Coming into the NBA playoffs there was no doubting that the Cleveland Cavaliers were the team favored to win it all or least make it the NBA finals by beating the best of the best in the Eastern Conference.

Much like last season though, the Cavs have failed to live up to expectations at this point as they are facing elimination in game six of their second round playoff series the defensive minded Boston Celtics. No one thought that the series with the Celtics would been easy one, but many people really couldn’t see Kevin Garnett and company getting the best of LeBron James and his boys in a seven-game series.

Despite being heavily favored coming into this series, LeBron James and company have done nothing but struggle to play consistently well not throughout this series against the Boston Celtics. There is no doubting that the Celtics are savvy veteran team, but being able to compete with the much younger Cavs team led by arguably the best player in the league is surprising to say the least.

If the Cleveland Cavaliers lose game six, their NBA championship have hopes for this season are over, but loss to the Boston Celtics on Thursday night might mean even more than that as the entire franchise might go through an extremely drastic change.

Throughout this entire NBA season, and season before that for that matter, the future of LeBron James has been unknown and speculated on. Despite the constant questions, rumors and everything else directed at Lebron, the two-time reigning NBA MVP has neglected to say anything about what he will do come July 1st when he officially becomes a free agent.

Obviously, if the Cleveland Cavaliers do lose game six, there could be dire consequences as LeBron James might be convinced that he just can’t win in Cleveland.

So not only will an NBA title slip through his fingers once again, but if King James loses game six to the Boston Celtics he may have very well played his last game as for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
