LeBron James takes shot at Blazers for not drafting Kevin Durant

LeBron James takes shot at Blazers for not drafting Kevin Durant

While meeting with reporters on Thursday, LeBron was asked if he knew years ago that he would end up doing battle with Kevin Durant in important games all throughout his career.

Durant is averging 29.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 4.5 assists during the playoffs.

Kevin Durant's Game 3 masterpiece - 43 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists on 15-of-23 shooting and 6-of-9 on 3-pointers - was one of the greatest individual performances we've ever seen on this stage and it was just another exclamation point on an incredible Finals resume.

It was James' third consecutive game of scoring 25 points or more in this year's finals. According to data from NBA Advanced Stats and Sportsradar's shot difficulty model that takes into account specific information about the shooters, defenders, shot location, distance to defenders and actions prior to the shot, Durant scored 16 more points than expected, given his shot selection.

White House Economic Adviser: Canada's Trudeau 'Stabbed Us In The Back'
Trump is due to meet with North Korea's Kim on Tuesday. "They know it", he insisted in his departing news conference. Never before have senior White House officials gone on television and made such claims about Canada's leader.

Kevin Durant has become something of an antihero of sorts, this after the former Oklahoma City Thunder forward bolted for the greener pastures of the Golden State Warriors en route to his first National Basketball Association championship. Almost two-thirds of his shots in the playoffs (64 percent) been tightly or very tightly defended (with the defender four feet away or closer), according to NBA.com.

Durant's shot-making has meant so much to the Warriors in the Finals. Curry made nine 3-pointers in Game 2 of this series, the most in NBA Finals history, and Cleveland intentionally blanketed him defensively.

Draymond Green and Stephen Curry are already under contract for next season.

After Game 3 Wednesday, he targeted Kevin Durant.
