LeBron James on Warriors dynasty: 'If I become an owner, I'm going to try to sign everybody'

By Marla Ridenour Published: June 8, 2017

LeBron James has made no secret of the fact that ownership of an NBA team might be a goal when he leaves the game.

So with the Cavaliers down 3-0 to the Golden State Warriors going into Friday night’s Game 5 of the NBA Finals, James seems to have coped with the fact that he could be on the losing end of another dynasty.

“It’s just part of my calling to just go against teams in the midst of a dynasty,” James said Thursday at Quicken Loans Arena. “This has been the best team in our league the last three years. They won a championship, and last year it was the greatest regular-season team we had played, probably one of the best postseason teams that everybody's ever seen as well, but we were just able to overcome that. And they're playing like one of the best teams once again.

NBA Finals: Cavaliers turn attention to Game 4 as Warriors aim for a series sweep

By Michael Beaven Published: June 8, 2017

CLEVELAND: Within an hour after a tough loss on Wednesday in Game 3 of the 2017 NBA Finals, Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving faced the media feeling a little chilly.

“I apologize if I’m shivering,” Irving said as sat on the podium. “I just got out of the cold tub. So don’t think I’m like getting sensitive on you guys. Just pretty cold.”

Irving and LeBron James both gave valiant efforts, but the defending champion Cavs came up short in a 118-113 loss at Quicken Loans Arena to the Golden State Warriors, who are 15-0 in this years playoffs.

Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry combined to score the game’s final 11 points as the Cavs watched a 113-107 lead with 3:10 to go in the fourth quarter evaporate.

Notes, quotes and observations after the Cavaliers fell 118-113 to the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of the NBA Finals Wednesday night at Quicken Loans Arena. The Warriors lead the series 3-0 and will attempt to close out the series and capture the championship Friday night at the Q, where they celebrated in 2015.

 

1. The Cavs made history in 2016, becoming the first team to overcome a 3-1 Finals deficit and capture the championship. But the chances of becoming the first to win a title when down 3-0 seems like a challenge that even the best player in the world can’t handle.
