After famous loss in the final against Golden State Warriors where Cavaliers lost by a 108-85 Game 4 loss, LeBron James said he has “no idea at this point” whether Friday was the last game he’ll ever play with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“The one thing that I’ve always done is considered, obviously, my family,” James said after putting up 23 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds while playing through a right hand injury. “Understanding especially where my boys are at this point in their age. They were a lot younger the last time I made a decision like this four years ago.
I’ve got a teenage boy, a preteen and a little girl that wasn’t around as well. So sitting down and considering everything, my family is a huge part of whatever I’ll decide to do in my career, and it will continue to be that. So I don’t have an answer for you right now as far as that.”
Indeed, the first people James greeted when he walked off the court after Game 4 were his 13-year-old son, LeBron Jr., and 10-year-old son, Bryce, before making his way to the locker room, where he sat still, slumped in his chair with a towel over his face, in the immediate aftermath of his sixth loss in nine career trips to the NBA Finals.
