WHERE ARE THEY NOW? LeBron James' teammates from his first stint with the Cavaliers

LeBron James was not surrounded by All-Stars during his first tenure in Cleveland.

Until he got to Miami, the best players he ever played with were Larry Hughes, Mo Williams, and Carlos Boozer (for one year).

15 years into his historic career, James has quite a different supporting cast surrounding his attempt at an eighth straight appearance in the NBA Finals, while his teammates from his first stint in Cleveland have gone on the next chapters of their lives.

Take a look at what LeBron's earliest teammates are up to today.
