LeBron James officially surpasses Michael Jordan

LeBron James officially surpasses Michael Jordan

The Cavaliers, who rallied from a 3-1 series deficit to beat the Warriors in last year's finals, set an National Basketball Association record in winning their 13th straight playoff series potential closeout game.

But it all evaporated.

"They had multiple people come in and talk to me about what's more important", Thomas said Friday, a day after the Celtics were eliminated by the Cleveland Cavaliers. James wept on the Warriors home court in Oakland, where he was named unanimous NBA Finals MVP.

The Cleveland Cavaliers, champions of the NBA Eastern Conference.

The Cleveland Cavaliers, fueled by another milestone night for LeBron James, powered into a third straight NBA Finals meeting with the Golden State Warriors with a dominant 135-102 win over the Celtics in Boston on Thursday.

Warriors owner Joe Lacob said publicly he wanted another chance at the Cavs because of unfinished business from 2016.

Pippen went on to compare James to players like Magic Johnson and himself, as they were more of distributors than pure scorers like Bryant and Michael Jordan. But then he added this: "OK, maybe a slight preference for Cleveland". All I said is 'it is what it is.' I don't have any control over what the storyline is going to be.

Trump scolds European leaders who react by snickering
According to USA government figures, Germany past year boasted a $64 billion (57 billion euros) trade surplus with the US. At the time, it was jarring because conservative politicians don't talk that way about our allies.

Both teams dominated throughout the playoffs - the Warriors made history by going an unprecedented 12-0 through three rounds in the Western Conference, while the Cavs lost just one game to the Celtics to cap their dominant run.

And they're doing this without their head coach.

This time, with Kerr ailing, it is set up to be Warriors acting coach Mike Brown vs. Lue.

Kevin Durant and Steph Curry roll into the NBA Finals with a ideal record through three rounds. Hence, Golden State is favored. He is eligible for free agency after next season. Now he's four wins away from winning his first National Basketball Association championship.

Let's just say that Durant will be a somewhat larger presence in this series than Barnes was in the last one. "We just kept grinding". It's been a long time since anyone could say that. But the best movie franchises don't keep a stagnant cast. Simple as that. It's good that we're here now. We knew that would happen at some point.

It was a very welcomed sight in Irving's case, after he rolled his left ankle in the third quarter of Cleveland's Game 4 win.

Focusing specifically on Game 1 of the NBA Finals over the past 25 years, the Under has been a profitable 9-15-1 O/U since 1991 with an average combined score of 185.56 points versus an average closing total of 191.56. In 2015, James had to carry an injury-depleted roster and came up short in six games.

Manager: Allman tried to keep playing music until the end
His older brother Duane , a legendary guitar player, died in a motorcycle accident in 1971 at the age of just 24. Allman's last concert took place on October 29, 2016, in Atlanta. "I'm not going to get all cosmic on you".

The first time these teams met in the NBA Finals two years ago, the big story was Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love missing a majority of the series.

Can the Cavs do it again? Durant's just too much, he's just really such a great player and when you add him to this team, there's just too much there for the Cavs to handle.

With his performance last night Lebron James has officially passed Michael Jordan to take the top spot for all-time playoffs scoring.

The shot gave James 29 points for the game and 5,989 points for his postseason career, which edged him past Jordan's mark of 5,987.

"I wear the number because of Mike", James said. He's right. The more you watch him play, the clearer it becomes that he's constantly trying to make the best play possible as opposed to just good ones. Overall, they've won 27 of their last 28 games.

This was my pick before the playoffs started, and I'm sticking with it. "It's definitely one for the books for me up to this point".
