"I have no idea at this point", James said. "I'm happy I'm a part of this group".
"I tried to prepare the team for it, I tried to prepare myself for it, but you just can't - you can't prepare, because the exhaustion sets in, the frustration..." They are officially a dynasty, wing back-to-back titles and three out of four", one fan tweeted while another wrote, "So much unnecessary hate, but they earned everything they can enjoy now, nothing came by mistake. After bringing 12 of the same 15 players back from last year's title team this year, there is likely to be significantly more turnover this summer. Purvis Short may now serve as the Chief of Player Programs for the NBA Players Association, but that never stops him from following his former team.
"Obviously, I don't have a boxing hand", James said.
Those four Hall of Famers - the Warriors' core - will stay together, perhaps leading to bigger and better things than the incredible accomplishments they have already claimed, but Friday was the last time we'll see *this* Warriors team.
Asked if his business was finished, James called that a "trick question" but noted the victory fed his hunger for more trophy ceremonies. Using those figures as a guideline, it's fair to say that ABC/ESPN will miss out on booking as much as $50 million in ad sales revenue for each game Golden State erases from the Finals schedule.

James said his decision to bolt from the Cavs the first time was simple.
"That's how you know we're a great team, is when everybody's coming after us", Durant said. "Be the leader I know I can be for this ballclub, for this franchise every night, no matter what was going on from the outside or the inside, and be reliable every single day".
"This was the hardest year we've had of the three championships, by far", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. "He's an assassin. That was one of those assassin plays right there". "I'm going to try to hold onto it for as long as I can".
Warriors guard Klay Thompson on playing through his sore ankle: "I wouldn't miss the NBA Finals for nothing". You want me to sit it right here for you?
Dragging these Cavaliers through the Eastern Conference playoffs and returning to the NBA Finals for an eighth straight time - something no one has done since Bill Russell dominated the NBA in the 1960s - ranks as one of James's greatest accomplishments.
