Golden State-Cleveland had the best ratings since Michael Jordan and the Bulls in 1998.James has a personal stake in saying he didn't start the super team trend.

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green appears to be taking some shots at the Cleveland Cavaliers.

As blasphemous of a question as that may seem, Durant's primary assignment throughout this series was to do what he does best, put the ball in hole. This is amid the trend in the National Basketball Association when LeBron James joined Miami Heat with All Star players such as Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade in 2012, where James got his first championship.

Everybody for the last 10 years knew how good he was, but until you break through and win that first championship, there's always still something there.

The Cavs trio also addressed Green's jab at James' new bald look, with the three-time champ denying it was the loss to the Warriors that inspired the change.
