Cleveland Cavaliers reveal their inner Arthur after New York Knicks win

James quickly laughed off the fallout and it seems that his team-mates are enjoying whatever the joke behind the meme was.

After turning around their early-season slump – including recovering from a 23-point deficit to win in New York on Monday – the Cavs all went a little Arthur…

First there was injured point guard Isaiah Thomas, who is close to a return to fitness…

Whatever the meaning of James’ initial Arthur post, it seems the fictional character from Elwood City has got the Cavs moving in the right direction.

Can confirm: squad MOOD 💯
