LeBron can’t save himself, so he’ll leave Cleveland after losing NBA Finals

Golden State Warriors at Cleveland Cavaliers - 6/8/18 Free NBA Finals Game 4 Pick, Odds, and Prediction

He has taken Cleveland to the NBA Finals now five times, and this now looks certain to be his fourth loss in those. A James slam dunk capped a 14-4 Cavs run to open the second quarter, putting Cleveland ahead 39-38, but Golden State answered with a 11-4 run and stretched the half-time lead to 61-52.

James wasn't around the court for very long after the buzzer sounded and the Warriors completed a sweep of the Cavaliers.

The Warriors are better. The Cavs led briefly in the first half, but it was over shortly after halftime. "I hope he stays", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. He fights and competes to the end.

"If you can get healthy and guys are playing at the right level at the same time, then you can feel like you can beat anybody". "It's the journey that's better than the destination and I'm happy that I'm a part of this group".

It's entirely possible that James left the floor Friday night knowing he was wearing a Cavaliers uniform for the last time. He could go to Philadelphia and join an up-and-coming team, albeit one now dealing with front-office questions after the resignation of Bryan Colangelo in a Twitter-use scandal. He departed in 2010 for Miami before returning in 2014. "The one thing that I've always done in consider my family, understanding where my boys are at this age", James said in regard to his 13-year-old and 10-year-old sons. But from there on, Durant, Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and the rest of the Warriors showed why they're the game's gold standard.

And Derek Carr wants James and Paul George with the Lakers.

The Post said the hacking took place in January and February, according to USA officials speaking on the condition of anonymity. USA officials believe China has for years carried out hacking attacks on the US military, the US government and US companies.


Sure, going to eight straight NBA Finals with two different teams will probably have that effect for just about anybody in the league, but will the whole league be this eager to bring him in? "James wants reliability as much as ability".

But he's 33. Father Time is undefeated. While Cleveland has made the Finals each of the past four years, he's often had to carry the team; his 34-point scoring average in the Finals easily topped Shaquille O'Neal's record 28-point average in 1995, ESPN reported.

James could be packing up and leaving his native northeast OH once again. I don't think anybody's even anxious about that type of stuff. He has given the city so much.

What LeBron James decides to do this summer in free agency, is going to have a huge effect on the rest of the National Basketball Association.

"The bottom line is we had more talent", said Warriors coach Steve Kerr. With the draft in less than two weeks and free agency beginning on July 1st, the Cavs' front office will be under pressure to make a move or moves that would enhance their chances of keeping the league's best player in his hometown. There really isn't any in-between.
