"LeBron James Poses Big Question After Epic Performance, Nuggets Advance to NBA Finals for First Time in Franchise History"
LeBron James opened up to the public earlier this month about his motivation to stay in the NBA, and on Monday night, after the Los Angeles Lakers ended their season with a heart-wrenching Game 4 loss to the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals, King James shocked the basketball world when he admitted he had a "lot to think about" when it comes to continuing his career in the league.
Nikola Jokic, the MVP of the Western Conference Finals, led the charge for the Nuggets, scoring a triple-double with 30 points, 14 rebounds, and 13 assists. Despite James' incredible performance with 40 points, 10 rebounds, and nine assists, Denver pulled out the victory to head to their first-ever NBA Finals.
"We just find a way to win the game," Jokic said. "Especially we were down 15, to come back and win the game, it was just probably happiness."
James, knowing he may have just played his last NBA game, understands what it takes to reach the pinnacle of basketball success. "I don't play for anything besides winning championships at this point in my career," he said. Now, the NBA waits with anticipation to hear his next move.
