Once again we saw LeBron James do what LeBron James does, which is rise to the occasion when the game is on the line. LeBron stepped up when his team needed him most and powered the Cavaliers to another NBA Finals appearance, but will it be his last run with the Cavs?

LeBron ended the Boston Celtics run in Boston, with another stellar performance; 35 points, 15 rebounds, and 9 assists. LeBron has put out more effort than we have ever seen from him before. Basketball is a team sports, but from what we have seen from the Cavaliers thus far in these playoffs, LeBron is making this run on his own.
Besides game 1, when LeBron James scored a measly 15 points, he has dominated.
But LeBron James run with the Cavs might come to an end with their next opponent being either the Houston Rockets or the Golden State Warriors.
Golden State beat the Cavs last year in the NBA Finals in 5 games, and if we are to believe that the Kyrie-less Cavs will beat a 4 NBA All-Stars we have to be dreaming.
The other option is where the Cavs play the Houston Rockets. The last time the Rockets played in the NBA finals most of the players in the NBA were either infants or not even born.
The Rockets will be a better match-up for the Cavs. Chris Paul has never seen the NBA Finals, and the last time James Harden went to the NBA Finals was when he was the third option for the up and coming Oklahoma City Thunder. That team had Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.

Since that appearance, James Harden has become one of the best players in the world. He has lead the Houston Rockets to the Western Conference finals, and he has been without a doubt a force to be reckoned with.
But we could almost certainly say that LeBron and the Cavaliers would rather see Houston in the Finals than to see the Warriors for a 4th straight time.
