6 jokes Le Bron James has made despite the Cavs rough NBA Finals
On social media, some have joked that J. Prince is the only person who can save LeBron from being swept by the Golden State Warriors. Last night's Game 4 clincher, was much more of a decimation, as the tipped faves crushed the Cavs 108-85. But it would've pained me to do so-not because of any ill will toward Durant, but because I feel for Curry getting overshadowed again. We can't get enough of this feeling.
As the Golden State juggernaut sent James off the floor with 4:03 left to a curtain call-perhaps his last in a Cavaliers uniform-the closest competition on the floor was between Curry and Durant.
"We knew that they were going to come out with a tough first punch and we answered it and ran right back at them and set the tone for the whole game", said Curry.
But Steph seemed to be on a mission to finally claim it as he was the Warriors' best player in the opening two games and also broke the record for the most three-pointers in a Finals game with nine.
While the Warriors are at the top of the National Basketball Association mountain with a third championship in the past four years, they face some free agency questions of their own. "And when the competition is as great as it has been every year we've been here facing LeBron and the teams he's been with", Curry said. It's like the game within the game. "Then the challenges that faced us".
Many NBA fans reacted to the announcement and the Cavs' defeat with sympathy for a player who many felt had "carried the team" during the finals.
"I pretty much played the last two games with a broken hand".
Durant was voted the best player in this series - and he wants to keep growing. And it was the first time that a team had lost a finals in a clean sweep since 2007, when the San Antonio Spurs inflicted that pain on... the James-led Cavaliers.
Nor after everything James said in his unforgettable "I'm Coming Home" essay he co-wrote with Lee Jenkins for Sports Illustrated in July 2014.
And they're about to beat everybody. You can't have flaws. "I mean, we all know that", Lue insisted. I'll wake up Friday morning, I'll be locked in on the game plan and what needs to be done to help our team win.
The Warriors lead the series 3-0 with Game 4 on Thursday.
"It's different, man. It's just a different vibe because we've been through a season with each other already as champions", said Durant, who told ESPN this week he will re-sign with the Warriors. "That's something this team needs to do and continue to be resilient. So we understand that and learn from it", Green said. "It makes us come to work and try to play at that championship level every single day, and that's the hardest part".
Even if he played second fiddle in Curry in the clinching win, it can't be overlooked that Durant averaged 28.8 points, 10.8 rebounds, 7.5 assists and 2.3 blocks per game in the series on 52.6 percent shooting from the field and 40.9 percent from 3-point range.
Houston probably isn't going away and remember, the Rockets gave the Warriors all they wanted this season.
