NBA Championship Odds: Warriors Betting Favorites, LeBron Decision Looms

Dub Dynasty: Warriors sweep Cavs for second straight title How Should LeBron James Approach Free Agency? Kobe Bryant Weighs In
Tamara Craig | 11 June, 2018, 16:59

As the Golden State Warriors celebrated their second straight NBA Championship, and third title in four years, late on Friday night, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James made a startling revelation during the post game press conference.

The Cavaliers have to make the No. 8 pick before being eligible to deal it away because they already traded their selection to the Los Angeles Lakers in early February along with point guard Isaiah Thomas and forward Channing Frye in exchange for guard Jordan Clarkson and center Larry Nance Jr. The futures of Kevin Love and head coach Tyronn Lue could be elsewhere if James leaves the wine and gold. And perhaps more importantly, is the fact that they'll give LeBron free reign to call the shots as a player just as he did in Cleveland.

LeBron James is being honored as a gamer - on and off the floor.

When speaking with Bobby Marks on The Woj Pod, Wojnarowski stated that Paul didn't opt in to his player option last off-season and helped facilitate a deal to the Rockets in order to take a discount this off-season.

Despite willing one of the poorer Cavs sides to the Finals, James was unable to make a fourth consecutive meeting between the two sides a competitive one as many believe he will now join a side capable of beating Steve Kerr's men.

"I still want to be in championship mode, " the 33-year-old said following his eighth straight National Basketball Association finals appearance.

U.S. should stop detaining migrants, separating children: U.N.
Of the 300 children that have been there longer than 72 hours, nearly half are under the age of 12, according to the report. In April, Attorney General Jeff Sessions gave direction for all instances of illegal border crossings to be prosecuted.

"If he doesn't go to Philadelphia, I would raise Philadelphia and lower Boston and Boston would be the Eastern Conference favorite", Sherman said. "Always wanted to win here".

Wade, who won two National Basketball Association titles alongside James with the Miami Heat, pointed out how no matter which team he joins, they will likely always make the Finals and that it's a "lifestyle thing" at this point. I think it's more special when you do it with people who support you and love you, care about what you do as a ball player. "I mean, we all know that", Lue said.

Then if you start looking at his Finals record, his last three losses were far from an indictment of his play.

At the moment the list of suitors is limited, but it could grow before July as teams position themselves to acquire one of the game's most transcendent forces. "I think we love to see each other succeed".

My example for pride might be a bit different, but bear with me. At this point, it's hard to imagine that the Thunder would move on from the 29-year-0ld given that he's in the prime of his career and one of the top players in the league.

"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.
