LeBron James on Cavaliers fans leaving early: ‘I came out of the game as well early, so we were on the same page’

LeBron James made a point before Game 3 of the NBA Finals to address Cavaliers fans, imploring them to be louder than Warriors fans were in Game 1 and Game 2.

They delivered in Game 3, creating a raucous environment in a Cleveland win.

But as the Cavaliers trailed by double digits nearly the entire fourth quarter on their way to a 21-point Game 4 loss, those fans filed for the exits.

LeBron was asked about the home crowd leaving early.


I don’t have no comment about it. I mean, I came out of the game as well early. So, we was on the same page.

Ha! That is true. LeBron left the game with 3:06 left and the Cavaliers down 19.

Many players would have said no comment and left it at that. I’ve always enjoyed LeBron’s ability to give a substantive answer – even when he tries to avoid it – to nearly any question.
