NBA: Finals-Golden State Warriors at Cleveland Cavaliers David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

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.

James averaged 34 points per game in the series.
