Show Recap: June 8, 2018 (Live from Cleveland at First Energy Stadium; 90 minute show)

Opener: LeBron looking back at their 2016 Finals win and then the Warriors adding KD from yesterday’s media availability:

“So they win a championship. Then we play them and we come back from 3-1 and we beat them. But that was the best regular season — probably the best team I had ever played against. They go 73-9, and then you add one of the best players that the NBA has ever seen.”

Today’s Panel:

Commitment; Celtics have reason to worry over Kyrie?

Via Chris Mannix of Yahoo! Sports:

“I think they’re scared. I think they’re scared and should be scared to some degree of Kyrie Irving walking in 2019. I know he had a great year, but you know there are people in Cleveland that will tell you that the Knicks should be considered a real threat for Kyrie Irving. Because Kyrie had talked about it, about playing with the Knicks with some players in that Cleveland locker room from what I was told.”

“You know things can change. Obviously, you go to Boston and you become the face of the franchise. You’re on a winning team. Maybe the mindset has changed significantly?”

Why haven’t Cavs been able to close gap on Warriors?

Harder to scheme for: Curry or Durant?


LeBron shades Portland for not drafting KD:

“Kevin Durant was great at 23. As you get older and older, your game gets more and more seasoned. But everyone knew that. That’s Kevin Durant. So it’s not like you would think that he would fizzle out. You knew he was built for greatness from the time that he was drafted. I mean, everybody knew that besides Portland, I guess. Sorry, Portland. Sorry.”
