So ... what's next?

LeBron James came home to Cleveland, delivering the Cavaliers the title they so desperately craved. You know that story.

In the wake of his hometown heroics, however, the Golden State Warriors built the most dominant team in modern NBA history. That Goliath obliterated LeBron's Cavs — and everything he had built in two short seasons back in Cleveland.

You know that story, too.

Now, LeBron faces the foreboding possibility that the Warriors will roll through him for the foreseeable future. With the Cavaliers cap-strapped, and with general manager David Griffin's contract expiring after this season, Cleveland has little avenue toward the kind of improvement necessary to challenge Golden State.
