LeBron James made a point before Game 3 of the NBA Finals to address Cavaliers fans, imploring them to be louder than Warriors fans were in Game 1 and Game 2.
They delivered in Game 3, creating a raucous environment in a Cleveland win.
But as the Cavaliers trailed by double digits nearly the entire fourth quarter on their way to a 21-point Game 4 loss, those fans filed for the exits.
LeBron was asked about the home crowd leaving early.
I don’t have no comment about it. I mean, I came out of the game as well early. So, we was on the same page.
Ha! That is true. LeBron left the game with 3:06 left and the Cavaliers down 19.
Many players would have said no comment and left it at that. I’ve always enjoyed LeBron’s ability to give a substantive answer – even when he tries to avoid it – to nearly any question.
