Warriors' Green will be on the court for this Finals Game 5

Jun 12, 2017, 14:12

Jordan and Johnson's names came to James without any hesitation when asked by The Associated Press which past greats he would like to play with. More so, when the next best players on the Cavaliers those three seasons were Antawn Jamison (2012), Anderson Varejao and Dion Waiters (2013, 2014) and Luol Deng (2014).

In the first three games of the NBA Finals the Golden State Warriors outscored the Cleveland Cavaliers by 45 points with 15 more made three-pointers.

"For me personally, when I chose to go back to Cleveland, I had to decide like, because our owner at the time when I left made a decision to put out this article that we all know about where he bashed me and disrespected not only me as an individual, but disrespected my name", James said in the video.

Not that James - or Magic or Michael - is participating.

James will play in his 217th playoff game tonight, passing Shaquille O'Neal for seventh in league history.

At one point, Oakley said that there were NBA All-Stars who didn't know how to play basketball. "He's been an unbelievable player in this league for a long time, and I think he's - he senses this is his time, his moment, his team".

Now they need the biggest ever in the NBA's postseason. I'm not quite sure. I kept telling myself, "he is so good, it is unfair". I'm more of a 5-on-5 guy.

Despite the win, the Wine and Gold still have plenty of work to do down 3-1. "So probably not. I probably won't be a part of the 3-on-3 matchup". After he announced his decision in a nationally televised event, Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert published a letter on the Cavaliers' website. Starting a team from scratch, Irving would be the clear third choice of those three. "They don't just lay down and die", Durant said. "FIBA will get together and figure out how teams will qualify". If a Bay Area dynasty ensues, James will have to take some course of action ... but keep all of this in mind when dreaming up LeBron's future sidekicks, because he has a damn great one right now. During that time, they have earned an average of $6,466,698.49 per year for a grand total of $1,584,341,130 in career earnings.

But the odds were against the Pirates in the 1960 World Series when Bill Mazeroski clouted a walkoff homer over the head of Yankees left-fielder Yogi Berra and the outfield wall for the victory. Brings memories of previous year when Seth Curry's wife claimed the finals were fixed. "The Olympic stage will provide these elite athletes with the opportunity to further demonstrate their talents", NBA Deputy Commissioner Mark Tatum said.

LeBron James also commented about the trash talk that came from Draymond Green.

I do think this has something to do with the perception that Durant is "chasing a title".

"So we see everything". I think I'm a pretty smart guy and I learned my lesson. "I appreciate y'all. I'm having a great time right now". "Whenever I can put on a USA Basketball jersey". "Ahh, man, I never wanted this to end". Serbia has won the title twice and Qatar was the champion in 2014.

The Warriors won 14 in a row without him during the regular season, reviving talk that they could win it all without him. "We can't worry about what happens after the game", Durant said.

With one 10-minute period, the 3-on-3 is a lot quicker than its 5-on-5 counterpart. But not since 1951 has a team down 3-0 forced a seventh game in the finals. Twice in the opening minutes, the Warriors failed to secure a defensive rebound - a recurring issue this season - and then didn't scramble back to the line in time, giving up momentum-building first quarter 3s to Kevin Love and J.R. Smith, who would go on to hit 11 combined. But these two teams and this series has been anything but normal, and oddsmakers should feel like Game 4 was the last chance for a desperate team to avoid a sweep rather than the beginning of another record-breaking comeback.
