LeBron James may actually be human, after all. James has been dealing with back spasms and back soreness this season. He had a back wrap on for portions of the Los Angles Clippers game earlier this week.
LeBron says his lower back locked up on him a bit during the 1st quarter tonight but heating pads got him through okay

“I’m doing everything I can to get back to my normal self,” James said after the game. “I’ve had a history of [back issues], but I always keep a good eye on it.”
Not good. But not terrible. James, who is certainly very in tune with his freakish body, will know how to handle it. Easy does it, right? Especially this early in the season. This is not the first time James has dealt with some back issues.

If James needs to take some nights off, I’m okay with it. Even if the national media jumps on the “Is This the Decline of LeBron” roller coaster. For me, I would rather deal with that storm rather than if it happened in the playoffs.
Maybe I’m looking too much into the future, but it doesn’t hurt. James’ back does, evidently. Though, hopefully, not for long.
