It would be hilarious, I'm not an NBA fan, but I wish it'd happen.

You're correct. It's never happened.

Nope and Cavs this year won't be the first either.

Too bad Cleveland blew game 3. It could easily be 2-2. But yeah, this series is over. Golden State really missed green when they tried to close out the Cavs last year. This year, chances are that he doesn't miss time, plus they have Durant now.... How can they possibly lose 4 in a row?

It's impossible, how? The crowd was cheering you. As the Freeze passes you the shock sends you tumbling and you eat dirt. The crowd is now laughing at you. The babes at the finish line aren't impressed.

If anyone can find a way, it's NBA refs

To think that the story you offered could have had a whole other ending, if like The Freeze, that poor chump had only worn cleats.

Lol Cavs needed a historic offensive output and shoot 24 3s to beat the Warriors. They won't do that three more times.

It really is isn't it ? I've been a few times myself over the years and it's easily my favorite ever, especially if it's a nice day out. Every dedicated baseball fan has to go there at least once in his life.

Lance Stroll picks up 2 points with a 9th place finish. Not bad for a rookie.

The race was... actually quite lively, and it was by far his best showup. Locking up like crazy at the hairpin might have cost him some seconds in the long run, but the Renault isn't that bad and Hulkenberg is a very underrated driver.

The Williamses were clearly the 5th best car today though. A shame for Massa, however.

He can do whatever. Golden State is just over the top this year with Durant.

This series would have been real interesting if the rosters were the same as last year.

Another phenomenal game by KD and for sure series MVP coming. Will he stay with GSW now that he got his ring?

I am shocked! I say shocked by these results!

Feel bad for Lebron though. Guy could have put up 50+ points and the Cavs still would have lost.

Too many weapons in Oakland.

Big 3 only works if they are all going. Unfortunately for them, Kevin Love is either great or invisible, and he was putrid last night. At least Bosh did the little things when LeBron and Wade were scoring.

Watching the finals really made how far the Raptors are from contention sink in. They aren't built for the 3 and D, small ball modern game at all, which will always screw them against the top teams. That said, I don't see why any team outside of the top 4 would even bother with contending at this point. This is the most star driven pro sport league around by far, if you don't have two future hall of famers on your starting 5 you might as well rebuilt.

When I was growing up, it used to be that the teams were able to keep their superstars, and they were dispersed around the league a bit more. I'm talking about Jordan/pippen on the Bulls, Stockton/Malone on the Jazz, Ewing on the Knicks, Miller on the pacers etc...

I preferred that over what we have over the last several years where teams were trying to form a "big 3" in one summer. Golden state looks to be building an even larger animal than that.

Someone created a Lebrun parody of joining the nwo back when he signed with the heat. It actually feels so true. You have a select few clubs attempting to make that exclusive team that the elite superstars want to join forces at.

With this culture, I don't think the raptors will ever stand much of a chance.

Let's not forget that GS drafted their core (Curry, Thompson, Green) and that core won them their 2015 championship.
