With Promises Kept, LeBron James Has Choices to Make

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyle Korver has been shut down by the Warriors in the NBA Finals for a second straight year

CLEVELAND -Stephen Curry scored 37 points, Kevin Durant added 20 and a triple-double and the Golden State Warriors stamped themselves a dynasty after winning their second straight National Basketball Association title and third in four years Friday night, 108-85 over the Cleveland Cavaliers to complete a sweep and perhaps drive LeBron James from his home again to chase championships.

That the Cavaliers were competitive at all-or that they even made the finals-was down to their talismanic forward, LeBron James, who was nursing an injury for the past three games.

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

LeBron James paced Cleveland with 23 points.

The last time the NBA Finals ended on or before June 8 was back in 1986, when the Boston Celtics defeated the Houston Rockets in six games. But the weight of having to shoulder so much of the load throughout the Playoffs seemed to catch up with James in Friday's finale.

"When it comes to me looking at myself in the mirror after every game, after every season and know I played my best - or I should say, I gave my best effort and had the right intentions and really appreciated every day that I got to play - and I can go in the locker room right now and look at every one of my teammates in the face and have that sense of pride of what I was able to do out there on the floor and how I can help my team win a championship, that's all that matters to me", Curry said.

At times, LeBron's weak supporting cast appeared to drive him mad.

Warriors-Cavs was something special - the teams were Northern Lights for the league, their showdowns were something to look forward to every time they happened - and while I won't miss the trips to OH, I will sure miss this rivalry when it's gone. Kevin Durant again fulfilled his expressed objective in joining the Warriors. A free agent, he might have played his last game in Cleveland.

According to reliable sources, Kaala , which was initially banned in Karnataka, will now release in almost 130 screens in the state.

He explained that that he was upset by some calls that went against the Cavs late in the fourth quarter of their opening loss and he was upset they had missed their chance to win on the road.

"Kevin Durant", he said.

Curry, who shot a Knicks-worthy 3-of-16 the previous game, started hot and never stopped. They were a ideal 16-of-16 from the stripe and handed out 25 assists on 39 made baskets. Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, two of the Warriors' other stars, were also unproductive, combining for 20 points despite each playing 40 or more minutes.

That trend played out at the worst possible time - with the Warriors turning it up offensively while holding the Wine & Gold to 24 percent shooting in the period.

Kevin Durant's decision to join the Warriors received a lot of scrutiny, but his time in Golden State has been an outright success. It's a credit to Steph and KD that they don't let the honor come between them, but imagine if Kobe was winning MVPs over Shaq?

Cavaliers: James scored 748 points in the playoffs, the second most in a postseason behind Jordan, who scored 759 in 1992.

He is 3-6 in the NBA Finals, 1-3 against the Warriors and 0-2 versus Golden State with Durant. The next closest players are Larry Bird and Tim Duncan with 21 apiece. What will LeBron James do next?

"Our season was kind of the unknown". "I was there in the Hamptons (at the Durant recruiting session) when we had that discussion". "I knew that even if I wasn't feeling a hundred percent, I had to get back for the playoffs".
