LeBron James free agency: When will Cavs star reveal his decision?
Jun 10 2018 by Marjorie Miles
The 6-foot-11 small forward captured the award for the second consecutive year as the Warriors won their third championship in four years.
"To be the best player in the world and to give everything you've got in your 15th season, play all 82 games and carry this team the way he did is a testament to his character", Lue said. "It's the season, it was just an up-and-down season, so many guys got hurt". The environment is incredible.
In 22 games during the Cavs' postseason run, James also averaged nine assists, 9.1 rebounds and a.539 field-goal percentage. Kevin Durant added three blocks of his own, to go along with a 20-point, 12-rebound, 10-assist triple-double.
Durant, who had a playoff career-best 43 points in game three, became only the sixth back-to-back finals MVP.
"This year was pretty insane in general with all that we went through with injuries and the struggles throughout the regular season", said Stephen Curry, who finished second in the voting to repeat victor Kevin Durant for the Finals MVP award.
A majority of Curry's 37 points came from outside the 3-point arc.
The 33-year-old was asked after Friday's game whether if knew if Game 4 was his last as a Cavalier, and while James still is very much unclear about his future, he made note of the most important factor in his upcoming decision.
The Warriors are no shockers to repeat after a sweep this finals and two of the last three titles in their trophy case. The combination of James, Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green will make the Warriors an unbeatable team.

Whisper it, but there is a sense of happiness around the national team that has been conspicuously absent under previous regimes. Speaking in the July 2018 issue of FourFourTwo , Lingard says: "I don't see why we couldn't play together".
The biggest question here that I don't think people are noticing is how long is it going to take before James actually sees this tweet?
On the night, James top scored for his side and left to a standing ovation after playing 41 of the game's first 44 minutes, but it was his least productive performance of the series. "That's the only thing that matters to us".
