Kerr contract extension top priority for Warriors after Finals win

NBA: Warriors reportedly irked at Perkins for Curry run-in A look at 2018 NBA Finals Game 1 and 2 Kevin Durant play

The Warriors boys gifted Kerr the game he enjoys most and themselves a suffocating beatdown that denied their most serious rival even the barest illusion of hope.

Cleveland star LeBron James could join National Basketball Association scoring champion James Harden and Chris Paul in Houston or unite with young talent in Philadelphia to better challenge the Warriors. And at this early stage in the offseason, it's too soon to know what names would even be available to the Cavs.

"I have no idea at this point", James said. By the time they reached the Finals, it was clear that the Cavaliers didn't stand a chance at defeating them four times in a seven-game stretch. It feels like 10 or 15.

"I let the emotions get the best of me, " James said. Just like that, with James suffering a deep bone bruise on his right (shooting) hand that he feared was a fracture, this already-daunting challenge became "Mission: Impossible".

LeBron James has said he "pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand" after sustaining a self inflicted injury after losing game one of the finals against the Golden State Warriors.

The speculation is under way, and cleveland.com is outlining four scenarios that could unfold this summer.

CLEVELAND, Ohio - At least one member of the Cavaliers' front office attended Michael Porter Jr.'s pro day workout in Chicago on Friday, a league source told cleveland.com.

She also said the European Union would "act" against the US trade measures. Kim must not see American weakness". "He's a pathetic little man-child".

While it's always possible James could return to Cleveland, that seems unlikely as the Cavaliers have lost to Golden State twice in a row in the finals by a combined game margin of 8-1.

This series has been a painful reminder to James that the great teams have more than one king. He played in just three total games and looked slow in Missouri's NCAA Tournament loss. "So they have a lot of talent". "They're very different, but however you want to rank them, they're right there together".

The 2018 NBA Finals averaged 17.65 million viewers on ABC, which was a 13.5% drop from the 2017 norm of 20.4 million and 2.25 million below the previous Cavs-Warriors low (a 19.9 million average in 2015).

"Then it will ultimately come down to me, and so we'll see what happens". His decision, whatever it is, could mean Kevin Love gets traded. "But word of James' injury did not originate from his camp, nor does it make much sense that he would be eager to reveal this sort of lapse in judgment".

While the Heat management will make the requisite effort to recruit James again, most likely led by his close friend Wade, the team's current status doesn't quite fit the veteran's parameters. And the ending was a sweep, the second of James' career in the NBA Finals and perhaps a most unceremonious end to his time in Cleveland.

For Golden State, though, Friday night's victory moved the franchise into rarefied air. "So we'll have plenty of time over the summer to talk about what next year's going to look like and what it's going to take for us to get back to this stage next year".
