LeBron James Stats & Highlights From Game 3 NBA Finals 2017

It's unclear what LeBron was trying to prove this regular season, coming off a championship. He soon followed by saying that the LeBron James era has reached its end.

I just hope that we never lose focus of the brilliance we are watching in front of us at the time.

The Ringer's Bill Simmons and Kevin O'Connor discussed James' options on the Bill Simmons Podcast this week and, to be honest, some of it makes sense. "I will own a team someday", he says in an interview with The Athletic.

"Do I look exhausted?" He will have the option to play for whatever team he wants in 2018. Losing to the Warriors in the NBA Finals wouldn't be shameful, but it would make it increasingly hard for James to surpass Michael Jordan as the greatest NBA player of all time. Kyle Korver who had been brought to Cleveland to make 3-pointers, missed one. The first two games of the series have been blowouts in the second half, but hopefully we'll have ourselves a competitive rest of the game.

Green was suspended for Game 5 of the Finals a year ago after an altercation with James in which he accumulated his fourth flagrant-foul point of the playoffs, which carries an automatic one-game suspension.

It worked in 2016, as the Cavs rallied from a 3-1 deficit against the Golden State Warriors and captured the title in seven games. When LeBron James says in the Game 3 postgame news conference that Golden State has "probably the most firepower I've played against in my career", this series, to borrow from the legendary Chick Hearn, is in the refrigerator. However, it doesn't look it will be enough to knock off the Warriors going forward if they keep all of their players.

Iguodala wasn't in pain after the play, but if a roles were reversed and a Warriors player did the kicking, we could only imagine how fans would be reacting.

Or James could come to the realization that leaving Cleveland a second time would simply be one heel turn too many.

Golden State 73-9 Season versus Chicago 72-10 Season.

This is an incredibly bold statement from Pierce, as James is averaging a triple double through this point in the NBA Finals. We will find out if LeBron and Irving and the Cavs can rouse themselves and at least send the thing back to Oakland.

James made one thing clear: if he ever gets a chance to own an National Basketball Association team in the future, he will look to build his own super-team. Iguodala made one of them.
