With 2 titles, Finals MVP Kevin Durant gets the last word

The Cavaliers were swept. Now, LeBron James has a decision to make. LeBron James Debuts Hand Brace After NBA Finals Loss: Fans Joke He Finally Got A ‘Supporting Cast’

This NBA season started with a sense of inevitability around Curry's Golden State Warriors, a feeling that this season was a nine-month prelude to the certainty of crowning the Warriors as champions for the third time in four years.

Three titles in four years puts Golden State in rarefied company: the 1950s Minneapolis Lakers, Boston's 1960s dynasty, the 1980s Magic Johnson "Showtime" Los Angeles Lakers in the 1980s, Michael Jordan's Bulls and the Kobe Bryant-led Lakers teams that won five titles and lost two other Finals from 2000 to 2010. But that wasn't enough to overcome the Game 1 gaffe and the powerful Warriors. However, it is a risk the Cavaliers should be willing to take to show James how badly they want to keep him on the team.

It must be noted that tip off was a little after 9 p.m. on the east coast.

On Saturday, James revealed that he played the last three games of the series with a "self-inflicted" injury to his hand, incurred after letting "the emotions get the best" of him and punching a whiteboard out of frustration following Game 1. He finished the night with 20 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. And while James said he's still unsure what he will do when he can opt out his contract and hit the free agent market this summer, the 4-time MVP provided his most thorough insight to date regarding his upcoming decision.

The Golden State Warriors are champs again.

"I've got a big smile on my face right now", Curry said.

Lue, 41, said Friday he used the toughness he relied on as an National Basketball Association point guard for 11 seasons to get through a season fraught with problems, including his own health issues.

"Most of it is not stable", Myers said.

The Lakers also have decent young players - Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, and Lonzo Ball - they could keep or move for veteran talent and Los Angeles is a flawless off-court location for James to focus on his business interests in the entertainment industry. "I don't even know how or why other than being around a lot of superstars". Like I said, when you have a goal and you're able to accomplish that goal, it actually - for me personally, it made me even more hungry to continue to try to win championships, and I still want to be in championship mode. We just won back-to-back. "I'm excited to see how they come back next year", Durant said. You don't just have to assemble a roster that can challenge Golden State, but you have to do it at close to their price. Andre Iguodala has three off the bench.

"When you make mistakes they make you pay", he said, "because they're already more talented than you are but they also have the minds behind it, too, and they also have the championship DNA".

The Houston Rockets and Philadelphia 76ers - James' two leading suitors - are next at 7-2.

James left to a standing ovation after playing 41 of the game's first 44 minutes.

Kevin Love had 13 points, while JR Smith and Rodney Hood chipped in with 10 apiece for Cleveland, which shot just 34.5 percent from the field and 8-for-27 from behind the 3-point line.
