CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James is showing his sensitive side by admitting he cries during some movies and apologizing to his wife for sometimes losing sight of his family's role in his quest for greatness.
LeBron said "real men cry" on Sunday's episode of the Road Trippin' podcast hosted by teammates Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye and reporter Allie Clifton.
James said he cried watching "The Lion King" and an episode of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" when Will Smith's father arrives to take part in his son's life but then leaves. James says he never saw his own father.
The four-time MVP also discussed his obsession with greatness, saying he told his wife that "I've at times lost the fact of how important you are to this whole thing."
Ill coach Lue misses Monday's game
Still missing a few key players, the defending NBA champions are also now down a coach.
Cleveland's Tyronn Lue missed Monday's game against Miami with an unspecified illness. The second-year coach has been battling a bug for most of the week and will stay home and rest while the Cavaliers host the Heat.
Lue skipped the team's morning shootaround for the second time in a few days. He called assistant coach Larry Drew a few hours later to inform him that he would not make the game. Drew said the team does not have a diagnosis for Lue.
Drew, who previously coached Atlanta and Milwaukee, will take over Lue's head coaching duties.
During the team's visit to Atlanta on Friday, Lue said he never wants to miss any time if he can help it.
"I want to be here to support the guys and if I can't go, I can't go," he said. "I've full confidence in Larry Drew and Jim Boylan, those guys, and (Mike) Longabardi to take over, but I'm always going to try to give it everything I've got to make it."
Drew said he wasn't sure how much he would play newly signed center Andrew Bogut, who signed with Cleveland last week.
Lue is in his first full season as Cleveland's coach. He took over when David Blatt was fired midway through last season and guided the Cavs to the NBA title.
At 42-19, the Cavs entered Monday's game with a three-game lead over Boston for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. Cleveland has been playing without All-Star forward Kevin Love (knee surgery) and guard J.R. Smith, who has been out since undergoing thumb surgery in December.
Bogut dealing with immigration issues
Newly signed Cavaliers center Andrew Bogut didn't participate in the team's morning shootaround because of a visa issue, but he's expected to be in uniform Monday night against the Heat.
Bogut joined the defending NBA champions last week, turning down more lucrative offers to come to Cleveland.
A team spokesman said the Australian, who recently was traded by Dallas and waived by Philadelphia, was dealing with immigration issues that prevented him from being on the floor for the team's light workout.
However, the Cavs stressed the visa issue wasn't significant and was merely procedural. Bogut has a green card and the delay was due to making sure his work privileges have transferred.
The 7-foot Bogut chose to join Cleveland despite having larger offers from other teams. He'll make $385,000 for the remainder of the season.
Bogut spent four seasons with Golden State, facing the Cavaliers in the past two Finals.
Cavs Coach Tyronn Lue also skipped the shootaround as he battles a sinus infection.
While the team waits for Bogut to be cleared, injured forward Kevin Love did agility and shooting drills as he continues his recover from knee surgery. Love worked on his lateral mobility, stepping around cones while working with assistant coach James Posey and a trainer.
Love had an arthroscopic procedure done on his left knee on Feb. 15, and the Cavs estimated he would be back in six weeks.
