Who can neglect the 2016 NBA Finals? The Cleveland Cavaliers have been down three video games to 1 in opposition to the defending champion Golden State Warriors. Questions swirling over LeBron James’ legacy and whether or not or not he would ever surpass Michael Jordan as the best all time. Then the unthinkable occurred and LeBron led the Cavs to a comeback and finally received the championship.
In the most recent episode “More Than An Athlete,” an eight-part collection from ESPN, LeBron stated the evening he received the championship, he knew it was a legacy-cementing second.
“That one proper there made me the best participant all time,” James defined, including:

LeBron continued by speaking about his idol, Jordan and the way simply being in comparison with a participant that caliber is a rare feeling.
According to ESPN, the documentary LeBron has seen LeBron discuss every part from his childhood, to politics, and the strikes he is made in his profession.
Kevin Durant recently flew to New York to partake in fellow C.J. McCollum’s podcast Pull Up with CJ McCollum. The Portland Trail Blazers star uses the podcast as a keep busy-operative to pursue his passion outside basketball: journalism. Don’t be surprised if several years down the road, when his career is well and over, to see C.J. McCollum working as a personality within the realm sports media.
On the latest episode Pull Up with CJ McCollum, Kevin Durant sensed it was the right occasion to quell any tension over the DeMarcus Cousins’ signing. McCollum has been an outspoken critic “SuperTeam”-building experiments, and reached to Cousins following his move to voice his displeasure, personally. The exchange began as McCollum said, “You know how I felt, bruh, I was hot.”
Durant tried to level things with rhetorical statements, a frustrating turn in conversation for his Western Conference counterpart. C.J. placed himself in the shoes a bored NBA fan by stating that a lack parity in the NBA is hurting the product. At this point that Kevin Durant lost his friendly demeanor and started serving notice to the 8th seed. The exchange went a little like this:
Durant: “You know you guys aren’t gonna win a championship.”
McCollum: “We have the team, we have the capabilities, anything is possible. We can win a championship bro.”
Durant: “I mean let’s be honest. I like ya’ll two (McCollum and Damian Lillard), you’re hard to step. But I mean, come on. You can’t be upset about this.”
As soon as Kevin singled out both Lillard and McCollum as the only two catalysts on the Blazer’s squad, C.J. brought the discussion back to his sour feelings about DeMarcus Cousins. McCollum and Lillard have been as active as any two players in the NBA, in their recruitment potential free agents. Incidentally, the sour note proved costly, as Durant would eventually have the last laugh in telling C.J. to “get out your feelings” and not “worry about what goes on at the top things.”
The NBA Championship passes through Golden State until further notice.
