LeBron or Jordan? His Airness has the edge

The Cleveland Cavaliers avoided a sweep and denied the Golden State Warriors a flawless postseason with a 137-116 win in Game 4 of the 2017 NBA Finals.

His scoring average, rebounding, and three-point shooting have also risen with the progression of each series, realizing his team would need more from him as they get closer to an National Basketball Association championship.

Thousands of fans are expected at the home of the Golden State Warriors on Friday night, having gobbled up $20 tickets for an NBA Finals watch party at Oracle. But LeBron is one of the most cerebral athletes in history, on and off the court. He scored 39 points, with 11 rebounds and nine assists, and received a brilliant performance from Kyrie Irving in the Cavaliers' loss in Game 3 on Wednesday night. They are now 14-0 in the playoffs and have beaten the Cavs by an average of 20.5 points per game through two contests.

The Cavs came out aggressive in a must-win game against the Warriors to stay alive.

To compete with a very you know the best team ever assembled in the warriors and it's gonna it's an arms race now to establish.

While the contract has been a steal for the Warriors, it was considered risky for Golden State at the time. While the Los Angeles Clippers are also mentioned as a potential destination, the Lakers seem like the more likely landing spot.

LeBron James of the Cavaliers and Draymond Green of the Warriors are two of the personalities featured in Uninterrupted's "The Shop" video which was posted on Friday.

At one point, it was announced that Green had been given his second technical foul, and security came onto the floor to usher the volatile forward to the locker room. However, a technical assessed to him in the first half was actually called on Warriors coach Steve Kerr, leading to the confusion.

Later in the opening quarter, James broke Jordan's record for most career free throws made in the playoffs, passing Jordan's mark of 1,463.

It worked in 2016, as the Cavs rallied from a 3-1 deficit against the Golden State Warriors and captured the title in seven games.

His sheer talent and uncanny ability to hit shots at key moments have been the difference for a Warriors team that have raced to a 3-0 lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the best-of-seven NBA Finals. The previous record for a first quarter was 43 — set twice in the 1967 Finals by Philadelphia, against the San Francisco Warriors.

The series also serves as a rubber match for the teams.

But now with the Cavs staring at an 0-2 deficit against the Warriors in the NBA Finals as the series switches to Cleveland for games Wednesday and Friday, the "perfect roster" does not look so ideal. It's the first time the same two teams have met in the Finals for three consecutive years. If the Cavs get their doors blown off by the Warriors and are unable to effectively shuffle the deck this summer, their championship forecast for next year won't look any rosier than it does now.

In Games 1 and 2, James fell back to the facilitator role.

LeBron going out West and forming a best-friends superteam featuring himself, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony would be really, really fun to watch.
