It’s the question of the summer, and LeBron James is not ready to answer if he has played his last game as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“I have no idea at this point,” James said following the Cavs’ 108-85 loss to the Golden State Warriors in Game 4 of the Finals on Friday.
The Warriors defeated the Cavs a second straight season for their second consecutive title.
“The one thing I’ve always done is consider my family,” James said. “Especially with my boys are in terms of their age. They were a lot younger the last time I made a decision like this four years ago. I got a teenage boy, a preteen, a little girl that wasn’t around (last time) as well.
“So sitting down and considering everything … my family is a huge part of whatever I decide to do in my career. They will continue to be. I don’t have an answer for you right now as far as that.”
James is expected to opt out of his contract and become an unrestricted free agent, allowing him to sign with any team.
As has been the case during his previous two free-agent summers (2010 and 2014), he is not expected to make his next destination known until sometime around mid-July.
He has made eight consecutive trips to the Finals — four with the Miami Heat and four more with the Cavs. He has made nine appearances overall, sporting a record of 3-6, including 1-4 with the Cavs.
James averaged 34.0 points, 9.1 rebounds and 9.0 assists during the 2018 postseason.
