Congrats to the Warriors, they played with more effort and the will of a championship team. "I think we love to see each other succeed".
After all, this is the team that changed the game - that, to some, ruined the game.
How many of those dynasties created a league-wide existential crisis?
Durant is one of 30 players to win the award.
The speculation over James' future has garnered plenty of attention these past few days, and Cavaliers fans wanted to give their hero a huge welcome ahead of Game 4.
Another "Summer of LeBron" could start as early as Friday night.
Get out the broom, because the Golden State Warriors just swept the Cleveland Cavaliers to win the NBA Championship!
"It's more of a relief now". I was going to go up and get the tip and tip it in. "The third year in Chicago was so hard, and we were running on fumes in the '98 Finals".
"That's a trick question at the end of the day", LeBron said, "and I'm not falling for that". I can only imagine right now.
But this team has understood, all along, that legacies are formed not in the micro, but in the macro.
After Game 4, James said the injury was "self-inflicted" and occurred because he was emotional after the Cavs lost the close game. Looking like they were in second gear for most of the season, the Warriors won perhaps the most uninspiring 58 games in National Basketball Association history, and ceded home court advantage in the Western Conference playoffs to the Houston Rockets in the process.
Despite the dumbfounding ability James has to carry his team, the Warriors are out to a three-nothing lead.
He added that all of the recent title teams with combinations of mega-stars, including his run with the Miami Heat as well as the Boston Celtics, the San Antonio Spurs and the Warriors, have found success in part due to their smarts. Even when an opponent can equal the Warriors in every other way, there is no answer for Durant. I didn't think LeBron could be swept but after 3 straight blows, I had a feeling today's game was inevitable. "You don't want to cheat the moment". "We've felt both sides of the equation, winning and losing and we're in a great position". There are bounces of the ball, plays... For two years now, there wasn't almost enough of it in Cleveland. The Warriors made a comeback. The Warriors began defense of their title as a No. 2 seed and their season was in serious jeopardy when they fell behind 3-2 to presumptive MVP James Harden and the Rockets. But from there on, Durant, Curry, Thompson, Draymond Green and the rest of this California crew showed why they're the game's gold standard. In now eight postseason meetings against the Warriors, the 15-year sharpshooter has gone just 8-for-29 from the floor, including 6-of-22 from long-range.
