Lebron James Noncommittal About Return To Cleveland

Lebron James Noncommittal About Return To Cleveland

Two years, two NBA championships, two NBA Finals MVPs and nearly certainly a new contract in the next few weeks after he and the Warriors decide on the best way to proceed.

Durant scored 608 points in this year's postseason, the most ever by a Warriors player, passing Stephen Curry (594 points in 2015).

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James was understandably noncommittal about his return to the team following a loss to Golden State that clinched a second straight National Basketball Association championship for the Warriors on Friday night.

James is coming off what is arguably one of his best seasons as he averaged 27.5 points, 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists per game while also playing in all 82 regular season games.

"I'm just trying to prove to myself that I could just stay in it for the long haul, and hopefully I continue to have some success", he added.

While Cleveland were the clear underdog in the NBA Finals, they certainly had their chances, blowing a 13-point lead in Game 3 and giving away a win on the road in the opener after a disastrous final 36 seconds in regulation. There was a rare openness to Durant in his postgame remarks as he let his detractors know that whatever they said when he left Oklahoma City for Golden State didn't mean much then and means even less now. His passive play was shocking and in the decisive third quarter it was if James was saying "do you see what I have to work with?"

"We all want something that's bigger than ourselves".

What we do know is that James will have plenty of suitors at his door come July 1st.

Cleveland fans seem to feel differently about James' possible departure this time around.

There is some history motivation for next season. And the only teams to win four crowns in five years were that Boston squad and the 1950s Minneapolis Lakers in the NBA's infancy.

Strap up ladies and gentlemen, it's going to be a wild summer. "I'm happy to be part of this group". "It ultimately will come down to me".

"What we've been able to accomplish is really meaningful and something that not many players have been able to experience", said Curry.

Will the Miami Heat win James over for a second time?

Also, it's highly unlikely that the Cavaliers will consider trading LeBron James for a package centered on Hassan Whiteside.

The Warriors front office has already said that one of the top priorities this offseason is to get Kerr an extension and it's a good thing for Kerr because he said he needs it.
