“Me and T-Lue get into it at halftime,” James recalled of the gritty Game 7 battle between the Cavs and Golden State Warriors in 2016. “Yeah, me and T-Lue get into it at halftime and almost come to blows.”
James was reportedly called out by Lue throughout the game, which led to a heated exchange in the locker room at halftime.
Luckily, everything worked out for James and the Cavaliers.
The Cavs became the first team in NBA history to win a championship after being in a 3-1 hole in the NBA Finals. Furthermore, that 2015-16 Warriors squad had the best regular-season record in league history.
There’s no way the Cavs would have accomplished the feat without James. The four-time MVP put up 29.7 points, 11.3 rebounds, 8.9 assists, 2.6 steals and 2.3 blocks per game during the 2016 NBA Finals.
