Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love fires up a jumper over the outstretched arm of Golden State Warriors forward Jordan Bell in the first half of Game 4 of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland Friday night.
One year and two months from now, he'll be a freshman. That's how I was brought up as a basketball player, as being one of the guys.
Other possible destinations are the Boston Celtics, the San Antonio Spurs, the Miami Heat and dare I say it, the Warriors.
"I get asked all the time about MJ, LeBron, and it's such a hard question to ask", Kerr said following Game 4. But I like to be here. "Always wanted to win here". The Trail Blazers have a great guard duo in CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard, but it needs another option to topple the likes of Golden State and Houston. My responsibility is to whatever team I play for.
But there is history with the Cavaliers, who won the 2016 championship with James leading the way.
If the Cavaliers want to rebuild the roster to better compete with the Warriors than they have in each of the last two years, which resulted in a five-game series loss in the 2017 NBA Finals and this year's four-game sweep, trades would be the only way to do so. "I think we love to see each other succeed".
Rafael Nadal wins record-extending 11th French Open
Nadal came in looking slightly more vulnerable than he did a year ago , in which he lost only 35 games in claiming the title. Thiem was under the cosh, saving four break points in the first game of the third set before Nadal inevitably broke for 2-1.
The possibility remains that Cleveland could retool and make another run, but doing so would require some serious creativity. I bet they would look for a first round pick in that trade.
"We would make Philadelphia the favorite", he said. Mitchell and James' games could clash a bit - neither are pure shooters - but it's a situation worth exploring. They just think that you go out, and, 'Oh, LeBron, you're bigger and faster and stronger than everybody, you should drive every single time and you should dunk every single play and you should never get exhausted, never.' Like it's a video game and you went on the options and you turned down fatigue all the way to zero and injuries all the way down to zero.
So is this end in Cleveland? "I've got a teenage boy, a pre-teen and a little girl that wasn't around".
"Sitting down and considering everything but my family is a huge part of whatever I decide to do in my career and they will continue to be that".
"When you have as goal and you're able to accomplish that goal, it made me even more hgungry to win championships", James said.
