They face a 3-0 deficit, something no team has ever come back from in National Basketball Association postseason history, and to make matters worse they're up against one of the best teams in National Basketball Association history in the Golden State Warriors.

James finished with a game-high 39 points on 15 of 27 shooting to go with 11 rebounds and 9 assists in the loss.

At the 22:30 mark of "The Shop, ' James addresses his decision to return to the Cavaliers in 2014".

Sounds farfetched? Of course it does, but so did James going back home to Cleveland after four straight Finals trips and two championships, with the Heat to rejoin the Cavs after owner Dan Gilbert's scathing open letter following his departure in 2010.

James talked about just how much the letter "disrespected [his] name".

"It's more of a bigger picture and it's more of ... all these kids, all these people that need inspiration, need a way to get out".

Both the Echo and Home are not available in Singapore, and the HomePod will not be coming to the Republic any time soon as well. The " HomePod " speaker unveiled Monday is similar to devices from rivals, some of which have been on the market for years.

Apparently not everyone was "All In" on the decision by LeBron to return to Northeast Ohio. "I finally had to be like, you know what Mom, it ain't even really about that (Gilbert and letter)".

"My mom was definitely like (expletive) that, we ain't going back", LeBron explained.

His scoring average, rebounding, and three-point shooting have also risen with the progression of each series, realizing his team would need more from him as they get closer to an National Basketball Association championship. "I believe I'm that way out".

With the Cavaliers falling behind 0-3 to the Warriors in the NBA Finals, and the NBA Draft still a couple weeks away, what could spice things up around the league?

I'm here to offer a ranking, 30 to 1, of the likelihood LeBron James would choose that franchise for his final (or close to it) significant National Basketball Association contract.
