Cavs head into great unknown with free agency looming

Cavs head into great unknown with free agency looming

A Boston team that pushed Cleveland to seven games without its two best players is the Eastern Conference favorite for now, but a burgeoning Philadelphia roster presents a possible spot for James.

James is believed to have long desired the opportunity to team up with close friend Chris Paul, who is also scheduled to become a free agent this summer after spending the past season with the Houston Rockets. Even with him, though, Golden State needed a Game 7 comeback just to defeat the Houston Rockets on the road and reach the Finals this year, but the beat-down of Cleveland seemed to reinforce the notion for some that the National Basketball Association has lost its competitive balance.

"We put in as many teams as he could possibly go to and raised the Cavaliers, thinking he won't go there", Westgate sports book manager and National Basketball Association oddsmaker Jeff Sherman said.

Whatever is next, James said his family will play a major role.

"When you feel like you are really good at your craft, it's always great to be around other great minds and other great ballplayers", James said.

Cribbs tweeted this afternoon about the "rumor" that James is staying in Cleveland and bringing a second star in to join him.

"The one thing that I've always done is considered, obviously, my family".

Realistically, James' best chance to win another championship is elsewhere, as the Cavaliers' past two Finals trips have made plain that they were outmatched against Golden State.

The couple could be seen chatting as the event unfolded, and now, thanks to some lip readers, we know exactly what was said. Though she's only been a royal since her May 19 wedding to Prince Harry , breaking protocol is nothing new for Meghan .

After what may have been his final game with the Cavaliers, James revealed he hurt himself in a fit of frustration when punching a whiteboard following a game one overtime loss.

There has not been any previous talk about this even being a possibility this offseason as Westbrook is now set to enter the first year of the five-year, $205 million deal that he inked with the Oklahoma City Thunder. It's unclear if they can move forward together.

"I have no idea at this point", James said.

It is a tricky, treacherous domain, but one that last year established the Rockets as a contender for years to come.

The last time James left Cleveland it was because he needed a team to help him achieve greatness. But that wasn't enough to overcome the Game 1 gaffe and the powerful Warriors.

There have been nine sweeps in the NBA Finals in the past 60 years, including the 2018 Cavaliers.

There's a tug-of-war going on between James' brain and heart.

"I get asked all the time about MJ, LeBron, and it's such a hard question to ask", Kerr said, according to a USA Today report on Saturday. And that's the reason why I came here - an unselfish environment where they just care about the game.
