LeBron James was asked if the Cleveland Cavaliers’ position trailing the Golden State Warriors 0-2 in The Finals feels like territory he’s accustomed to.
The Cavaliers were down 0-2 last season and then won four out of five games.
“Yeah, it’s something I am accustomed to. It’s something that I feel like is — that it’s okay for me to kind of always go back and know that I can refocus,” said James. “I can get my guys ready, get myself ready. But you hate to continue to put yourself in these positions, but at the end of the day it’s still just basketball, man, and that’s what gives me comfortable and I’m more comfortable about it because it’s just a game. I prepare myself, I’m going to go out and do my job and live with the results.
James said he can’t remember how the Cavaliers felt down 0-2 in 2016.
“I don’t know, I don’t remember how I felt last year being down 2-0,” said James. “That’s last year and I don’t even know the feeling anymore. So just mentally I’m just mentally strengthening my mind and getting my mind ready and focused on what tomorrow’s going to bring, and so I look forward to it.”
