Social media sympathy & skepticism for LeBron James after NBA Finals defeat

Social media sympathy & skepticism for LeBron James after NBA Finals defeat

The Cleveland Cavaliers had what might have been the most competitive sweep in the history of the NBA Finals against one of the most incredible collections of talent the league has ever seen in the Golden State Warriors.

LeBron James played through the NBA Finals with a serious right hand injury that he sustained after Game 1, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst. It was Curry's 10th playoff game with at least 37 points; the Warriors are 9-1 in those games. - Who should have won the Finals MVP award? I think it's been our most inconsistent season. As for the speculation regarding LeBron James' future, well that really started last summer.

It must have been frustrating.

In the home locker room, this might be the final time LeBron James is at the Q in a Cavs uniform.

The vote for Finals MVP was 7-4 for Durant over Curry. "Unbelievable feeling to come in here on a mission and get the job done". I just appreciate what he's done for us this season. The team does not have much cap space to sign free agents and they lack assets for a significant trade.

Then the league's best team tightened the screws on Cleveland in the third quarter, outscoring the Cavs 25-13 and prompting Golden State fans to begin those drawn-out "War-eee-orrss" chants that provide a flawless musical accompaniment to their 3-point barrages. He needed time to digest.

"Sitting down and considering everything, but my family is a huge part of whatever I'll decide to do in my career, and it will continue to be that". Get a do-over on that suspension slip-up, and the Warriors could be talking four straight titles right now.

President Donald Trump accused Canada of burning down the White House during the War of 1812 , according to a new report . Mr Trudeau said: "American jobs are on the line because of his actions and because of his administration".

"I hope he stays".

"For me, tonight will be tough", James said. Last night's Game 4 clincher, was much more of a decimation, as the tipped faves crushed the Cavs 108-85. "We used the experience past year to our advantage", Curry said.

Cleveland fans seem to feel differently about James' possible departure this time around. In the history of the National Basketball Association, no team has survived after being down 0-3. Or because he has donated millions to send kids from his hometown of Akron to college, and in July he will be opening a public school in northeast Ohio.

If the Warriors win the championship again - and no team has blown a 3-0 series lead in the NBA Finals - then all the hiccups of the regular season will be forgotten. "Do whatever you want with your life".

He can't be guarded now - and he wants to keep growing. Not many people have left here.

And LeBron James made it clear that, after 15 seasons, he still is in what he described as "championship mode", and his decision on what route to take in free agency will be driven by the desire to surround himself with "cerebral players".
