James has been in the finals every year since 2011 - four with Miami, and now four straight with Cleveland. Love banged heads with Boston rookie Jayson Tatum in the first quarter of Game 6 and did not play again.
Meanwhile, Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets are also deadlocked after six matches - but which outfit are favourites to be crowned NBA Champions.
Take a look through the gallery above to see the latest NBA Championship odds.
Tatum had a dunk over James with 6:41 left - and stared down the Cavaliers star and bumped him with his chest - and then followed it with a three-pointer that gave the Celtics a 72-71 lead. The Cavaliers were probably far better previous year and could only get a game from the Warriors. A Game 7 loss to the Boston Celtics playing without both Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward might have made his decision easier.
"I mean, the bigger the stage, the bigger the player, and he's been doing it for us since we've been here", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said.
Although the Celtics were playing on their home court, they had less pressure on them in the grand scheme of things. He's the first player with at least 35 points, 15 boards, and five assists against the Celtics in the playoffs since... himself, in 2012.
Dating to last summer - when successful general manager David Griffin departed, Kyrie Irving demanded a trade and the Cavs did a deal that returned a future draft pick and an injured replacement in Isaiah Thomas - it has been one long struggle for James to earn the right to play in his eighth consecutive Finals. And I feel, knowing each one of the players, I do think it will propel them. The Celts jumped out to a 12-point second-quarter lead but by halftime James finally started getting a bit of help from wildly inconsistent spare parts like Jeff Green (19 points) and Tristan Thompson (10 points, 9 boards).

The previous record holder was Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End , which made $13.2 million on the same occasion in 2007. The " Logan " director's take on the bounty hunter could be a more ambitious and open-ended outing than 'Solo '.
But the present still belongs to James.
With Love out, expect the Cavaliers to play with a smaller, yet quicker lineup.
James turned in a monster performance earlier in this postseason.
Al Horford finished with 17 points and Jaylen Brown had 13 but he was just three-of-12 from the three-point line.
The Celtics are 10-0 at home this postseason, and are actually 2.5-point favorites heading into Game 7.
