LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers got swept out of the 2018 NBA Finals by the Golden State Warriors, ending their season and hopes for a championship. In the press conference following Game 4, James claimed that he had been playing the last three contests with a “broken hand” which was self-inflicted out of frustration after the Cavaliers’ Game 1 loss.
LeBron James on his right hand injury: "Self-inflicted. Post-game, after Game 1. Very emotional... the way we played, the calls that were made, I had emotions that the game was taken away from us.. Pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand."— Ben Golliver (@BenGolliver) June 9, 2018
James averaged 34 points per game in the series.
