The Cleveland Cavaliers are the defending NBA champions and have won seven straight postseason games this year, something that has LeBron James wondering what he has left to prove to anyone about his abilities as a professional basketball player.
It feels like this postseason has been a bit of a breakthrough for LeBron and the Cavaliers after slogging through a regular season as champions that seemed disinterested and sloppy. But all that’s gone now. James and the Cavaliers are easily handling the Eastern Conference and are on the verge of cruising into the conference finals.
James was honest with the media after a Game 3 win on Friday night, openly asking what more the 3-time NBA champion needs to accomplish after 14 seasons.
“What else do I have to prove?” he asked according to Cleveland.com. “Seriously, what else would I have [to do] I’ve won championships, I won my first one and I’ve won for my teammates, I came home and won. There isn’t anything I have left to prove.”
