LeBron James is part of a very small minority right now when it comes to the Golden State Warriors.

The Cleveland Cavaliers star, along with the rest of his team's 2014-15 roster, is amongst a very limited number of people who can actually remember what it is like to beat the Bay Area team.

And, with the Warriors 24 hours away from a shot at history after a perfect 15-0 start to this season, James has had his say on the current pacesetters - hinting at one key reason for their success.

Speaking after Cavs practice today, the four-time NBA MVP first echoed the sentiments of the entire basketball community:

"They've been consistent. The most impressive thing is the way they've been playing at a high level for so long," said LeBron, via Fox Sports.

And then he pinpointed an issue so many teams, including his own Cavaliers, have run into in recent campaigns.

"I think it comes with a lot of health. They've been healthy. They've been the most healthy team I've ever seen in NBA history. And they have great talent."


James is right. Golden State has been able to stay incredibly healthy during their incredible run and, able to call upon all their top stars on a consistent basis, they've been able to translate health into wins.

Cleveland, on the other hand, has been battling injuries since the 2014 playoffs. Now, of course, James isn't saying his own team would be perfect with a clean bill of health.

He is, though, right to note just how important keeping key players out of the treatment room is to mounting a title challenge.
