LeBron James' farewell game as a Cavalier? Go behind the scenes

Kobe Bryant doesn’t want to talk about Le Bron James in the context of his teammates. More

Stephen Curry is under contract for basically the rest of his prime. Sources tell ESPN, LeBron went about punching a whiteboard in the locker room, seemingly over an overturned foul on Kevin Durant, which ended up influencing the final outcome of the match. One of two game-winners, mind you.

It's their league now, without question. The Warriors inflicted the first 4-0 NBA Finals blanking since the Cavaliers were swept by San Antonio in 2007.

The Cavs may very well be coming apart.

"It's been a insane ride", Curry said. All the injuries we went through while going through that grind of trying to get back to this position was extremely tough. As the Warriors, leading 61-52 at halftime, extended their lead to 21 in the third quarter James produced just four free throws.

The health of James' hand likely would not have had much affect on the outcome of the series, a four-game sweep by the Warriors. James had two MRIs during the series and iced the hand after games.

This much is clear: Golden State has no designs on giving up its throne.

Although Game 4 was down 12% in the metered market ratings from June 6's Game 3, overall, the four-game 2018 NBA Finals averaged 12.2 in metered market ratings, an uptick of 7% over ABC's traditional average for the NBA championship series. "I think I've shown this year why I will still continue to be in championship mode".

Their depth covers injuries, off nights and backcourt struggles, with players stepping at just the right moments to deliver a locked-in performance. "That's my only concern". MVP numbers in any other year, against any other team.

"All of us together are just unselfish", said Warriors centre JaVale McGee. They can make plays. "You can't have "my bads" or things like that because they're going to make you pay".

Trump, G6 leaders exchange barbs
This is how British Prime Minister Theresa May described Trump's latest tariffs on steel and aluminum coming out of Europe. Canada has flatly rejected welcoming Russian Federation back to the G7 fold, pointing to its annexation of Crimea.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver marvels at how the Warriors have put themselves in this position.

They couldn't wait any longer.

And they are having more than their share of fun along the way.

The Warriors completed their second straight championship victory by inflicting the ninth sweep in National Basketball Association history and first since 2007, when the San Antonio Spurs swept the Cavaliers and a young LeBron James.

How the league looks a year from now hinges in so many ways on what he decides a few weeks from now.

Many guessed the L.A. Lakers will be his next team. Golden State to be able to get a Game 1. They traded Kyrie Irving against LeBron's wishes and whittled down their return for the star point guard to spare parts and the No. 8 pick - a valuable asset, but one that didn't help the 2018 Cavs compete in these playoffs. They will add pieces.

"He obviously has some health issues he's still working through, but we'll get it done". This is why he'll be back in the gym in a couple weeks, restarting the process.

"I've got a big smile on my face right now", Curry said. I'm never going to give up and never going to give in.
