LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers were dispatched by the Golden State Warriors in just four games. The Warriors walked out with their third title in four years, only broken up by a tremendous comeback by the Cavs in 2016.

After the final whistle in Game 4, LeBron showed up to his postgame press conference with a soft cast on his hand. Much was made of that, but there is perhaps a bigger story developing.

Where was LeBron before the Finals kicked off?

According to a report from the Palm Beach Post, James visited friends Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem in Miami.

“Right before they started the Finals against Golden State, I spent some time with Bron. He was in Miami. Me, him and Dwyane got together and we spent some time together and we just chopped it up and we just talked.”

Haslem said the trio didn't go into detail about LeBron's impending free agency, because he was focused on the series against the Warriors.

Miami is seen as one of the team's in contention to land the league's best player, so this only adds fuel to the free agency fire.

Will LeBron reunite with Dwyane Wade and Pat Riley in South Beach?
