Cleveland announces Kevin Love's status for Game 1

As you can clearly see from the image, Cleveland had seven players on the court with time remaining on the clock in a 4-point Game 7 in the Finals.

Though Green has played well for the Cavs, coach Lue noted that Love would start against the Warriors if he clears protocol. Durant averaged 35.2 points per game in the Finals while James scored 33.6.

Obviously, Golden State Warriors fans were unhappy with the result of the Finals, as they had just posted the best regular season record of all-time, and - as any fan would - thought they would run away with the Larry O'Brien trophy. Although Andre Iguodala missed Game 1, there's still an outrageous amount of weapons on the Warriors' roster. They were forced to come back from a 3-2 deficit and also win Game 7 on the road. "Just being able to cope with it and understand that there's a lot of different people that have reached out since yesterday, I guess, and told me they experienced some of the same things", Lue said. The introspective 34-year-old won't allow his mind to go there because he believes it will stunt his recovery. "It being one of the worst losses, got to kind of put it behind you now".

"It took to the second question of my first media availability (of the 2018 Finals), so I'm pretty sure that narrative's going to take life, as it has since 2015", Curry said.

Potentially set to play his final handful of games as a member of the Cavaliers, it's rather interesting that James would speak so candidly about the Irving situation and a perceived rift with Cleveland's front office.

James credited Warriors' coach Steve Kerr for keeping a team with so many superstars so harmonious. However, if we have learned anything in the last 15 years, it's that we should never count out LeBron James. You don't get to the Finals with one man, no matter how good that one man is. The same goes for starting center Clint Capela, who will be a restricted free agent - it would be a shock if Houston didn't match any offer sheet he signed with another team, even if it approaches the max.

James called it a "huge play" and said "I knew I was outside the charge line".
