Chicago, IL -

After the Heat's blowout win in game four of their Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Bulls, LeBron James talked about his elbow injury in the 2010 Eastern Conference Semifinals while playing for the Cavaliers.

James said, "I just tried to go out there and give it all you got. It sucks because you know you can play much better. You know you can do things but the injury is not allowing you to do it. It was on my shooting arm, so it was very tough."

Many Cavaliers fans say James tanked the series to make it easier for him to leave and join the Miami Heat.  He shot 11-35 in the final two games of the series against the Celtics in 2010, with the Cavaliers losing both of those games.

Despite numerous tests, the problem was never found.  James appeared to playing through some pain in the series.  At the time, James said, "It almost feels like you hit your funny bone and it kind of numbs up for a little bit."

James left the Cavaliers two months later via free agency.  He joined up with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami.
