James joined the Cavs as the summer's blockbuster free agent deal after leaving the Miami Heat, with the experienced frontman stating that he will be looking to serve as a figurehead in David Blatt's lineup.
"I will be the leader of the team," James said, according to The AP.
"I believe I bring leadership qualities that a lot of guys either don't want or just don't know how to do it - and I can. I can lead by example. I can lead by voice. I can lead by command and I can lead by just my presence.
"That's the most important thing for me. That's what I'm more excited about than anything."
The Cavs get their highly-anticipated campaign underway against the New York Knicks on October 30.
