LeBron James News

LeBron James    F  Cavaliers

 

 

LeBron James was "surprised" by the Cavaliers decision to part ways with GM David Griffin according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst. Other reports have also indicated that James is disappointed, especially considering he advocated for a Griffin extension. It's a puzzling move by owner Dan Gilbert to go against James' wishes, and it should be noted that there are several reports that LeBron could move out of Cleveland when he hits free agency in 2018. The Cavs are hoping to bring in Chauncey Billups to replace Griffin, but assistant GM Koby Altman will handle trade calls in the meantime -- the Cavs have been linked to Paul George and Jimmy Butler and are reportedly shopping Kevin Love, Iman Shumpert and Channing Frye.

Adrian Wojnarowksi of The Vertical believes that LeBron James could leave the Cavaliers in 2018. "Not only is there no guarantee he’s coming back, I’m not sure there’s an expectation he’s re-signing there," Wojnarowski said. "I think they feel, I think within Cleveland and around the league, they feel that he’s very much in play to leave again and likely head out West to one of the two L.A. teams. The Lakers could very well be a target." Woj mentions the Lakers, Clippers and Heat as potential destinations, and he added that LeBron's title with Cleveland last year means he's "liberated to leave again." LeBron has one year left on his deal with a player option for a second, but the Cavs certainly have a reason to be nervous.

LeBron James' 41 points weren't enough as the Cavaliers fell to the Warriors 4-1 in the NBA Finals following a 129-120 Game 5 loss. LeBron grabbed 13 rebounds with eight assists, two steals, one block and two treys in 46 minutes, becoming the first player ever to average a triple-double in the NBA Finals. LeBron was absolutely phenomenal in this series, but he and Kyrie Irving both ran out of gas late and had a few defensive lapses in the fourth quarter. LeBron is under contract for one more season with a player option for the second, so don't buy into the rumors about a potential move away from Cleveland. Expect the Cavaliers to be linked to some high-profile names this summer and keep in mind that LeBron is still the best recruiter in the league.

LeBron James scored 31 points during a season-saving 137-116 win during Game 4 on Friday, adding 10 rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and three 3-pointers. The Cavs went berserk in the first half with an NBA Finals record 86 points before the break. James also set a record with his ninth triple-double in the NBA Finals, and he posted another record for his third Finals triple-double in an elimination game. James also moved past Michael Jordan for third all time for points scored in the NBA Finals. He and Kevin Durant also received double-technicals in what was the most intense NBA game in some time. The Cavs came back from 3-1 last year, but it won't be easy to do it again this year.

LeBron James finished Wednesday's Game 3 defeat with 39 points (15-of-27 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), 11 rebounds, nine assists, four 3-pointers, one steal and one block in 46 minutes. Tyronn Lue was asked before the game whether LeBron could spend extended minutes checking Kevin Durant defensively, while also carrying the load on offense. "Yes he can, that's why he's the best player in the world," Lue replied. LBJ opened the game 10-of-11 from the field and his performance on both ends can't be faulted, but the Cavs came up empty down the stretch tonight, making Friday's game a must-win for Cleveland.

LeBron James had a phenomenal game on Sunday with 29 points, 14 assists, 11 rebounds, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes during a Game 2 loss in Oracle Arena. LeBron relentlessly attacked the rim early and he dished out 10 assists in the first half, the only time that's happened in the Finals in at least 20 years. He also tied Magic Johnson for the most triple-doubles in NBA Finals history (eight). James will need to continue playing at this level for the Cavs to climb back from an 0-2 deficit against the high-powered Warriors, with the series shifting to Cleveland for Game 3 on Wednesday.
