James made it clear when he returned to Cleveland, it was to win a NBA Championship. The Cavs have made it to the finals, 2-years in a row. However, it looks like they are being out-played by the Warriors.
James is not taking control of the game in the way, only he can. He is being too cute with the ball. He is passing it too much, and he isn't scoring as many points as he is capable of.
I know LeBron wants to have his teammates shine, but it's critical for the Cavaliers to out score the Warriors. Losing game-4 on their home floor is inexcusable. Now Cleveland has to return to the Warriors home court, and we all know it won't be easy to win there.
James has got to play the kind of basketball he is capable of playing. He has to take matters into his own hands, and he has to take the ball to the hole and score more points.
If he doesn't, then James and his Cleveland Cavaliers teammates will be eliminated in game-5. It comes down to this, no team has ever come back from a 3-1 deficit. But then again, no team has ever had a hungry LeBron James on it before, while facing this challenge.
James has got to take over, and he has to do it in game-5, otherwise it's over folks.
