However, there's a case to be made that none of those seasons was quite as trying on James as what Cleveland went through in 2017-18, which led the Cavs superstar to savor the 50-win mark, if only for a moment, after putting up 26 points, 11 assists and 6 rebounds against NY. NY led by two at the half and trailed by three after three quarters before getting outscored 35-25 in the fourth. "But it's a pretty cool thing".
The Cavs led by only six with under 4 minutes left, but James found Love for a basket, then followed Clarkson's two 3-pointers with one of his own to put away the game. Under certain circumstances, the teams could face each other in Philadelphia. This team has been playing with a chip on their shoulder all season long, and if I had to play them in a seven game series I would be very nervous.
The Heat is among several teams including the Lakers, 76ers and Knicks that have been mentioned to potentially pursue James should he test free agency this offseason.

It's been a trying season for the Cavaliers, by James' standards, but it's nothing compared to the Knicks. But even though he was disappointed when James returned to Cleveland, Riley eventually felt his star forward made the right move.
The win helped the Cavs reached 50 wins for the fourth time in a row and helped LeBron set another National Basketball Association record, becoming the first player to lead a team to 10 straight division titles. They were placed by James Betschel, CEO at Global Market Partners, who said he was inspired to act by his sons. He finished with a game-high 27 points on six of 13 shooting from three. On Monday, he wore these sneakers that say "I'm King" on the heels for his return to MSG. "We've got to be smart going into the playoffs, make sure we're as close to 100 percent healthy as we can be".
"I don't think like that", James told Cleveland.com Monday (AEDT). That's what we need from him. "Him stepping up and playing the way he's played has been tremendous". James gave Kanter his answer. "I'm too much of a guy that's stuck in the moment". NY trimmed the margin to as few as four points before the Cavaliers stretched it to a dozen late in the first half before taking a 61-49 lead into halftime.
