"I think maybe the greatest testament to LeBron is that five years ago he was one of the top-five players of all time". The Warriors made a comeback. The crowd rose to salute him in what may be his last game as a Cavalier. I don't remember anybody asking who was going to win MVP in the Finals. "It's to win", Myers said evenly the day before Game 4 in Cleveland.
Just like last year, the Warriors are now up 3-0 over the Cavaliers and will look to do one better on last year's Finals by completing the sweep in Game 4.More news: ‘Trash Panda’ scaled a Minnesota skyscraper, and everyone loved it
The Warriors blocked 13 shots in the game, with Curry and Durant joining Green with three apiece.
The key to Golden State's enormous luxury of talent is that the players have agreed to take less money to make themselves something close to unstoppable.
"When you make mistakes they make you pay", he said, "because they're already more talented than you are but they also have the minds behind it, too, and they also have the championship DNA".More news: NCAA changes redshirt rule in college football
Many - perhaps most - will fail to notice it, but the axiom is true: a rising tide raises all ships. Not a bad way for Durant to follow after posting a playoff career-high 43 points in Game 3. "Then he has to go through Houston and Golden State". Where Curry and Klay stuttered, KD got assistance from less-heralded contributors like JaVale McGee, Jordan Bell, and Shaun Livingston. Parker, who averaged almost 25 points and shot 57 percent in the Finals, edged teammate Tim Duncan for the league MVP honors. John Stockton, All-time assists, and steals leader, ranks third amongst point guards only one ahead of active star Stephen Curry. However, it is a risk the Cavaliers should be willing to take to show James how badly they want to keep him on the team. "Kevin Durant, look what he did for us previous year, he did us a great service", Myers said. Durant won it for the second straight year, averaging 28.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 7.5 assists.
After playing alongside one and coaching against the other on so many occasions, the Dubs head coach knows just how great they both are better than most. James' hand was so swollen after Game 1 that the initial MRI exam didn't reveal clear results. If anyone thought the Warriors had it too easy this season (Golden State's players, coaches, and executives would vehemently disagree), there's no doubt 2018-19 will prove more hard. "I'm excited to see how they come back next year", Durant said. Also, there is no team in the National Basketball Association coming from a 0-3 deficit and eventually did win the series.
Recent cover athletes for the game include James on NBA 2K14 (left the Heat a year later to return to the Cavs), Kevin Durant on NBA 2K15 (left the Thunder a year later to join the Warriors), Paul George on NBA 2K17 (traded by the Pacers a year later) and Kyrie Irving on NBA 2K18 (traded by Cavs before the game even shipped).More news: Fed Raises Rates; Officials Lift Outlook to Four 2018 Hikes
