Philadelphia 76ers: Wentz and Ertz attempt to lure LeBron James to Philly

And if Durant going to Golden State hasn't been great for league-wide parity, it has quite obviously been great for the Warriors. The Cavaliers' deficit ballooned from nine points at halftime to 21, 86-65, headed to the final quarter of their season. Known as "Wilt the Stilt", the athletic, 7ft-1in Chamberlain led the league in scoring his first seven seasons, shattering National Basketball Association records and changing the style of play forever.

"That's probably the longest shot of it happening", Sherman said of Miami. "I thought that's what our group of guys did in the series, and that's about it". One of two game-winners, mind you. But when the third quarter arrived June 8, their effort appeared exhausted.

Snagging a 11.2 in metered market results, last night's Game 4 won Friday night for ABC but was down 11% from 2017's Game 4.

After Friday's game, he disclosed that he had seriously injured his right hand in a fit of frustration after the Cavaliers lost Game 1.

"I let the emotions get the best of me, and pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand", LeBron told reporters.

But the odds to win the 2019 NBA title posted at the Westgate sports book reflect the most likely landing spots for the four-time NBA MVP and imminent free agent.

The switch on 2018 flipped off for good in the third quarter.

Klay Thompson, who did not score in the first half, scored 10 points to lead Golden State to an 86-65 lead after three quarters. But as lethal as the Warriors offense can be, their defense exacted a death knell to the Cavaliers' season.




James finished with 23 points and spent the final minutes on the bench, contemplating what went wrong and maybe his next move.

An expectation of Warriors dominance became tangible in the third.

"If you have James Harden or you have like Kevin Durant and LeBron says, 'Hey, I wanna be a Warrior.' You're gonna pick up the phone and call: 'Hey, LeBron James said he wanted to be Warrior, [Steve] Kerr!' I'm excited to see how they come back next year", Durant said. The Warriors led by as many as 28 points, and cemented their status as a dynasty.

Citing anonymous sources, ESPN reported that James underwent two MRIs during the series and wore a soft cast when out of the public view, hiding the injury to avoid giving the Warriors an advantage. After all, they accomplished what many expected.

James was visibly upset on court after J.R. Smith's gaffe in the closing seconds of regulation in Game 1. James' reaction on the bench when he learned the Cavaliers still had a timeout after George Hill's fateful free throw attempt.

Even before the fourth game started, speculation was rife that LeBron could leave the Cavaliers for greener pastures in the next season.

The shot didn't go in.
