Nets pick. With about four games left in the regular season, it will be interesting to see how the seeding plays out.
Simmons has amassed 12 triple-doubles and has six in his past 14 games as Philadelphia made it five successive wins without All-Star centre Joel Embiid, who is recovering from a concussion and surgery to fix a fractured orbital bone.
That is a pretty impressive factoid, to say the least, especially since Simmons and the Sixers (49-30) leapfrogged James and the Cavs (49-31) in the standings to take control of the No. 3 seed in a wild Eastern Conference playoff race. John Wall didn't play in the last game against the Cavs. They have James on their side, the league's premier player who is in the midst of one of the best stretches of his career and hasn't lost an Eastern Conference playoff series since 2010.For them, they don't believe it matters where.
"It's a real feeling", Brown said. You always accept it.
J.J. Redick sank 4 of 11 3-pointers and scored 28 for Philadelphia.
He is also the only player in National Basketball Association history to amass at least 31,000 points, 8,000 rebounds and 8,000 assists.
Elsewhere, LeBron James' excellence is so taken for granted, he rarely gets a mention, but 44 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists is impossible to ignore.
LeBron James had 33 points, 14 assists and nine rebounds as the Cleveland Cavaliers prevailed in Tyronn Lue's return as coach with a 119-115 victory over the visiting Washington Wizards on Thursday at Quicken Loans Arena. "I want our guys playing with a swagger". The debate about which team gives them the lowest odds is over. James can blow past players in the halfcourt or on the fastbreak, fly well above the rim and score with the calm assurance that no one can stand in his way.
"To be honest, I have been coming here to Philly for a while, starting with A.I". "It started with A.I". The fans haven't changed.

In February, they took a 20-point lead on Miami into the fourth quarter and almost lost it after Eric Spoelstra inserted his reserves. They're riding on win streak.
"If you know the game, then everybody is accepting of that", James said. "I love talking the game, so I don't think of it being a problem at all". Bradley Beal scored 18 in the win over the Cavs and is averaging a team-high 22.7 points this season.
Simmons threw a lob pass from half court to Richaun Holmes for a high-flying dunk.
Simmons finished the first half with 13 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists.
James suddenly remembered in the second half he needed to audition his stuff for his potential summer suitor. He bullied his way to the basket or found shooters, such as Kevin Love (17 points) and Jeff Green (30 points), open on the perimeter.
To maintain the third seed, Cleveland will have to win out.
"He gets that look", Cavaliers forward Kyle Korver said.
Cleveland came back again in the fourth quarter.
