LeBron James Will Leave Cavs, Finish Career In Los Angeles

LeBron James Will Leave Cavs, Finish Career In Los Angeles

The prodigal son returned home to deliver a championship. They face a 3-0 deficit, something no team has ever come back from in National Basketball Association postseason history, and to make matters worse they're up against one of the best teams in National Basketball Association history in the Golden State Warriors.

If you've always wondered how LeBron James felt about coming back to Cleveland despite Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert famously writing a scathing letter in Comic Sans when James took his talents to South Beach in 2010, we now have an answer. The Clippers make sense if LeBron wants to form a Banana Boat Voltron with Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, and Carmelo Anthony. But the league landscape can change quickly. If they fall short of their ultimate goal again, LeBron might look at Cleveland and see little potential for growth compared to other situations. Namely, to "win as many titles as possible".

The king of bold statements of these NBA Finals, Paul Pierce, made sure to double down on his previous pick of Kevin Durant as the best player in today's NBA.

A bold statement given James' monstrous numbers this postseason and the eye-gouging triple-double production in the NBA Finals, averaging 32 points, 12.3 rebounds, 10.3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.3 blocks through three games and 41.7 minutes per game.

Those rumors are based on whispers from league sources, which ultimately mean nothing, but indicate that teams suddenly feel as though there is a non-zero chance that James at least entertains the idea of leaving Cleveland again in 2018.
