LeBron James embraces challenges, big or small, personal or professional. They drive him, push him, make him dig deeper.
He’s about to face another daunting one. Actually, a dozen of them.
The Bulls are charging at him.
On Monday, the Cleveland Cavaliers, missing two starters, will open their best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinals against a confident and finally healthy Chicago team looking to exact some revenge on James, who has eliminated them from the NBA playoffs three times since 2010.
The Cavs, who entered the postseason as the East’s favorite to make the NBA Finals, will be without power forward Kevin Love and his 10 rebounds and floor-spacing ability for the rest of the postseason after he underwent shoulder surgery.
