It's the second Finals sweep of James' career, the first coming with the Cavaliers in 2007 against the San Antonio Spurs (also the most recent year any team was swept in the Finals). His eighth straight appearance didn't go well either, and now there's uncertainty where the superstar will play next.

LeBron James played the last three games of the NBA Finals with a severe right hand injury. He leaned back and slumped in his seat, the towel still covering his head, and sat that way for several minutes.

After Game 4, James said the injury was "self-inflicted" and occurred because he was emotional after the Cavs lost the close game. "I had emotions that you just don't get an opportunity like this on the road against Golden State to be able to get a Game 1".

Act IV between the Warriors and Cavs featured a drama-filled and controversial Game 1.

The Warriors blocked 13 shots in the game, with Curry and Durant joining Green with three apiece.

And they may stay that way.

So LeBron can leave now, knowing that he lifted the Cleveland Curse in 2016 by teaming with Irving to lead the Cavaliers to the first resurrection from a 3-1 finals deficit in league history.

By the start of the fourth, the only question was whether Curry would win his first NBA Finals MVP or if it would go to Durant for the second year in a row. So numerous Warriors' comically open looks are the result of Curry's gravity, and those stats aren't quite as easy to measure as points per game or field-goal percentage.

The cause: He punched something after Game 1 of the finals, his frustration having obviously boiled way over when the Cleveland Cavaliers let the series opener against the Golden State Warriors get away amid late-game miscues and one overturned call that left him seething.

Curry said after the win that the team used its experience in Game 4 against the Cavaliers past year - also down 3-0 to the Warriors, they won by 19 to force one more game - to prepare, knowing they'd face a focused opponent.

He can opt out of his contract and become a free agent next month.

Asked if he had played his last game for the Cavs, he told reporters at a post-match press conference: "I have no idea at this point".

'The only thing is with my kids getting older, that's the only thing that kind of stops me from going as long as I'd like to, ' he said. "Sitting down and considering everything, my family is a huge part of what I decide to do". He had 23 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds, which isn't bad when you consider he was playing with only one hand.

Right now, Golden State is on another tier and with Durant expected to re-sign with them in weeks and Curry, Thompson, Green and the rest still young and hungry, their reign could last much longer. On the night, the nine-time All-Star finished with 20 points on 7-for-17 shooting, leading both teams with 12 boards, 10 assists, a steal and three blocked shots.

Cleveland's task is now as daunting as it gets: No team in National Basketball Association history has overcome a 3-0 series deficit, though it's happened four times in the NHL and once in Major League Baseball.

The one variable that could potentially change all of this, though, is James's family.

"They have five guys on the floor that can dribble, pass and shoot", said Cavs coach Tyronn Lue.
