His eighth straight appearance didn't go well either, and now there's uncertainty where the superstar will play next.
LeBron James says he "pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand" after injuring himself in frustration after Game 1 of the NBA Finals. In Game 3, he also notably missed a few open layups.
LeBron James sat in his locker, covered by more ice than clothing and his right hand - which he injured while punching a whiteboard following the Cavaliers' devastating Game 1 loss - wrapped.
Act IV between the Warriors and Cavs featured a drama-filled and controversial Game 1.
Golden State outscored Cleveland 25-13 in the penultimate frame after leading 61-52 at the half.
Durant, of course, has won the last two Finals MVP awards, taking the honor away from Curry with two incredible performances, including a playoff career high 43 points in Game 3 of this series.
James once again gave a heroic effort, but it was not enough to stem the overwhelming and balanced talent of Golden State, which came into the series looking for a sweep after Cleveland denied them the opportunity previous year for a flawless playoffs run.
After surviving a rougher-than-usual regular season and beating top-seeded Houston in Game 7 on the road in the West finals, the Warriors pushed aside James and joined an elite group of teams to win multiple championships in a four-year span.
Draymond Green added nine points, nine assists and three blocks in the win, which gave Golden State six all-time championships, tying Chicago for the third-most in National Basketball Association history behind Boston (17) and the Los Angeles Lakers (16).
"To be the best player in the world and to give everything you've got in your 15th season, play all 82 games and carry this team the way he did is a testament to his character", Lue said.
If James opts out of the final year of his contract, the 33-year-old will become an unrestricted free agent July 1. Green is the only visiting player to post a triple-double in the playoffs at Quicken Loans Arena, doing so in Game 6 of the 2015 finals.
"My family is a huge part of whatever I'll decide", James said. He had 23 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds, which isn't bad when you consider he was playing with only one hand.
The Warriors look very much built to last, and no matter where LeBron James goes this summer it'll probably be Golden State as the prohibitive favorites to win it all again next year.
Curry said individual accolades are "kind of a validation" but that the Warriors' title matters more.
"We want a different outcome", Warriors guard Shaun Livingston said.
Durant was voted the best player in this series - and he wants to keep growing.
They wrapped up the series easily as they claimed a 108-85 victory at Quicken Loans Arena to lift the Larry O'Brien trophy for the third time in four years. Became the ninth team to sweep the finals. "I don't think nobody is anxious about that type of stuff, I'm glad that we came out and played a great game tonight and was able to finish the series off".
It was the 28th consecutive play-off game in which he has scored at least 20 points.
After his press conference, LeBron walked out of the interview room and made a pointed turn toward Bill Russell.
Windhorst pointed to James' unwillingness to shoot from distance later in the series as evidence of how his hand injury affected his play.

The Cavaliers look like a great team when Hill is engaged, as he's the only quality two-way player on the roster besides James. Then they get on with the business of sitting by the phone hoping LeBron wants to continue that relationship.
We greatly appreciate his vital role on the board & all that he has done to help build a strong foundation for our future success. He added: "David has never wanted anything for himself that he hasn't earned, as his sole desire has always been to contribute".
