    Letís not get carried away; HOU probably beats GSW if Paul doesnít hurt his hammy. And, if not for a terrible coach in Liu, some awful officiating, and pathetic play from Korver and Hill, even CLE (as ďweakĒ and inexperienced as their roster is) is a butt hairís breadth away from leading 2-1 in this series).

    Perhaps this is bc of a lack of focus from Warriors... still, AI, Livingston, and their bigs are in their last legs...

    If LeBron goes to HOU, Warriors have no chance. Heck, Warriors probably lose to BOS next year or PHI (if LJ goes there).

    I hope youíre right because Iím already bored with GS in the KD era.

    Later for Houston Rockets .. CP3 will always get injured in the middle of a playoff series Ö. next season Boston having a healthy (Kyrie/Hayward/Smart/Horford/Brown/and Tatum) when the playoff arrive will stop GS Warriors from getting another championship. Unless Lebron's offseason DECISION is signing with Philly !!!

    Then again... they could sign the next big fish (somehow finding even more money) and just win another 3 titles.

    Still, I think they just made LeBron go create another mega team.... and BOS is close to that next year too.

    At first I was happy we didn't trade Melo to the Rockets for Anderson .. Butt if a few teams gets Kanter and Quinn camps to have both opt out in offseason for us to have a different starter/backup center next season .. making the Knicks organization new management into a JOKE to all 2018 Free-Agent players this offseason .. Knicks having a No-Show Noah too.
    Truth be said .. Ryno Anderson defensive tactics n paint skills tandem with KP in a lineup for 3 straight seasons would've help improve KP skills at both center and PF to become the Knicks future star that WINS games. KP development the past 3 seasons on the Knicks has been off the wall crazy under Phil Jax and Mills/Perry, having 3 different head-coaches plus a different starter center each of the 3 seasons.

Lebron dragged this Cavs team to the finals is one thing but beating these Warrior's is impossible imo.
    As I predicted a sweep. Cavs just weren't in the same league as the Dubs, 4 All Stars against one and this is what you get. Probably the worst finals in my memory, I would love to see Lebron stay in CLE remembering that letter he wrote when he left Miami to return home to Ohio but Lebron won't stay if he wants to join a super team to compete with the Warriors, this Cavs team is not that team. I'd love for him to go to HOU but he and CP3 are going to have to take big pay cuts for that to happen.

    Cavaliers star LeBron James played the last three games of the NBA Finals with a significant and "self-inflicted" right hand injury that he suffered following the team's Game 1 overtime loss.

    Sources told ESPN that the injury was the result of James' punching a whiteboard in the locker room after that game. James was frustrated by the overturned offensive foul on the Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant with less than a minute remaining in regulation, which was changed to a blocking foul on James following a replay review by the official, and not JR Smith's lack of recognition in the final seconds, sources said.

    "I let the emotions get the best of me and pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand," James said following Friday's Game 4 loss to the Warriors.

    James had two MRIs during the series and wore a soft cast when he wasn't practicing, playing or in view of the media, sources said, so as not to give the Warriors a competitive advantage. He iced the hand after games and used a tennis ball to strengthen his grip and try to push out the swelling on off days, sources said.

    He appeared with a cast on during his news conference after Friday's game.

    Good point .. the worst NBA FINALS were Olyjuwon's Houston Rockets sweep over Shaq/Penny Orlando Magic in 1991.

    I have to give Lebron super-props for taking a team that were put together at the February deadline to the FINALS !!!
    I did not believe the Lebron's Cavs were going to get pass the Toronto Raptors or the Boston Celtricks in a postseason series by having 2 months to prepare 4 new players to be a part of the Cavs postseason rotation, plus 2 of the players having no playoff experience.

    Why are so many NBA fans comparing Lebron with Jordan ???
    When Lebron are in a different type of class of NBA players than Jordan ....
    Lebron's all-around performance are in the same type of class as Super-Star Coach/Players Magic Johnson and Larry Bird strong team-leadership - having the ability to perform at all 5 positions night after night to WIN Championships.

    Mike Jordan were the best Winning all-around 2-Way Point-Forward (3-position) in the history of NBA basketball.
    No NBA player has ever compared to Jordan's Championship winning performance as a Point-Forward.
    No NBA player has ever compared to Wilt Chamberlain's Championship winning performance as a Center.
    The same-way only 3 NBA players Magic/Bird/and Lebron's performed at all 5 position to Win Championships.

    It makes me laugh when fans compare Ball-Hogging high-scorer Kobe Bryant's lack of defense in the Top-10 best players in NBA history. Kobe performance may be listed in the Top-50 best players in NBA history, but Kobe are far from being compared to any of the Top-10 players in NBA history. High scorer Durant joining a coach and teammates having championship rings will be passing Kobe in the history of the NBA Top-50 best players in the next two seasons.

    Yeah, LeBron is closer to West (number of Ls in Finals) than he is to MJ (Finals wins).

    I mean, Russell and MJ were more dominant in their times...

    Lol at Lebitch for going full STAT mode in the post-game presser. I was rooting for Lebron just because KD gets on my nerves being so damn good.
