The Warriors may also need to include Klay Thompson for the potential deal to push through.

Sure, going to eight straight NBA Finals with two different teams will probably have that effect for just about anybody in the league, but will the whole league be this eager to bring him in?

With healthy, young superstars Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Dario Saric returning after a very impressive season the Sixers have a really potent core. Barely played that is. In his ninth Finals he went out with a whimper and not a bang.

James can opt out of his contract this offseason, and talk of him looking to leave his hometown team for the second time will not die down after the Cavs were swept despite him averaging 34 points, 10 assists and 8.5 rebounds in the Finals.

After four years, four Finals, and one glorious championship in 2016, he is expected to take a good, long look at his options.

So come in July it will be interesting to see where LeBron ends up next season and his decision will impact the National Basketball Association for years to come but he must do what's best for him and his family and staying in Cleveland is not what's best. "It's just the talent we have and the experience we've gained".

The best postseason and maybe the finest season LeBron James ever had, not to mention perhaps his last with the Cavaliers, ended terribly. Hence, the smattering of boos.

When three-time champion James left the game with about four minutes to play, he did so to a standing ovation from a home crowd that were chanting "M-V-P, M-V-P".

At 33, James might have played his final game for the Cavaliers. On Friday, he appeared more emotionally spent as opposed to being physically limited. The Cavaliers would come no closer in the second half.

The run certainly feels like it is over. "I hope that doesn't sound arrogant". Curry, who was terrible in Game 3, answered with a classic Steph Curry performance in the clincher. With 4.7 seconds remaining in regulation, J.R. Smith rebounded what would have been a go-ahead free throw from point guard George Hill, only to dribble out the clock seemingly unaware that the game was still tied. "Does it?" Durant said of his winning the award over Curry.

Now James, a free agent, has a hard off-season decision.

No free agents are able to reach a verbal agreement until that date. They made six 3s with two from Curry, who raced out to 12 points.

Resignation is not on Lue's mind, however, and asked in the post-game media conference if he intends to keep coaching, the 41-year-old said: "Yeah, I do". "So, I don't have an answer for you right now".
