NBA Finals Game 4 memes: Where will LeBron James play next?

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

LeBron James runs into an extended metaphor Friday against Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors during Game Four of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena on in Cleveland.

Still tired and wrestling with emotions after losing Game 3 on Wednesday night, when Kevin Durant scored 43 points and shot the Warriors within one win of their third title in four years, James pointed out Thursday what has become terrifyingly obvious: The Warriors are at another level and may be for a while.

Durant averaged 28.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game in the series.

"I let the emotions get the best of me and pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand", James said during a press conference after the Cavs' Game 4 loss to the Warriors.

The 33-year-old American, playing in his eighth consecutive finals, said he had "no idea at this point" about his future and would consider the decision with his family. 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. His 43-point, 13-rebound, 7-assist eruption in Game 3 effectively ended the series (no National Basketball Association team has come back from a 3-0 deficit) and clinched his Finals MVP for at least one voter in a 7-4 win over Steph.

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green, whose stylist selects suits for him each game night, has an outfit ready for the entire NBA Finals series.

It would have been even more fun to win more than one, but one is enough.

"It was definitely the toughest from the standpoint that it's the fourth year in a row that we've attempted to get back to The Finals", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.


That was his last finals with the Cavaliers before he left for the Miami Heat, and there's rampant speculation he could leave Cleveland again this offseason.

By Golden State standards, this ride was downright bumpy.

Durant's competition was stiff and two-pronged, between his teammate Steph Curry and opponent LeBron James.

The three-time champion revealed he had played the last three matches with a broken right hand, sustained after he scored his best play-off points haul of 51 in the opener.

"All of us together are just unselfish", said Warriors centre JaVale McGee.

"When you make mistakes they make you pay", he said, "because they're already more talented than you are but they also have the minds behind it, too, and they also have the championship DNA". The Cavaliers would end up going into a rebuild and starting things over.

Ultimately, not looking their best at times this season might make them better. I'll wake up Friday morning, I'll be locked in on the game plan and what needs to be done to help our team win.
