LeBron James "pretty much" broke hand out of frustration after Game 1

LeBron James

The 108-85 loss to the Warriors on June 8 exposed just how inferior the Cavaliers are to Golden State, and that's with James on the team. The futures of Kevin Love and head coach Tyronn Lue could be elsewhere if James leaves the wine and gold.

Even though the Cavaliers were much better than the Pacers, I still trashed-talked with my friends in hope of a Pacers win.

"To be able to be a part of a championship team two years ago with the team that we had and in the fashion that we had is something I will always remember", James said.

"K.D.'s been incredible these last two years, especially in the Finals and so deserving of back-to-back Finals MVPs", Curry said. LeBron would create a super team in Houston allow side his buddy Chris Paul and fellow most valuable player candidate James Harden. Having LeBron James back would mean they would be competing for an National Basketball Association title again next season, but it has become clear over the past two seasons that beating the stacked Warriors would require more than just having the four-time MVP in Cleveland's fold. Should the NBA Finals MVP not return though, things could get interesting in terms of James potentially joining the Warriors.

"I feel like '10 was the toughest", James said.

That brings us to the question of why we bother watching the National Basketball Association anymore if we know who is going to be the best team in conference each year, and it is for the hope and pride for our city.

I get it would be for LeBron James, but I'm not under the belief that you try to fix something that wasn't necessarily broken.

If James chooses to sign with the Warriors, and they keep their current starting lineup, then any championships they win should come with an asterisk on their resumes because the rest of the league would have no chance. I think it's more special when you do it with people who support you and love you, care about what you do as a ball player. With the third time be much like the first two?

At the moment the list of suitors is limited, but it could grow before July as teams position themselves to acquire one of the game's most transcendent forces.

In addition to the hand injury we just learned about, LeBron also took a finger in the eye from Draymond Green and played with a bloodshot left eye for most of the series.

The Cavaliers are in a bind because the players they should trade have contracts that will be hard if not impossible to peddle.

"I pride myself on standing out wherever I am", Durant added.

Utah Jazz - Donovan Mitchell became one of the most entertaining players in the league as a rookie this season, and Utah has a number of intriguing players surrounding him.
