No expectation within Heat organization that LeBron James will return

Grant SmithJun 10, 2018

With LeBron's Cavs down 3-0 in the NBA Finals for the second year in a row against the Golden State Warriors, James' impending free agency decision has begun to heat up, as it looks like another disappointing end to the season for LeBron and Cleveland. "I've been told that that's not a realistic option". No, I don't know. Obviously, we all knew their talent, but I knew their minds as well.

"Kind of like what Golden State did - KD went there".

Has played for the USA national team in the 2004, 2008, and 2012 Olympics. Is this a signal the books think LeBron could be headed to Philadelphia?

The Knicks, of course, were mentioned on Irving's list of preferred trade destinations when the 26-year-old guard first grew exhausted of riding as LeBron's sidekick and ultimately demanded a move out of Cleveland. First, it would take quite a bit of work for the Warriors to make the necessary cap room to sign James.

James scored 51 points in the game, going 7 of 16 from the field on shots from 10 feet and out in Game 1. So with the National Basketball Association season officially in the books following the sweep by the Warriors over the Cavaliers, here are three reasons why the James to Philadelphia rumors are about to heat up moving forward.

"I think they're scared", Mannix said. Just Golden State with, like, a hundred superheroes and then Houston with a hundred superheroes and they fight. Kerr, who won five titles playing with the Jordan-era Bulls and the Duncan-era Spurs, and who led the league in three-point percentage twice, said he doesn't think he ever saw someone make a 30-foot shot in a game in his five Finals.

But if James leaves this summer, the situation is particularly bleak for the Cavs because of the way they built the team around James. Hey - more pressure on the Warriors to close out the series, we say.

Cavs center Tristan Thompson cited "some mental collapses in the fourth quarter" of Wednesday's 110-102 home loss that put the Cavs on the brink of elimination. Finally, it is unclear where the Celtics stand on James. "Whether our guys are worn out or whatever, you've still got to keep the brain working and you have to dig deep", Thompson said. Wendell Carter another guy the Celtics may want, but ultimately they should re-sign Baynes for his championship experience and veteran presence on the team. "Whether you live up to it or not, you've got to be OK with your effort and your intensity and whatnot and the result of the game", Curry said.
