LeBron James' conversation with Jerry West after losing first two NBA Finals

2018 NBA Finals – Game Two

2018 NBA Finals – Game Two

The Golden State Warriors again are NBA Champions, and this time it was the most convincing win of them all.

Now James, a free agent, has a hard off-season decision. It's the team's third National Basketball Association title in four years.

"We used the experience a year ago to our advantage", Curry said.

Yes, the expectation is that this run keeps going - it has every reason to keep going - the truth remains that no one can definitively say how long something special like this will last, and most of the time, it doesn't last as long as you'd think.

Durant is the closest player to James in this series, averaging 31.7 points, 10.3 rebounds, 6.7 assists, 0.7 steals and 42 minutes per game.

All they need to be worrying about is making sure they don't get swept on their home court in what could possibly be LeBron's final game in a Cavs uniform.

I selfishly was hoping Durant would leave.

James said he did not yet know where he would play next season.

There were still a few seconds left on the clock when the Golden State Warriors stormed off their bench to begin a celebration that wasn't guaranteed.

The four-time MVP got off to a scorching start in the series, netting 51 points in Game 1, 29 points and 13 boards in Game 2 and a 33-point triple-double on Wednesday night. Players not named LeBron James were contributing, and it was a single-possession game down the stretch. There was no way the Cavs could hold out hope of any comeback and Bron and coach Tye Lue knew it. "Even when you do defend them well, they've got guys like Steph and KD who can make unbelievable shots".

Overcoming obstacles all season long, the Warriors were not going to be denied and won the fourth straight finals matchup against Cleveland easily.

James said after the loss he played the last three games with a broken right hand, reportedly caused when he punched a display board in frustration after a J.R. Smith error and referee call reversal led to an overtime loss in a game the Cavs led late.

"It was self-inflicted", he said.

On the night, James top scored for his side and left to a standing ovation after playing 41 of the game's first 44 minutes, but it was his least productive performance of the series.

Through jet-lagged beginnings in the wake of preseason trip to China, followed by a succession of injuries requiring 32 different lineups and, last month, surviving the trial by fire of a brutal seven-game Western Conference Finals, this NBA Finals conclusion is the sweetest of all for the Warriors because it comes with as much relief as joy. "Me and my team is going to figure out what's the best possibility for me". He fights and competes to the end. "But after a game like that I'm not in any position to talk about that".
