Who needs $200M when there are championships to be won?

It is a tradition in the United States that professional sports teams visit the White House as the Chicago Cubs did in January when they spent time with President Barack Obama after capturing their 2016 Major League Baseball title.

Coach Tyronn Lue said he "broke down" and could not even finish his speech in the locker room. Nobody wanted him. A lot of people didn't expect these guys to be where they are today.

But a stone-faced LeBron James refused to be drawn on his plans.

"It has been a insane year for me", Durant said. That's the only thing I didn't do. It's about winning. I think he knew that.

James has taken his teams, in Miami and now Cleveland, to seven consecutive finals. And if Hart were smart, he won't bet against Durant and the Golden State Warriors any time soon. That remained steady with Durant in the fold, allowing Golden State to outscore opponents by 12.1 net points per 100 possessions, making them the most dominant team in the National Basketball Association last season. "Pretty much all their big-name guys are in their 20s and they don't show any signs of slowing down".

Even LeBron, who sparked the super team trend, hasn't played with the kind of star power the Warriors had during their five-game ousting of the Cavs. Two of them are superstars: Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant. James turned to the officials, saying he had been fouled. Me and KD had a conversation, along with Draymond and Klay and Andre a year ago before he even showed up that that was kind of the identity of who we are as a team.

In view of that, Cleveland will be searching for answers in the off-season.

Navalny 'detained' before Moscow protest
But Monday's protests could demonstrate that it has significant support throughout the vast country. On his website, Navalny urged his supporters to take to the streets and oppose Putin's government.

Now, the Warriors will face a frenzy of free-agent moves this summer to try to keep as many stars and brilliant backups as possible around for another run in 2018. A player leaving is highly unlikely at this point, especially since they are coming off their second successful championship pursuit in three seasons.

Those are the questions that Cleveland need to address.

Like most before them, the Jazz fell prey to the Warriors' length, 3-point shooting and suffocating defense, losing the series without a single win.

Durant only scored five points during the surge, but his presence drew so much attention from the Cavaliers defense that open shots were created for his teammates.

Myers realizes adding Durant might not have worked so well with anyone but the Warriors.

The Golden State Warriors steamrolled their way through the regular season, then became the first team in league history to enter the NBA Finals 12-0 and the first team in playoff history to win 15 straight games. "I've got nothing but love and respect for him and I can't wait to compete against him again next season".
