LeBron was asked a question about his teammates, and he gave the "PC" answer, but outside of the cameras, I tend to believe these reports.

No doubt about it, LBJ is gone, gone, GONE from these Cavs next season.

LeBron James Disappointed In Tristan Thompson & Teammates: Needs Their Help – Hollywood Life

Quote:
The Cleveland Cavaliers entire 2018 NBA playoff run has been dependent on one man, LeBron James, to come through with big numbers. Now they’re on the verge of being swept out of the NBA finals by a dominant Golden State Warriors squad in a crucial game four on June 8. Bron’s had almost no help from Tristan Thompson and other teammates throughout the playoffs and desperately needs them to put up some numbers. “LeBron is disappointed and frustrated by Tristan and his Cavaliers teammates as they face and embarrassing sweep in the finals tonight,” an NBA source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

“LeBron was hoping that Tristan, or someone, anyone on the team would step up in a big way, and give him and the team the boost they so desperately need to get at least one win against Steph (Curry) and the reigning champion Warriors team. LeBron issued a challenge to the team, to do more, play harder and avoid being eliminated at home tonight. LeBron feels like he is doing everything himself, and if he could pass the ball to himself to score, he would,” our insider adds.

I know this won't happen, but it would be epic if after tonight's lost, LeBron rips off his Cavs jersey and he has his new team's jersey (the Dubs) on underneath!

Yea ha ha. Reminds me of his last game as a Cavalier first time around, as he stormed off the court he took off his Cavaliers jersey.

But Cavaliers hanging tough tonite!

I figure, maybe if he immediately says he's signing with the Dubs after the Cavs lose this year's Finals, he could get credit for 1/2 a championship?

This game's over.

It's a little sad to see the Cavs just phoning it in now. LeBron has clearly checked out mentally and physically. There was a shot of him on the bench just screaming at his teammates in anger and frustration.

It was funny to read Green mention that there was a high probability he won't stay with the Warriors if James signs with them.

Alright, let's see if LeBron takes off and throws away his Cavs jersey as he walks off the court (if they show it). That will signify for sure if he's leaving or not.

He kept his jersey on this time. No reason to be mad about him walking off though, he gave his all these playoffs.

When he was substituted off the court with something like 3 minutes left, he shook the hands of the Warriors before taking his seat, so he gets a pass from me.

Curry now has three rings, same as LeBron.

Hopefully Curry will be MVP of the finals.

Yeah, Durant has a legendary Game 3, but I hope Steph gets it too.

He should be passing him this time next year, unless they're teammates!

Maybe we can just have the NBA go on a 3 year sabbatical and give everybody 3 years off, players, coaches, employees (still get paid of course) and just hand the Dubs the next 3 NBA titles, it's just so anticlimactic at this point.
