    LeBron having a broken hand doesn't surprise me. What surprises me is that he broke it punching a blackboard and not by punching J.R. Smith.

    Steph Curry got robbed, btw. Don't care what anyone says about game 3. This isn't the "Game 3 MVP" award. This is the Finals MVP award, and Steph was better than Durant in games 1, 2, and 4. KD was downright dominant in game 3, but in no way, shape, or form did he deserve finals MVP. Egregious error by the voters.

    LeBron plus bum ass Kevin love and a bunch of Jr smith's yeah LeBron really had a chance. The NBA needs a cap or teams cannot be stacked like this especially when the east is so weak

    Kyrie should have stuck around for this season.

    Say they still lose in the finals and Bron leaves, he'd then have the chance to be the main cog, or if he wanted out nobody could really blame him.

    Anyhow, The Decision 3.0 has started.

    I hope those two Finals dates were worth it, Cleveland. The Boston Celtics deserved this a hell of a lot more.

    You're lying to yourself if you think being 0-for-3 in fMVP doesn't bother Curry.

    I'm a Raptors fan but I'll be sad (again) if LeBron leaves Cleveland.

    NBA never should’ve allowed that ridiculous cap jump in 2016, should’ve been smoothed over somehow. That’s the only reason GSW got that snake Durant and in turn ruined the league. The whole purpose of the cap is to create parity and prevent loaded teams like GS with multiple all stars and expensive role players like Iggy from adding a freaking top 2 player in the world. The nba and Durant should feel embarrassed, way to go KD you did something they didn’t even need you to do.

    I can certainly buy the idea of his hand being hurt and him not letting on til tonight so GS wouldn't know, but this isn't the 90s. GS wouldn't have done anything to target or take advantage of that. Game isn't physical anymore. Admitting to an injury like that in the 90s was a death sentence, nowadays it essentially has no impact.

    Yea, defending a guy physically definitely doesn’t sound like something Green would do....


    Also regarding the MVP, it was clearly Durant’s. Game 1 they were about equal on the offensive side, slight edge to Curry, but Curry got abused on defense down the stretch.

    Game 2 Curry was poor for 3 quarters while Durant was crazy efficient and kept the Warriors in it/ahead (with Klay too), then Curry hit 2 dagger 3s to end the game and then hit another 3 when the game was over to set the 3s record. Durant was a bigger cause of that win.

    Game 3 from Durant was an all time great game. Not just from the point totals, but the crazy efficiency he had (43 points on 23 shots) and the dagger 3 that basically ended the series. Curry was essentially a no show.

    Game 4 Curry was better, but it was a blowout for almost all of the second half and again, 4 4th quarter 3s when it was a blowout inflated his numbers a lot.

    How devastating would it be if the Cavs didn't get the one they did get? And they had to come back down 3-1 and with Curry being hurt, before they got Durant.

    I really think LeBron's time this time has run it's course in Cleveland, and I don't see where they're going to get the other guys to bring in to get LeBron help.

    If Hayward and Kyrie had stayed healthy they would have been in the finals, not Cleveland. Kyrie landed in a better place. He has a chance to compete for the title for the foreseeable future.

    I don't even know how they'd get help. They've got so much dead weight in garbage contracts so they can't just sign players and it'll be stupid hard to get a team to take that trash.

    Yea, Kyrie in Boston has a dramatically better supporting cast than he would have in Cleveland. Boston probably has the best team outside their best player in the East, Cleveland is probably near the bottom.

    Kevin Love had a good series until game 4

    And that bum ass team is exactly what Lebron wanted

    Only person to blame for Cavs poor roster is Lebron

    Interesting thought. Were it not for LeBron and Kyrie's superhuman performances in '16 we could be looking at a 4-peat.

    This is not 100% true. he wanted Kyrie to stay. Try to be objective for once.
