LeBron James put up a heroic performance in this year’s NBA Finals, but it wasn’t enough as the Cavs fell just two games short of the franchise’s first NBA Championship. James averaged a monsterous stat-line of 35.8 points, 13.3 rebounds, 8.8 assists, and 1.3 steals and delivered Cleveland’s first-ever Finals home victory with 40 points, 12 rebounds, eight assists, and four steals.
