James was taken aback at the lack of professionalism he found, sources said. Players came in late and left early. They didn’t always dress appropriately. Blatt, a coach with a reputation as a tyrant in Europe, surprised James by how lax he was at times. James tried to set a tone, staying after practice and working with Jones and Miller, but watched as young players with no history of success — namely Love and Irving — didn’t follow suit.
Very good article on ESPN regarding the culture change Lebron James has tried to bring to Cleveland. This is a very good read and has some excellent thoughts you can pass on to your players. I have often prescribed to the theory that great teams are led by the best players.
