It's completely unfair to question LeBron's legacy after this Finals loss

The Warriors' statement comes less than 24 hours after Clemson visited the White House to honor a national championship win against Alabama in January, in which President Trump said the Tigers "won a championship game for the ages".

Golden State Warriors fans are using the word dynasty to describe this year's championship team.

It was the second parade in three seasons for the Warriors, who wrapped up their latest crown by finishing off a five-game victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday.

ESPN proudly announced Tuesday the 2017 NBA Finals between Golden State and Cleveland on ABC was the most-watched NBA Finals since 1998, according to Nielsen.

This was Durant's second Finals appearance. The commissioner believes in celebrating excellence and using Golden State as a way to raise the bar.

Were those teams as super as this year's Warriors? The streak continued as he scored 30 points in game 3 and went 6-11 from beyond the arc.

Finals MVP Durant - who swapped the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Warriors in search of an elusive championship - has a player option for 2017-18, while star guard Curry is coming off contract.

And it came a year after an epic disappointment when the team blew a 3-1 lead against those same Cavaliers despite the best regular season in National Basketball Association history. The Cleveland Cavaliers also visited a year ago after cinching their championship; Obama also called Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue personally after the win, and noted that he emailed Lebron James personally to congratulate him on the win.

LeBron James' annual postseason blackout on social media ended quickly and with aplomb, from his sharing of a video in which he sang happy birthday to his son to more footage of James looking like Michael Jordan. Not if you ask Oakland. With that said, let's take a look back at the nine best LeBron James NBA Finals performances.
