Asked if there was a "narrative" - his word - for the 2017 Finals, and he said "yeah, win championships". Check out the definitive 2017 NBA Finals on-feet guide and stay tuned for more updates throughout the NBA Finals right here on Sneaker News. James won his first title in 2012 with Miami in a five-game series over Durant and the Thunder.
Durant has often been regarded as the second best player in the league behind LeBron James.
However, the 26-year-old who was undrafted out of Belmont is a part of what might just be the best team ever.
And Warriorscoach Steve Kerr agrees. If you go down position by position though, the Cleveland Cavaliers are actually the more talented team.
He's been mentioned on a level with Michael Jordan - I've chimed in on that subject - and for the most part it's deserved.
The Cavs have won 9 straight road playoff games and they are now leading playoff team in field goal percentage (50.7%), three-pointers made per game (14.6), three-point percentage (43%) and offensive rating (120.7). In fact, while LeBron was going through his unusual mood in Cleveland against the Celtics, the guy who finished off Boston was Kyrie Irving.
"We've had a great season to this point, a great playoff run". They went on to lose the series. These two met twice during the season, with the home team winning and covering the spread in both instances. Thompson's shot has been off in the postseason, hitting just about 38 percent from the field, but his defense is probably more important than his offense now anyway as the usual primary defender against Kyrie Irving.
"I've had a week off", Thompson said. "But it was a reward because when you set out a goal and you're able to achieve that reward or achieve that goal, like all of us, then it's rewarding and you feel good about it". When those shots are falling, it opens things up for James, giving him the option to drive to the basket or post up.
But overall, Jones is tipping Warriors to win in five games.
Remember the shot that clinched the finals in Game 7 a year ago? The Cavs haven't been far behind, losing only in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference final to Boston.
So-called super teams are easier to create if players are willing to take less money than they're worth.
The question will become: Is he more likely to leave if the Warriors win or if they lose? Chalk that up to all the blowouts. He finished at the basket easily , drilled pull-up jumpers and stretched his range out beyond the 3-point line.
The disallowed goal started a nightmare first period for the Predators that proved costly in the close affair. Nashville coach Peter Laviolette's system counts on his defensemen to jump up in the play and contribute.

I'll absolutely take a fast auto any day over one that's trotting around in the back that's going to finish the race. Foyt Enterprises, and this year, to Andretti Autosport, the best equipment he has steered in the series thus far.
In his four-year sojourn in Miami, James got there four times and won two National Basketball Association titles. The Cavaliers will start the series on the road at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif., on June 1.
He played just 18 minutes in game two while playing through the lingering pain. "There's not much more you could ask for". Thompson suggested the incident stemmed from the fact that James got his feelings hurt by Green's trash talking.
If that's the case, it might not be until Finals that there is an opponent with the confidence to stand up to the Warriors. That pace of domination by Golden State likely can not be maintained as the series heads to Texas, nor does it need to be.
They split the first two, and it wouldn't surprise anyone to see either team take home the Larry O'Brien trophy this year. Steve Kerr continues to deal with complications from a back surgery but hopes to be ready to coach in the NBA Finals .
