"He told us at the beginning of the year, all that we have to go through".

"The fact that they got here surprised me, actually", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

"When we came here three years ago in the first meeting, we weren't fearful of his shot".

However, and there's the rub, there were some differences - and we're not just talking President Donald Trump disinviting both the Warriors and the Cavs to the White House. But myself and D-Wade and Bosh, you know, UD (Udonis Haslem), Mike Miller had a few injuries, but (Mario) Chalmers was available, and pretty much our team, we were pretty solid as far as being injury - not being injury-prone.

Also, it's highly unlikely that the Cavaliers will consider trading LeBron James for a package centered on Hassan Whiteside. James had two MRIs during the series and iced the hand after games. I've got two boys that play the game as well.

There was also plenty of reaction to James announcing he hurt his hand punching a locker-room blackboard after Game 1 (yes, the J.R. Smith game) and "pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand".

James can opt out of his contract after this season and there's an increasing belief that he will choose to leave the Cavaliers in search of a better supporting cast - which he could potentially find with the Philadelphia 76ers, Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets or Boston Celtics.

"I mean, I have no idea at this point", James said later.

"Not for me to answer that question", he said.

Democrats hope to flip several of the House seats held by California Republicans so that their party can take control of Congress. Thanks to the state's "jungle primary" system, the top two vote-getters, regardless of party, advance to the general election.

"I hope he stays", Tyronn Lue said.

James, playing his eighth consecutive finals, scored 23 points, grabbed seven rebounds and passed off eight assists on Friday but fell to 3-6 in the finals for his career. Known as "Wilt the Stilt", the athletic, 7ft-1in Chamberlain led the league in scoring his first seven seasons, shattering National Basketball Association records and changing the style of play forever.

As he faded, so too did his teammates - with ESPN commentator Mark Jackson lamenting the lack of effort as the Warriors snatched repeated offensive rebounds.

"The Bay Area allows me to be who I am, as a city, to just blend in, and the team allows me to do the same thing", Durant said.

In truth, the Cavaliers were never in the contest - and only very briefly held leads, and never by more than a point and never after midway through the second quarter.

Take a look at some of the jokes below!

Additionally, Love had his best shooting season with the Cavaliers, knocking down 45.8 percent of his attempts from the field and 41.5 percent from three-point range.

Durant scored 608 points in this year's postseason, the most ever by a Warriors player, passing Stephen Curry (594 points in 2015).
