Tonight the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors meet for Game 4 of the NBA Finals. Will it be LeBron's final game in a Cavs uniform?

The Cleveland Cavaliers are just one game away from elimination from the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors. That means LeBron James is potentially one game away from the end of his Cleveland Cavaliers career.

LeBron is easily the biggest free agent target, and any team with additional cap space will make a run at the best player in the league. Several high-profile organizations have already been named as suitors, including the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics.

However, there is another massive market that LeBron could tap into. According to former NBA player Kenyon Martin, both LeBron and Paul George will head to New York.

Here's what he had to say per WFAN:

"I think LeBron is coming to the Knicks. LeBron and Paul George. The way he approaches things, the way he wants his legacy to be ... coming to a franchise that hasn't done anything as of late. The last time they went to the Finals was '99, last time they won it was '73."

LeBron and Paul George to the Knicks? That would certainly compliment the hire of new head coach David Fizdale. The team would have to find a way to offload one of the worst contracts in NBA history in order to pull both LeBron and Paul George.

New York still owes Joakim Noah nearly $38 million over the final two years of his deal with the Knicks.
