"The one thing that I've always done is considered, obviously, my family", James said when asked about his upcoming free agency following the Cleveland Cavaliers' season-ending loss to the Golden State Warriors in Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

A video of him exchanging elaborate handshakes with his sons immediately after Game 4 had some fans crying foul, as did the replay of his two-handed, off-the-backboard dunk in Game 3 that he finished with such force.

The Cavaliers have the eighth pick in the draft June 21. Kevin Love may not be the marquee trade magnet that he was a few years ago but maybe he can still fetch something worthwhile over the summer. "I think I've shown this year why I will still continue to be in championship mode".

That brings us to the question of why we bother watching the National Basketball Association anymore if we know who is going to be the best team in conference each year, and it is for the hope and pride for our city.

Riley: Swapping out a top-ten pick for a quick fix to fit into LeBron's closing window would cripple the Cavs' future; and what are you getting back in return for a bloated Love contract projected to pay almost $50 million over the next two seasons? Here are some options that James could consider heading into another "Summer of LeBron". They ain't paying me enough to dictate the National Basketball Association. Kevin Durant was my answer.

Love has averaged 17.1 points and 10 rebounds a game in his four seasons with the Cavaliers.

Los Angeles has cleared enough salary-cap space to make a run at James and perhaps another star player like Paul George, who has been speculated to be headed there since his days with the Indiana Pacers. Meanwhile, the latter should be the team to beat in the East if James leaves Cleveland and Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward stay healthy. 2017 championship hats sold out fast last season.

More than anything else, the Warriors somewhat tainted Cav LeBron James rendezvous to greatness in that he might again leave the state and city of his birth. If James is having problems in Cleveland then NY would be a whole other story. There is too much dead weight on the Cavaliers, starting with J.R. Smith. Paul could have been the reason the Rockets knocked off the Warriors. After a dominate sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday - Durant brought home his second consecutive NBA title as well as NBA Finals MVP.

Riley: LeBron's legacy in Cleveland is already intact.

James didn't go into detail about how much the injury affected his play.

That said, the truth is that LeBron is one of the most celebrated superstars but also the most criticized superstars and he's held to a standard that seems to always undermine his achievements, no matter how great.
