LeBron James of Cleveland Cavaliers played with significant hand injury

Fresh off Golden State's 110-102 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, LeBron James compared the Warriors to one of the defining dynasties of the past two decades - from another sport. Golden State with like 100 superheroes and then Houston with 100 superheroes and then they fight.
Going away from the suit-and-shorts outfits he wore for Game 1 and Game 2 of the NBA Finals, James arrived at Quicken Loans Arena on Wednesday sporting a tan jacket with a purple and teal zip-up hoodie underneath, camouflage trousers and purple basketball shoes.
LeBron James admitted that he misses Dwyane Wade during this year's NBA Finals. "That's just what it's coming down to".

Seems like a reasonable bet that James, long thought to be the real GM in Cleveland , didn't sign off on that particular trade. Durant did in the Cavaliers in similar fashion in Game 3 one season ago and he was even more deadly this time around.
James played with Wade for the Heat from 2010-2014, where they went to four consecutive NBA Finals and won championships in 2012 and 2013. This is a star driven league, and a core of Paul, Harden and James is all of the star power that any team could need. They just think that you go out, and, 'Oh, LeBron, you're bigger and faster and stronger than everybody, you should drive every single time and you should dunk every single play and you should never get exhausted, never.' Like it's a video game and you went on the options and you turned down fatigue all the way to zero and injuries all the way down to zero. "He'll be the biggest free agent ever in history because of how many times he hit it".
But landing in Houston would be a lot more complicated than it sounds as it would have to see the franchise go way over the luxury tax and make multiple moves to pull it off.
The Warriors lead the Finals 3-0 over the Cavs. It was a seven game series between the league's two best teams, and the victor would likely win the National Basketball Association championship due to the weaker opponents in the east.
