As it turned out the 2018 NBA Finals was hurtful for LeBron James literally. He suffered from a self-inflicted injury after Game 1.

“I let the emotions get the best of me and pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand,” LeBron James said following Friday’s Game 4 loss to the Warriors.

After the close defeat in Game 1, James punched a whiteboard in the locker room after that game. Since then he was hiding from the Warriors and the media his injury.

“For a lot of different reasons,” he said. “Understanding how important a game is on the road for our ballclub, what [winning it] would have done for us. The way we played, the calls that were made throughout the course of that game, and I had emotions that the game was taken away from us. I had emotions that you just don’t get an opportunity like this on the road against Golden State to be able to get a Game 1.”
