LeBron James Handshake Video Shows Evidence of Something

LeBron James Handshake Video Shows Evidence of Something

The fourth quarter was utterly one-sided as a stunned Cleveland crowd watched in near silence while their team was outclassed up and down the court.

The deciding moment in the game once again came in the third quarter. Looking at this playoff journey, we knew it wasn't going to be as easy as past year. I got a teenage boy, a pre-teen and a little girl right now that wasn't around as well.

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

"Next year, we'll think about that later", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. "It was hard and it gets more and more difficult as you go through".

In addition to the hand injury we just learned about, LeBron also took a finger in the eye from Draymond Green and played with a bloodshot left eye for most of the series.

The Golden State Warriors, who have long stated their desire to be perennial title contenders, moved into full dynasty mode on Friday by capturing their third National Basketball Association championship in four seasons. "But even if Philadelphia doesn't get LeBron, they have enough cap space to add another free agent and there's a chance they can trade (Markelle) Fultz and (Dario) Saric and draft picks and get Kawhi Leonard". James walked to the podium with a cast on and told reporters that he played essentially played the last three games with a broken hand.

Durant averaged 28.8 points in the series, along with 10.8 rebounds and 7.5 assists. And while James said he's still unsure what he will do when he can opt out his contract and hit the free agent market this summer, the 4-time MVP provided his most thorough insight to date regarding his upcoming decision.

According to the outlet, Kerr said that in the past, the Warriors "weren't fearful" of James' shooting ability but they "were fearful of his power and his penetration and his passing".

"Sitting down and considering everything but my family is a huge part of whatever I decide to do in my career and they will continue to be that. They're very different, but however you want to rank them, they're right there together". I've always said that. Then, in Game 3, the Cavaliers led the Warriors 97-96 with 3:11 to go in the fourth and they were outscored 14-5 to finish the game.

82 - For the first time in his illustrious 15-year career, James played in every game of the regular season.

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.

"We all want something that's bigger than ourselves", Durant said of the Warriors.

The Warriors took the first quarter by nine points, and never looked back. And this Golden State run isn't ending any time soon.

The Warriors showed no mercy, with Curry particularly ruthless.
