Joining Colin Cowherd, Chris Broussard delves deep into the psyche of LeBron James and reveals why LeBron leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers to go to Los Angeles or New York would never happen if his former teammate and current Boston Celtics PG Kyrie Irving leads the Boston Celtics to an Eastern Conference Finals victory over The King's Cavs.

COLIN COWHERD: Let's just say Isaiah Thomas comes back. He never gets to 100%, and it's clunky, the chemistry's not great, that LeBron doesn't quite know how to use a 5' 8" guy who's a scorer. And they lose to Boston and Kyrie. You have a belief here?

CHRIS BROUSSARD: Well, first of all, whether Isaiah was just not himself or 100%, whatever the case, if Cleveland loses to Boston, and Boston goes to the finals, the summer is not gonna be as exciting because LeBron James can't leave. You can't go to LA. You can't go to New York. You can't go to Houston, San-- If Boston beats you, and you're LeBron James, you have got to stay in Cleveland because it will look like a 6' 2" point guard who ran away from you, was your teammate, ran you out of the Eastern Conference.


CHRIS BROUSSARD: Or ran you to a 7' 3" unicorn, to use Kevin Durant's word, to help you beat him. Or ran you to James Harden and Chris Paul, or wherever you might go. It will look like you are running away to-- I need help to beat 6' 2" Kyrie Irving, who used to be my Robin, my sidekick.


CHRIS BROUSSARD: Yeah you can't-- it's one thing to go get help to beat the big three-- Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce-- or to beat Golden State now. But Boston? With Jayson Tatum and Jalen Brown? No! You cannot leave. And even if that's not the reason-- even if it's hey, I just want to be in LA. Hey, I want to see if I can win a championship in New York. No! Because I am not in this group, but there are those that still think he took the easy way out on going to Miami.


CHRIS BROUSSARD: I don't think you're in that group, either.

COLIN COWHERD: No, no, no, no.

CHRIS BROUSSARD: There are those who say, yeah, you went to Cleveland, but they had Kyrie. Kevin Love-- you traded for him. You had two all-stars with you. This would be the kicker, in my opinion, for those people that feel that way to say, you had to run to get help to beat Kyrie?
