Despite Lebron's historic postseason run, the Cavs had no shot of defeating the star-studded Warriors team. They just think that you go out, and, 'Oh, LeBron, you're bigger and faster and stronger than everybody, you should drive every single time and you should dunk every single play and you should never get exhausted, never.' Like it's a video game and you went on the options and you turned down fatigue all the way to zero and injuries all the way down to zero. But where will he go? who knows.
"I mean, I have no idea at this point", said James. "The one thing that I've always done is considered, obviously, my family". You just don't get opportunities like this against Golden State to take Game 1 and I let the emotions get the best of me. "But my family is a huge part of whatever I decide to do in my career, and they will continue to be that". "So I don't have an answer for you right now as far as that". James walked to the podium with a cast on and told reporters that he played essentially played the last three games with a broken hand.
"This is so challenging for me to sit up here and say because people who really don't know the game don't really know what I'm talking about". The injury might explain that while James was still dominant in the final three games of the series, he hadn't come close to the monster performance in Game 1, where he scored 51 points along with eight rebounds and eight assists. Will he go to the Sixers or go out West to Los Angeles?
"If the Cavaliers refused to execute a sign-and-trade and James wanted to return to South Florida, the Heat somehow would need to clear out about $55 million in cap space, while taking nothing back except cash and draft choices, in order to create the salary cap room to give James a max contract".
Lyon end talks with Liverpool over Fekir transfer
The 24-year-old Fekir reportedly had his medical with a view to a move for 65 million euros ($77 million), plus eventual bonuses. L'Equipe now claim a future deal is "unlikely" to materialise. " Liverpool's interest exists, but for now nothing is done".
Love said that if it's up to him, he'd like to remain in Cleveland, though he knows the trade rumors are about to ramp up yet again.
Cleveland can offer James more money - a five-year, US$209 million contract - than anyone else, but the larger issue is what it can do to improve a roster that's now short on title-winning performance.
With James able to opt out of the final year of his contract and no hint of whether he may stay with his hometown team or again leave the Cavaliers to pursue National Basketball Association championships with another organization in better position to compete against the Warriors, there are plenty of questions to be answered in the coming weeks. However, you have to wonder if Miami could pursue another high-level star to pair him up with.
