Cavs Likely To Pursue Kevin Love Trade If LeBron James Leaves

  • Brian Windhorst picks the two biggest factors in LeBron's free agency decision

Realistically, James' best chance to win another championship is elsewhere, as the Cavaliers' past two Finals trips have made plain that they were outmatched against Golden State.

An overpowering Golden State Warriors squad captured a third NBA title in four seasons Friday, routing the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-85 to complete a sweep in the best-of-seven NBA Finals. Another route the Heat could take is clearing 55-60 million off it's cap space to sign James. We'll always have all the moments that happened in between the eventual conclusions of these seasons, both good and bad.

Durant is one of 30 players to win the award.

A season full of intrigue and drama - not all confined to the court - ended in familiar fashion, as the Warriors overcame the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Finals to clinch their third title in four seasons.

\Steve Kerr didn't hesitate to keep things real.

"KD has been wonderful these last two years, especially in the finals and so deserving of back-to-back finals MVPs", Curry said. Steph went out and recruited K.D.

Bryant previously earned Finals MVP honors in 2009-10 while O'Neal did so in three consecutive years from 2000-02. "Because of the course of the regular season, it was just like, I don't know".

In the game's final stage, Golden State was better, leaving James to compare his opponent to a gold standard in a different sport. LeBron James was quick to point out the differences after Wednesday's game, though both shots obviously were huge.

LeBron James Responds To Deflated Game 1 Clip
Golden State has won on Cleveland's court, including Game 3 a year ago , or closing them out to win a title in 2015's Game 6. If the Warriors bring their "B" game - as they did in Game 1 - they will fall in Cleveland .

But there is history with the Cavaliers, who won the 2016 championship with James leading the way.

However, and there's the rub, there were some differences - and we're not just talking President Donald Trump disinviting both the Warriors and the Cavs to the White House.

To which Curry said, "Amen", in so many words. "We used the experience a year ago to our advantage", Curry said.

"You're going to have some jerks call him names and then you're going to have some people that say he brought this city its first championship in forever", D'Angelo Aikens, a 38-year-old Cavaliers fan, said.

That's what it's all about, and that's what the top players understand. "It makes the environment great".

James, 33, said after the game that he had "no idea" if he had played his last game for the Cavs, with speculation that he could move on when he becomes a free agent next month.

Not wanting to give the Cavs or their fans any hope despite the fact that no team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit in the National Basketball Association playoffs, the Warriors built a nine-point halftime lead when Curry ignored a closeout by James and dropped a 3-pointer. I don't think anybody's even anxious about that type of stuff.
