James - tipped to enter free agency - came out with four minutes remaining in the fourth quarter before reigning champions the Warriors completed a sweep in the National Basketball Association finals with a 108-85 victory on Friday.

Just like last year, the Warriors are now up 3-0 over the Cavaliers and will look to do one better on last year's Finals by completing the sweep in Game 4. Though it sweeter to celebrate the championship in ORACLE Arena, the Warriors have to close out the series tonight.

Cleveland fans seem to feel differently about James' possible departure this time around. "Any question that kind of talks about the future and whatnot, you don't want to cheat the moment". Durant had failed to win against a LeBron James Heat team in 2012.

The Warriors finished second in the Western Conference with a 58-24 record this season without really trying.

"That's probably the longest shot of it happening", Sherman said of Miami.

Game 3 was the ideal example of the discrepancy between the two sides, where one squad had to play at their individual and collective peak to have a chance, and the other survived even when two of its stars-Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson-misfired all night.

As is the Warriors' tradition, they flipped the switch offensively to make a third-quarter comeback, outscoring Cleveland 31-23 in the period to take their first lead in the game. Nash ranks seventh despite being one of the best ball handlers and playmakers of all time. "I don't even know how or why other than being around a lot of superstars".

It was Durant's 28th consecutive playoff game with 20 or more points. It all comes down to the reasoning behind their ranking compared to others; they had no rings.

Kerr said the only thing that ever matters to Curry is winning titles. If James leaves town, Love knows there is a possibility he will be traded.

But there's been recent turmoil in Philadelphia's front office. If anyone thought the Warriors had it too easy this season (Golden State's players, coaches, and executives would vehemently disagree), there's no doubt 2018-19 will prove more hard.
