LeBron James carving out own legacy with Cleveland Cavaliers, in National Basketball Association history

LeBron James carving out own legacy with Cleveland Cavaliers, in National Basketball Association history

In this January 18, 2016, file photo, Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry (30) knocks the ball loose from Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James (23) during the first half of an NBA basketball game in Cleveland.

James' fouls were merely part of a disastrous first half for the Cavs, who committed nine turnovers that led to 13 points for the Celtics.

James played in his 212th career postseason game on Thursday night, when the Cavaliers beat the Celtics 135-102 in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals to advance to the NBA Finals. But on the eve of the postseason, his sister died in a auto accident in Washington state.

NBA fans have been waiting 11th months for the third installment of Golden State and Cleveland in the Finals, and we should be treated to some excellent basketball. He spent almost 10 hours in the dentist chair over the next two days, then went out and put up 53 points.

Thomas injured the hip in March and aggravated it in the second-round series against Washington.

There's also the irony that Brown, the first coach who took James to an NBA Finals in 2007 — Cleveland was swept by San Antonio — will now coach against him, likely in the same leading role he's had for Golden State since head coach Steve Kerr was forced to take a break because of continued problems with his surgically repaired back.

Although when it comes to the conflict in Ukraine it seems that we were on the same line", Mr. From 2ndL, Belgium's King Philippe, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, U.S.

After the team returned from Boston in the wee hours Friday morning, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue didn't go to bed and immediately began working on a game plan to stifle Golden State's powerful, multi-faceted offense. That will take about 4-6 weeks.

"If he feels better and we have to make those decisions, we will, but right now we're not putting any deadlines on should he feel better what will we do", Myers said.

"It was taken, they took it", Green said.

Just don't try to tell them that. "Hopefully I don't have to have surgery, but I know that is an option".

"I wear the number because of Mike", James said.

"No matter what happens, let's make sure I come back even better".

When LeBron left the Cavaliers in the summer of 2010, the Cavaliers were still a year away from winning the 2011 NBA Draft lottery.

Kevin Durant is the most important player in this series. Whether that deal will come from the Celtics is the big question, as the C's own the No. 1 overall pick and a plethora of young guards already on their roster.

But the Celtics have the No. 1 pick in the draft, along with the salary cap space to sign a top free agent.

Thomas hopes to continue his career in Boston, but understands the business side of the National Basketball Association.

And then, nearly as if he was trying to remind himself that he's got three championship rings and is frightful in his own right, James recalled other fearsome postseason opponents - San Antonio and Boston. You just looked at him like, 'How did you finish that shot?' Taking it up, moving so much and getting the contact. "This city, this organization".
