NBA players react to the Warriors' third title, LeBron's free agency

NBA players react to the Warriors' third title, LeBron's free agency

The third time was more than just the charm.

They became the ninth team in National Basketball Association history to sweep a Finals series, the first to do so since San Antonio swept Cleveland in 2007 and the second Warriors team to achieve the feat since the 1975 victory over the former Washington Bullets.

"It was definitely the toughest", Kerr said in comparing the three championships.

"I hope that doesn't sound arrogant".

But the odds to win the 2019 NBA title posted at the Westgate sports book reflect the most likely landing spots for the four-time NBA MVP and imminent free agent. "So, I don't have an answer for you right now".

Jackson coached the legendary Bulls team of the 1990s on which Kerr had the good fortune of playing alongside Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman. "We kind of unlock the greatness out of each other".

The Cavs not only look to be nearing the end of their run of dominating the Eastern Conference, but they have few paths to improve this offseason thanks to a bevy of large contracts and lack of attractive trade assets. "But what (Cavaliers coach) Ty (Lue) did with his group and obviously what LeBron does night after night is just incredible". "They had an wonderful run". He got seven of the 11 votes cast by the media, with Curry getting the other four. "Kevin Durant, look what he did for us a year ago, he did us a great service", Myers said. "We won two championships".

"Looking forward just to different tricks that we use throughout the season next year".

James averaged 34 points, 8.5 rebounds and 10 assists in the series, but as has been the case in the past, he didn't have enough help.

West said after the title clincher that the team went through things behind the scenes that would be surprising if revealed. "I was there in the Hamptons (at the Durant recruiting session) when we had that discussion". "I'm happy I'll be able dial up some of them and get some equity in that deal when it comes to being able to talk amongst the greats and experience what they experienced. To win a championship on top of that means a lot". They cruised to 67 wins, then looked utterly dominant in posting a 16-1 record in the postseason - including winning their first 15 games of the playoffs - that was capped by beating the Cavaliers in five games to win the title. His right hand, which he says he injured after punching a blackboard as the result of a frustrating Game 1 loss, needed icing, too.

Furthermore, in December, James told Cleveland.com that he wants to "break the mold" on his next contract. "Very emotional", James said.

'I pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand, and that's what it is'.

If James were to get traded, he would have to opt into the previous year of his deal. And then you have Draymond (Green), who is arguably one of the best defenders and minds we have in our game. There will be no parade for him this year, no ring, no banner ceremony. Steph Curry led them in Game 4 with 37 points. The repeater tax, a penalty for being in the luxury tax multiple times during a certain period, is what will really put the brakes on Golden State.

But it's hard to envision a scenario where James knows where he's going - if anywhere.

"Certain challenges, some were apparent, some not", Myers said. "They move at such a pace, and they have five guys on the floor that can dribble, pass and shoot". Essentially, for certain tiers above the luxury tax, teams who qualify for the repeater will be charged a certain dollar amount multiplied by the amount of money in each tier they are over the luxury tax. That's the beauty of their team.

Thompson had all 10 of his points in the third period, during which Golden State outscored the Cavaliers 25-13.

The Houston Rockets and Philadelphia 76ers - James' two leading suitors - are next at 7-2. All around them were Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala and a succession of Warriors who ran around and harassed Cleveland's shooters enough to make life hard. "MVP!" as he went to the bench after congratulating some of the Warriors.

The Cleveland Cavaliers, whom James has led to four consecutive NBA Finals, are at 30-1.
