In the end, the game, and the Cleveland Cavaliers, stood supreme. One that gave the Golden State Warriors an enduring memory of what is, what could have been, and what never will be. The Cavaliers won their first championship ever, , in a gloriously taut game that elevated the game as it depressed the Warriors' belief in their omnipotence.
Kyrie Irving's coldblooded step-back three-pointer with 50 seconds left in an tie freed a state from 52 years of stackable pity and near-paralyzing angst. LeBron James reminded people stupid people, mostly, who should have already recognized it long ago rather than inflate a legacy debate that should never have been that he is a genuinely generational player, and the logical inheritor of a line that runs through Mikan, Russell, Abdul-Jabbar, Johnson, Bird, Jordan and Bryant.
The U. Of course, the No. So let me take a different path of trying to explain this problem. And one other thing, how does Gregg Popovich escape unscathed?

Apparently Pop the Great is above all that. Much is being made these days about the players in the NBA gaining more control over their careers than ever before. I think fans have become more sympathetic to the players lately for several reasons. And players, of course, are perceived as employees — just like you and me.
Working stiffs, you know. This, of course, in an era where a lot of non-basketball-playing people have very little to say about their own employment. I see a lot of young people exiting college these days with very few options. And in order to get a job they want, they are faced with very difficult choices about relocation, salary or — in many cases — taking a position they are over-qualified for at a low salary.
Sometimes, too, they are forced to transfer to another location in order to keep their job. And if they are lucky enough to get a two- or three-year contract, it can often be voided if they underperform or get on the wrong side of a new boss. Not so with NBA players.

They get every penny of every dollar owed them, no matter what. Meanwhile, working conditions for NBA players are collectively bargained. Their union is stronger than yours, I bet, and we will see that in the next CBA negotiation — which promises to be contentious. Well, they have. In previous eras, players had the power to have their contracts renegotiated or just torn up and replaced with new ones. If you had a bad year, you just sat back quietly and collected your guaranteed money. What choice did the team have? I get that.
The big markets -- and the superstars who want to play in them -- already have enough advantages. At 35 years old, Anthony is certainly no longer in his prime, but he does have some gas left in the tank.

There were rumblings Carmelo would join the LA Lakers last season. Neither did a possible return to the Rockets or Bulls.
A major reason for Anthony not being employed is due to the perception that he is unwilling to accept a lesser role in his mind. He had a great career. Each of the past two seasons, both Lillard and McCollum have seemed to actively recruit Anthony to Portland, especially in when Anthony was on the New York Knicks.
Damian Lillard had a lot of excellent moments over the course of this past season, but we were treated to a look into his future way back on Oct. Lillard added a bunch of things to his bag over the course of last summer, and those were on full display against the Magic in just the fourth game of the young season. It was apparent that Lillard was craftier around the hoop, with his up-and-under move becoming more difficult to contest.
Augustin received the brunt of Lillard's ire. That was aided by the fact that the younger Magic big men were not ready to defend Lillard confidently. When the Magic switched Jerian Grant onto Lillard, it didn't do much help. In the end, size didn't sway the Blazers star off his path of destruction in Central Florida. Combined with excellent passing and much-needed defensive rebounding, Lillard's point outburst was one of his best games of the season. Check out the third video in our mini-series produced this summer where we wind back the clock and dissect some of the best moments of the magical Blazers season.
July 15, , the G. T was born in Oakland, California. Not to mention the countless game winners he has hit along the way, including two series ending buzzer beaters in the playoffs.
