For the third time in the last decade, James's free agency will be the biggest off-season storyline in the National Basketball Association. There were signs to help back up James' belief that he is able to trust his teammates. So it won't be Golden State or Cleveland going. I don't like the mood that I'm in right now. "When you're down like this versus a team like this, there's no good feeling". "I don't feel good (about) how I feel right now, not (about) how I feel about the rest of the series".
The Cavaliers may be in a dark place.
LeBron James and Stephen Curry might have opposing goals this week in Cleveland, but they agree on one thing.
The Cavaliers, sparked by reserve Rodney Hood, closed to 83-81 entering the fourth quarter and battled the Warriors into the final seconds. One thing about J.C., he's confident. "The guys are engaged and locked in". If Cleveland had called a timeout without any left, a technical foul would have been assessed giving the Warriors a potentially game-winning free throw opportunity.
It's easy to understand Lue's confidence.
Anything James can draw from three consecutive years of falling behind 0-2?
Cleveland has endured injuries, trades, tragedy and drama for months.
With two days between Games 1 and 2 thanks to a previously scheduled concert at Oracle Arena - one more reason to dislike Maroon 5 - there was plenty of time for the analysis to move past tactics and strategy and land on more existential concerns. There's no denying their toughness.
Dennis Rodman will be in Singapore for USA-North Korea summit
A USA advance team was spotted at the Capella Hotel last week meeting with North Korean officials in preparation for the summit. Sentosa may be a holiday hotspot, but experts say security won't be a problem at the proposed venue - Capella Hotel .

He handles the ball for us a lot on offense. "We understand how hard it is to win in this building". Kerr said Iguodala would be upgraded to questionable for Game 3 . "So we're used to that.

The summit will be held in the Capella Hotel on the exclusive resort of Sentosa, a tiny Singaporean island covered in golf courses that was once a pirate hangout. "We'll see what happens".
"We've been very persistent and very resilient throughout this whole season, no matter what has been going on", James said. "So just get back to work tomorrow and figure out a better game plan".
As a result of four straight Finals matchups, both teams have little left to hide from one another.
Defending champion Golden State has seized command of the NBA Finals as the series shifts to Cleveland, where the Cavaliers must continue their home playoff magic to sustain any title hopes.
Cleveland Cavaliers star James, who has previously criticised Trump, has made it clear that the winners of the NBA Finals won't be attending the White House, either.
The Cavaliers had been 8-1 at home in the playoffs with eight wins in a row since losing their first-round opener to Indiana.
Just the sight of Warriors forward Draymond Green should be enough to push the decibel readings inside the building to unsafe levels.
"That margin for error is so little, so thin against them, I think in some cases you have to be ideal", Love said.
"He puts guys in position to be great". "I just took the shot". "This is the last team in the world you want to relax against". Now we've got to come back and do the same thing'. "It started with the first game of the IN series".
Another outspoken critic of Trump, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he longed for the day when the White House visit was again a celebration of athletic achievement. Kerr has been a vocal opponent of Trump since the president first took office.
"We've got to come out with a sense of urgency to start", Warriors forward Kevin Durant said. For much of the NBA's history, what any individual player has said during the Finals hasn't necessarily been a big deal. Towards the end of the video, James is seen asking Ty Lue if the team had any timeouts.
