The Warriors are at another level.
The Warriors are in the same scenario just like last year's NBA Finals.
And that massive, "unfair" talent advantage the Warriors have been accused of having?
The Cavaliers can offer James the biggest deal: 5 years and more than $200 million.
The Golden State Warriors are champs again.
Who will be the team's next general manager? After all, that's what he has been tasked to do - literally - by team owner Joe Lacob.
James wasn't making excuses for Cleveland's postseason pickle because if not for a reversed official's call or J.R. Smith's brain-lock in the closing seconds of regulation in Game 1 or Durant's brilliance in Game 3, the Cavs could be leading the series. "I don't need to be entertained".
"K.D. has been incredible these last two years, especially in the finals and so deserving of back-to-back finals MVPs", Curry said. That's all it is. They understand when they get on the court with me or if they check up with me, they know what it is. To Myers, it seems so precarious.
To which Curry said, "Amen", in so many words. "Sometimes good luck, sometimes bad luck - it's a fast-moving league". Opinions will always be split about whether he's better than Jordan but it's unquestionable that he is one of the greatest players the National Basketball Association will ever see. There are seven other possible destinations that make sense, with the Los Angeles Lakers topping the list, mostly because they have the cap space to sign James as well as ink another max player like Paul George.
"Sure, guys have proven they can win so you want to keep that group together", Myers said. Cleveland star LeBron James, who denied Durant a title when Miami beat Oklahoma City in 2012, raves about Durant's game.
The Finals championship is between one Eastern and one Western Conference team. Although Curry is a two-time NBA MVP, he has yet to win that honor in the Finals despite scoring 37 points in the Warriors' Game 4 win and averaging 25.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 6.7 assists.
Although James may have dropped to 3-6 in the finals, it hasn't diminished his pursuit of winning a fourth title or slaying this Golden State goliath, a monster of a team he never imagined getting in his way when he made his OH homecoming after playing four years in Miami. "MVP!" as he went to the bench after congratulating some of the Warriors. It's hard to see the Warriors beating them in five easy games in next year's playoffs, should they meet. So wherever he signs this offseason don't blame him for his choice, blame media for forcing him to make this choice, and that goes for any player deciding on a team that they choose to play for in the next few years.
No matter how you look at it, the competition is closing in on the Warriors. Their ultimate goal was to get "clicking like Golden State" when it mattered most: the postseason.
Eventually, another team will finish the job the Rockets could not last month - they will knock off these "unfair" Warriors. You don't just have to assemble a roster that can challenge Golden State, but you have to do it at close to their price.
