As the first regular-season game with Michael Malone’s Nuggets is coming up, LeBron just gave a soft warning to the franchise for what they might witness on the field. The smile said, “So better come prepared.” It’s a daily business for the ‘King’ to silence the detractors, while still displaying a better gameplay than the entire team.
