    Good first quarter for the champs. Haven’t seen LBJ look this dejected in a long time.

    LeBron backing down Steph is hard to watch. It’s like if I was guarding him.

    Have to give the Cavs credit, they’ve taken a big punch and responded well.

    The Warriors are about to sweep LeBron. I thought he’d at least get the Cavs one.

    Imo, LBJ is the best specimen, but at this point MJ is the GOAT. Bron can only catch him if he goes and wins a couple more titles. His longevity could also come into play, I suppose. Maybe 50 years from now it’s akin to Sanders (MJ) vs Payton (LBJ) for the RB GOAT.

    Yea, I agree. LeBron honestly might be the greatest ATHLETE of all time. But MJ still the GOAT in his sport for now.

    Wouldn’t worry about Borden’s take. Like the guy, but he goes all “Get off my lawn!” when it comes to MJ/LBJ.

    Is there any stopping the GSW for the foreseeable future? As long as they keep their top four guys together, it’s going to be tough to dethrone them.

    Biggest question now is, where does LeBron play next year? Sure as hell won’t be Cleveland.

    For selfish reasons I hope the Lakers, gun to my head I would say Philly then Houston have the best chance to land him.

    Besides giving up. Idc if you are down 25. He quit. The team quit. That's pathetic to me and I actually like Lebron.

    Philly would be awesome. Would also love to see him in Minnesota. Definitely don’t wanna see him in Houston. Not a fan. LA would make very little sense, if he wants to win a championship.

    This is a good time to remind everyone that LeBron has exactly ZERO NBA Finals without a Jayhawk on his team.

    He congratulated the starters before he was subbed off for the last time.

    Unfortunately, my college football team isn’t nearly as exciting as my NFL squad or CBB team :(

    It’s obvious at this point, that LeBron needs a play along side a Jayhawk to win a NBA finals.

    Only if a team is dumb enough to offer Green or Klay a max deal (as I doubt GS will, nor should).

    Ya gotta love when people who have no clue what he is thinking make statements like these as though they are fact.

    Did you think there was a chance he'd come back to Cleveland?

    Isn't to say he'll stay, but for all we know he cares most about what his family wants and maybe they beg him to stay.

    Or, hell, maybe the Cavs can show him a plan to move their assets and get him another star here. who the hell knows (other than you)?

    I do not get this Houston idea.

    Their cap situation is no better than ours. He could only sign there for an exception. Unless some team is foolish enough to take Ryan anderson and 2 more years at $20 mil per.

    seems more likely Chris Paul would come to the Cavs which is never mentioned. why? How about Lebron is the far better player of the 2 and has ties to this community. why should Lebron go to him? How about the Cavs have far better assets for a sign and trade than Houston has?

    Lakers are certainly a possibility but still hope he wants nothing to do with Lavar Ball. They also lack the shooters needed to play with him. Philly? also possible but they better hope Embiid does not talk to Bosh or Love and ask their opinion of playing with Lebron. I doubt Embiid wants to become a stretch 5.

    Should have given Sausha Kaun the Perkins role. Damn why didn't you speak up sooner?
