Twitter is Roasting LeBron James For His Post-Game 'Super Team' Comment

LeBron's Legacy Is Tarnished

LeBron's Legacy Is Tarnished

Golden State used a 28-4 second-quarter run to take charge - just after it appeared Durant should have been called for a third foul on a basket by James - and got to celebrate right at home in Oakland surrounded by a deafening home crowd waving yellow rally towels and holding up phones to shoot video and photos as the final minute of the clock ticked away.

Every championship round has a victor and a loser. I guess that just goes to show Barry O could watch these games a little more closely than he did over the last eight years. Here are the winners and losers from the 2016-17 NBA Finals.

Kevin Durant is having a hell of a week.

It validated the notion of Warriors general manager Bob Myers, who risked what he had built counting on Durant to be the final piece in building a juggernaut. If anything, the existence of this Golden State super team is the best indicator of where LeBron stands among the all-time greats.

"The way he embraced the opportunity in the finals was unbelievable", he added.

Think the franchise is proud of Durant and the Warriors' championship win?

The Warriors blew a 3-1 lead in the Finals previous year and lost the title to the Cleveland Cavaliers after posting the best regular-season record in National Basketball Association history. He was acquired for these playoffs, and specifically the Finals against LeBron and the Cavs. "I bet with the homies, one of the homies back there is sick, he can't even get home". Durant had 39 points on 14-of-20 shooting.

JVG had himself two signature highlights from these Finals. They managed to come back from 3-1 a year ago, but this time it was different.

That pushed Golden State to add Durant as a free agent last July and the results have been devastating.

"The best player in the world is Michael Jordan, after that it's Kobe", said the rapper.

Still, it doesn't sound as though James has lost any confidence after becoming the first player to average a triple-double in the NBA Finals.

Dan Gilbert paid a bunch of money to bring LeBron back to Cleveland and assemble a championship team and all he got at the championship parade was a half-hearted thumbs up from the King past year. And while the Cavs still should be the favorites in the Eastern Conference next season, James knows the team can't be idle while the Warriors continue to dominate. It might be a pretty large sum of money poured into a team that might not deliver another championship as Golden State ushers in a new era of dominance. "He's had an fantastic career, but he just took it to the next level", coach Steve Kerr said.
