Kevin Love hopes to stay with Cavaliers

LeBron James and Kobe Bryant

"The one thing I've always done is considered my family - especially where my boys are at this point in their age". Fresh off an unexpected run to the Eastern Conference Finals where it took the Cavaliers to seven games, Boston will have its two best players back next year when Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward return from season-ending injuries.

"I still want to be in championship mode", LeBron said after his team was eliminated from the NBA Finals, echoing the conventional wisdom that he wants to chase another ring.

The addition of LeBron James will undeniably make the Rockets a more competitive team next season, but bringing him to Houston won't be as easy as anyone thinks. I don't have an answer for you right now as far as that....

Signing LeBron could also convince Kawhi Leonard to stay in Texas and league sources quoted by NBC suggested that Popovich is already working to get the 2014 NBA Finals MVP to sign a five-year super-max extension.

They have now won two NBA Finals in a row and three of the last four. He said he takes inspiration from the likes of Kobe and LeBron, but at the same time, he feels like it's harder to shine when you have good players around you.

So the obvious question going into the offseason is what can anyone do to unseat them in the coming years?

You have to be over the luxury tax three out of the prior four years to incur the repeater, and Golden State has only been in the tax for the 2017-18 season.

Over in the western conference, the Los Angeles Lakers have created cap space to lure two top free agents to town. I should be making more money if all that's on me. He was going to play in the series anyway, and he didn't want to let on that he was hurt if he could avoid it.

The early favorites to land James look like the 76ers due to their young talent and easier road to the NBA Finals in the East, but the Rockets are going to go after him, so they will be a team to watch too.

"At the end of the day, for me, staying around the game, being around the game will be something I'll probably do for the rest of my life, either while I'm playing for this later stage of my career, advising people in the National Basketball Association or whatever the case may be", James said. That means they'd have until 2020-21 to figure something out, at which time it's possible retirement or a trade of one of their players could factor as a way for them to duck the repeater. I understand talent. I know talent.

Now make no mistake, I'm an unabashed LeBron apologist. Within minutes, people across the world had tweeted more than 100,000 times about James and what would happen to him next.

ESPN's Brian Windhorst says that James had multiple MRI's to make sure that the hand wasn't broken and that James had to wear a soft cast on the hand during off-days.
