Kevin Durant named NBA Finals MVP

"Pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand". He is rumored to be interested in playing for the Philadelphia 76ers or the Los Angeles Lakers.

Game 3 was the ideal example of the discrepancy between the two sides, where one squad had to play at their individual and collective peak to have a chance, and the other survived even when two of its stars-Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson-misfired all night. Check the scoreboard above and click on the stats link. It makes us better.

Curry scored 20 points in the first half, hitting 4-of-6 3-point shots, as Golden State seized a 61-52 half-time edge.

Golden State Warriors owner Peter Guber kisses the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy after beating the Cleveland Cavaliers in game four of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena.

James was on the Cleveland team that lost 4-0 to San Antonio in 2007 as well. They are officially a dynasty, wing back-to-back titles and three out of four", one fan tweeted while another wrote, "So much unnecessary hate, but they earned everything they can enjoy now, nothing came by mistake. LeBron and the Cavaliers have played well to get to the finals but I feel this is the end of the road for them.

Arguably, James is deserving of the regular season MVP and Finals MVP awards but given previous years this looks unlikely.

He appeared with the cast during his press conference after Friday's game. On Wednesday night, the former MVP canned three three-pointer from at least 30 feet out, including his 33-footer with 49 seconds to play that gave Golden State a six-point edge and essentially put Game 3 on ice.

Curry said after the win that the team used its experience in Game 4 against the Cavaliers previous year - also down 3-0 to the Warriors, they won by 19 to force one more game - to prepare, knowing they'd face a focused opponent. After his record-breaking heroics in Game 2, Cleveland trapped Curry all game, reducing him to one of the worst shooting nights of his career.

No team in National Basketball Association history has come back from 3-0 down in the playoffs.

But James nonchalantly walked by them, not even making eye contact with the Cleveland fans.

James could be packing up and leaving his native northeast OH once again.

Following the Finals, OddsShark relayed the latest odds for the four-time NBA MVP's next team.

Brown was working his 17th NBA Finals.

A bounce here, a couple stops there, the Cavs could be leading in these finals and the conversation would be different.

Seems like a reasonable bet that James, long thought to be the real GM in Cleveland, didn't sign off on that particular trade.

"Obviously, I don't have a boxing hand", James said. "Tomorrow I'll replay some plays and some moments, things of that nature".
