Despite being down 3-0 in Finals, LeBron's Greatness Continues to Shine

Golden State Warriors at Cleveland Cavaliers - 6/8/18 Free NBA Finals Game 4 Pick, Odds, and Prediction LeBron can’t save himself, so he’ll leave Cleveland after losing NBA Finals
Lucia Summers | 10 June, 2018, 05:50

So this series is just about finished, or at least, that's what the history books say.

After a sub-par performance in Game Three, Warriors guard Stephen Curry responded with a spectacular shooting night by scoring a game-high 37 points, while James had a team-high 23. "Then the challenges that faced us".

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. And they are the odds-on favorites to endure next year.

James once again gave a heroic effort, but it was not enough to stem the overwhelming and balanced talent of Golden State, which came into the series looking for a sweep after Cleveland denied them the opportunity previous year for a ideal playoffs run. That came after Cleveland rallied from 3-1 down, helped enormously by Green's fifth-game suspension. The Warriors proceeded to out-score the Cavs 17-7 in overtime in what was the first of four straight wins.

Regardless, 2018 likely still would rank as the toughest.

According to ESPN, the four-time MVP had two MRIs during the series and was being treated in between games but he and the team made a real effort to hide this from the media.

The White House also announced he would cut short his time at the two-day summit and leave on Saturday morning . Morneau said he is engaged in intense talks with his US counterparts in the hopes of finding a way forward.

Kevin Durant won his second straight NBA Finals MVP trophy.

"We all want something that's bigger than ourselves".

Kevin Durant's decision to join the Warriors received a lot of scrutiny, but his time in Golden State has been an outright success. This feels more like reality.

"I hope he stays", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. But it's a very different feeling. "It was hard and it gets more and more difficult as you go through".

This year, there's been a toughness to go along with the finesse.

Dejounte Murray of the San Antonio Spurs doesn't really have his own interactions with James to make his recruitment a bit ironic, but his team is 2-1 against James in the Finals during his career, although all of those wins also came with Tim Duncan on the roster.

The naysayers can complain about Durant's move from Oklahoma City to Golden State two years ago tipping competitive balance in the league, but the Warriors' ascendance to the status of a dynasty was far from assured.
