Kevin Durant named NBA Finals MVP

No player in the league understands the current climate better than James, who formed a super-team in Miami with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh and won two National Basketball Association titles before returning to Cleveland and joining forces with All-Stars Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving. The East might be a wild race, with Toronto, Philadelphia and Boston probably all likely to enter the year thinking they have NBA Finals potential - as will any team that has James on its roster next fall.

The Cavaliers don't have a second dynamic playmaker or scorer, and it put the burden on James to do more. It's good for you to be around guys like this. The site's sources explained that James was angry about the last minute overturned offensive foul on the Warriors' Kevin Durant that turned into a blocking foul on James. That move was always about his want for titles, or perhaps through it, a want for validation.

In the midst of NBA Finals, one of the biggest hip-hop battles in years took place between Drake and Pusha T. After both artists released diss records against each other, it was reported that rap mogul J. Prince convinced Drake to not respond to Pusha T's lethal, "The Story of Adidon".

Kevin Durant was named Finals MVP for the second year in a row, becoming the sixth player to achieve this feat.

"This is so hard to do and doing it three out of four years is incredible", guard Klay Thompson said. He was 2-2 in four trips to the NBA Finals with Miami.

As these playoffs showed - and he himself said - LeBron James remains in championship mode. Once again, Game 4 was held in LeBron James' house at a packed Quicken Loans Arena.

That means the Warriors get two chances to bring on an early summer: If they lose Game 4, they'll play host to Game 5 on June 11. These playoffs were his personal stress test.

U.S., China End Latest Trade Talks Without Settlement
On Saturday President Trump insisted on Twitter that the U.S. had been "ripped off by other countries for years on trade". Beijing warned all the commitments it had made so far were premised on "not fighting a trade war".

Their depth covers injuries, off nights and backcourt struggles, with players stepping at just the right moments to deliver a locked-in performance. The Celtics offered him a glimpse of the future while showcasing the failings of the supporting Cavs. That's what GMs and presidents and certain players, it's not every player. For James, it comes short of single-handedly toppling a dynasty.

James averaged 34 points, 8.5 rebounds and 10 assists in the series, but as has been the case in the past, he didn't have enough help.

LeBron James played through the NBA Finals with a serious right hand injury that he sustained after Game 1, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

Let's be totally honest here, did we really think that Embiid wouldn't be the first one to say something to James?

'I pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand, and that's what it is'. LeBron stopped to sort out the confusion. While Durant is expected to re-sign, JaVale McGee, David West and Nick Young are among those who no longer will be under contract. It can balance the egos of superstars and rely on the contributions of a rookie. They overcame an 11-point deficit in Game 1 of this year's NBA Finals and rallied from 13 points down to beat the Cavs in Game 3 on Wednesday.

Successes come in all flavors. The Warriors had hidden it away.
