LeBron James On Hate Crime Vandalism, 'Being Black In America Is Tough'

Since Kyrie Irving put a 3-pointer in Steph Curry's mouth to win the title for Cleveland previous year.

That series turned when Green was suspended for Game 5 and James and Kyrie Irving took over from there.

"Our goal isn't to make everyone say, 'Hey Lebron is the greatest player of all time, '" Green said. "But at the end of the day winning a championship is winning a championship". "It might just take a half of basketball to get it going". As an underdog after finally bringing a banner home to Cleveland, James is playing with house money. James won his first title in 2012 with Miami in a five-game series over Durant and the Thunder. His inside game is humming as well, evidenced by his.592 shooting percentage on 2-point field goals.


James, who also gave his opinion on race in sports and America just a month ago during the Adam Jones situation in Major League Baseball in Boston, said that it's a prevalent topic in the country, and isn't going away anytime soon. A championship is always welcome as we know from past year, but wouldn't it be nice to celebrate with a win in front of the home crowd? I especially liked that Kerr replaced Mark Jackson's offense which had previously strangled the Warriors, so much so that the same players and team that won the championship and then 73 games with Kerr had been only middle of the pack in offense under Jackson. Like boxers throwing punches in bunches, Golden State can flurry in a hurry, challenging the scoreboard operator to keep pace.

"I'm one of so many play-by-play guys who idolized Marv, and he has always been and always will be the greatest basketball play-by-play voice of all time", Breen said.

James will push Golden State to the limit. But there he is, averaging 32.5 points in the playoffs, second-highest in his career. The final stats show the Warriors outshot the Cavaliers 37.3 percent to 32.9 percent on 3-pointers a year ago, but don't be misled. Sometimes the team I wind up rooting for is different than who I expected to want to win - but in every instance my competitive juices start flowing and I become at least a temporary fan of one team.


"I've had a week off", Thompson said.

The two-time MVP will be accompanied by his brother Seth Curry, a point guard for the Dallas Mavericks.

The Warriors (12-0) are the first team to enter The Finals without a playoff loss since the Lakers in 2001 (11-0). By the time officers arrived at the home, the racial slur was covered up by property management, police said.
