"Pretty sure the way we handled things a year ago, kinda staying consistent with that".
This trade would only work if the Cavaliers knew LeBron James was coming back, as it would add a proven veteran and a young big man to a team in need of some changes.
Here's Kevin Love on that idea: "I mean, I don't know what he had at that point, but he ended the game with 51-8-8, so he did a lot". Before answering the next unrelated question, James went back and tried to prevent the narrative from turning into he doesn't believe the Cavaliers can come back. "I agree with 'Bron".
It has been a long-standing tradition for championship teams to visit the White House, but there has been some controversy since President Donald Trump took the office. If they don't, the noise regarding James leaving Cleveland for a new team will likely only grow louder.
James said he was just going over what transpired in those closing seconds: George Hill missing a free throw, Smith "dribbling the ball out", and Draymond Green committing an uncalled lane violation. Numerous people responded to Trump, including Eagles players, noting among other things that few players were going to attend, anyway, and that no Eagles player kneeled during the playing of the national anthem last season. I don't think there's anything Miami can do, but obviously because he was there and brought them two championships.
It's quite understandable that he's upset about the Cavaliers' 2-0 deficit, but it's also interesting that he's still confident heading into the rest of the series.
