The future of LeBron James could hinge on what happens in these next two games. The Cavs are down 2-0 in the Finals, but Cleveland isn’t just fighting to make this a series, they are fighting to keep LeBron James.
LeBron is now 33 years old and has proven just about all he can from an individual stand point. But if he loses another Finals, he’ll have twice as many championships lost than championships won. And that may be fine for most, but when you are trying to cement yourself as the greatest of all time, that stat will always be there and we all know the comparisons. (MJ is 6-for-6, as a reminder)
And think about it — why would LeBron, at his age and level, want to do anything else other than win titles?
LeBron and everyone knows that this Warriors team isn’t going anywhere. And it’s apparent this Cavs team is not nearly talented enough to beat the Warriors 4 times. So if the Cavs get swept does that mean we’ve seen the last of LeBron in a Cavaliers jersey? I sure think it does.
