Signs point to James leaving Cavaliers

09 June, 2018, 21:45 | Author: Tommie Newton
  • Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyle Korver has been shut down by the Warriors in the NBA Finals for a second straight year

On Friday night, their season of stress finally caught up to them as Golden State blew the Cavaliers out, 108-85, at The Q to earn its third NBA Championship in the last four years.

"Not winning four, but winning Game 4, so that's all we're going to focus on". He had 23 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds, which isn't bad when you consider he was playing with only one hand.

And again, it was Durant, who added 12 rebounds and 10 assists - more satisfaction and validation for a player who couldn't beat the Warriors so he joined them. With his future in doubt, James left with 4:03 remaining to chants of "MVP, MVP". Forward Kevin Durant had a triple double and won his second straight finals MVP, while Warriors team leader Stephen Curry had 37 points, including seven three pointers.

It was the second time the Warriors have secured the championship in Cleveland during Kerr's four-year tenure.

Through the first three games of the 2018 Finals, the Wine & Gold went toe-to-toe with the reigning Champs. And then you have Draymond (Green), who is arguably one of the best defenders and minds we have in our game.

Here's the information you need to watch tonight's Warriors vs Cavaliers Game 4 on TV or online including the start time.

That depth proved to be too much for a Cleveland team that lacked options after LeBron James.

He said "Oncologists have been waiting for these results, it will affect practice on Monday morning". The usual treatment is surgery followed by years of a hormone-blocking drug.

"Wherever that puts us in the conversation in the history of the National Basketball Association or being a dynasty. we'll have plenty of time to discuss that later". But since then, he has seen the Cavaliers trade All-Star guard Kyrie Irving to the Celtics, the departure of general manager David Griffin and back-to-back Finals losses to the Warriors. At the same time though, considering the interactions he's had with some of these players during what could potentially be his last season with the Cleveland Cavaliers, it's a bit amusing to think how quickly guys jumped to asking James to join their teams.

LeBron James sat in his locker, covered by more ice than clothing and his right hand - which he injured while punching a whiteboard following the Cavaliers' devastating Game 1 loss - wrapped.

Still, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue was quick to point out that his team has already defied huge odds. Of the Warriors' four superstars, all are under contract, although Durant has an opt-out clause in his. "I just appreciate what he's done for us this season".

He can't be guarded now - and he wants to keep growing.

"When you get on the podium and you realize all the hard work that you put into it and all that you've been through led to that moment, it never gets tiresome", Curry said. "Even when you do defend them well, they've got guys like Steph and KD who can make unbelievable shots".

Are NBA fans now in line for "The Decision 2", a follow-up to the now infamous media tour James and his entourage staged prior to him leaving Cleveland for Miami in 2010?

"I knew that my talent level here in Cleveland couldn't succeed getting past a Boston, getting past the San Antonios of the league or whatever the case may be", he said.
