Dub Dynasty: Warriors sweep Cavs for second straight title

The nucleus of Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Dario Saric lacks just one thing: experience.

There are obvious potential landing spots, but James, who averaged 34 points, 10 assists and 8.5 rebounds against the Warriors, made it clear that any team coveting him better be prepared to win - everything. Now at the latter stages of his career, James needs to help the team grow. 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.

What happened in the locker room after the worst mental lapse in NBA Finals history was purely speculation until after Golden State swept them out of the Finals.

Right now, the most popular predictions for James' destination have been the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets, with his current team, the Cleveland Cavaliers also strongly in the mix. Mitchell and James' games could clash a bit - neither are pure shooters - but it's a situation worth exploring. But who can think throughout the course of the game?

"I mean, for me, I still have so much to give to the game".

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

The Golden State Warriors are the 6-5 favorites to win the championship.

Only five other players can say they have done this, joining Michael Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal, Hakeem Olajuwon, Kobe Bryant and his opponent from this year's Finals series, Cleveland Cavaliers icon LeBron James. The NBA doesn't need this move, and fans should be disgusted by it.

As for whether he might have gotten the best of the Warriors if he never had taken that swing, we'll never know.

He added that all of the recent title teams with combinations of mega-stars, including his run with the Miami Heat as well as the Boston Celtics, the San Antonio Spurs and the Warriors, have found success in part due to their smarts. He literally carried the Cavs to the Finals when no one outside of Cleveland thought they had a shot of getting there.

While Baylor is considered one of the greatest small forwards in league history, his talent is often largely unheard of nowadays, not exclusively because he failed to win a ring but because he was never a league MVP.

Joel Embiid didn't wait long to start his LeBron James recruitment. They're the clear-cut No. 2 team in the league, and a trio of James, Chris Paul and James Harden would certainly fit the Super Team bill.
