Lue plans to keep coaching Cavaliers, and hopefully LeBron

Yes, James is already arguably the best player in National Basketball Association history and just put together one of the most fantastic postseasons in National Basketball Association history despite getting swept by the Golden State Warriors in the Finals.

James, who was playing in his eighth consecutive NBA Finals and fourth straight with the Cavs, has carried the team since he returned in 2014 but would likely need to see some key additions to keep him with his hometown team.

The Cavaliers clawed back from an 11-point deficit before pulling in front on a slam dunk from James near the midway mark of the second quarter that brought the home crowd to their feet. If they did make it work though it would make the Sixers automatic championship contenders with the trio of Ben Simmon, Embiid and James.

"I think if LeBron James went to the Golden State Warriors then there would be a high possibility I won't be here", Green said, via Kenny Ducey of Sports Illustrated. The Warriors demolished anything left in yet another of their signature third-quarter runs, extending their lead to 21 points before winning 108-85 in Cleveland. "This was the hardest one we've had by far", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

And this Golden State run isn't ending any time soon. "It's impossible to do that, because they're built from a different cloth, and I know that firsthand".

This is a big deal though, because someone managed to break through Sky and BT's hold on Premier League matches. The company said it would make the games available as part of its current Amazon Prime subscription deal.

"Game 4 is going to be the toughest game we've played in the series, to close it out", Warriors guard Stephen Curry said. The team does not have much cap space to sign free agents and they lack assets for a significant trade. I stayed the course and was able to have a pretty special year, outside of losing in the Finals.

"The Bay Area allows me to be who I am, as a city, to just blend in, and the team allows me to do the same thing", Durant said during the interview.

LeBron James led Cleveland with 23 points, seven rebounds and eight assists, but also had six turnovers. "But after a game like that, I'm not in any position to talk about that". However, no losing player has won the award since Jerry West in 1969 and voters weren't changing that for a team that just got swept.

Durant said at the time the leadup to his decision was the most challenging few weeks of his career but after the success he has enjoyed over the last two seasons he is not about to second guess his move.

A disappointed James is widely expected to leave the Cavaliers this summer, for the second time.
