New Cleveland Cavs coach Tyronn Lue didn’t waste any time standing up to LeBron James.

James had the Cavs skipping the pregame introductions with the starters staying near the bench. Lue put an end to that Saturday night in his debut.

"You can do what you want on the road because we don’t care about the fans on the road, but at least at home, give our fans what they came to see," Lue said.

James said he didn’t have a problem with Lue’s decision.

"That’s what the coach wants and that’s what we’re doing," he said. "There’s no fighting, ifs, ands or buts."
