The Cavaliers couldn't pull it off, but LeBron James was an absolute dynamo throughout all 6 games of Cleveland's Finals loss to the Warriors. After giving Stephen Curry a congratulatory hug, LeBron exited the court to "M-V-P!" adulation of his own, exiting the game a few seconds early:

There's a real case for LeBron to be Finals MVP even in defeat, but he doesn't want that anyway. He'll still go home knowing his home fans appreciate the way he put a gravely shorthanded team on his back throughout the postseason.
