The Golden State Warriors, up 3-0 in the best of seven 2018 NBA Finals, can eliminate LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers and capture the NBA championship by winning Game 4 on Friday, June 8, 2018 (6/8/18) for a sweep.
"I have no idea at this point", Le-Bron said of returning to Cleveland. The loss-James has now played in nine finals and won three-means that the debate about whether the 33-year-old is the best player of all time rages on.
Not wanting to give the Cavs or their fans any hope despite no team every having overcome a 3-0 deficit in the National Basketball Association playoffs, the Warriors built a nine-point halftime lead when Curry ignored a closeout by James and dropped a 3-pointer.
Wherever he moves, the fans and detractors will no doubt follow.

The best postseason and maybe the finest season LeBron James ever had, not to mention perhaps his last with the Cavaliers, ended terribly. The new guys who had a chance to play in the playoffs for the first time, the new guys who had a chance to experience The Finals, which you dream of doing when you're a kid.
Let's take a closer look at Golden State's Game 4 win with a deep dive into the box score. "I'm telling you what I know".
"This year was pretty insane in general with all that we went through with injuries and the struggles throughout the regular season", said Stephen Curry, who finished second in the voting to repeat victor Kevin Durant for the Finals MVP award.
Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said his team has not given up on itself. Assuming Kevin Durant re-signs and the rest of the All-Star core - Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Thompson - remain healthy, the Warriors will enter the 2018-19 season as the favorite to three-peat. I stayed the course and was able to have a pretty special year, outside of losing in the Finals. "I just appreciate what he's done for us this season". "But after a game like that, I'm not in any position to talk about that".
"We all want something that's bigger than ourselves", Durant said.
Instead, Cleveland is only left to wonder if James is a game from leaving.
