LeBron James headed into Game 7 trying to prevent another finals letdown, but players like Elgin Baylor and John Salley show that earning rings — or not — is often a matter of circumstance.
Needing to make history to bring the first championship to his team and his city? James calls that “an opportunity to do something special.”
The two best storylines of the National Basketball Association season will produce only one happy ending in Sunday's all-or-nothing NBA Finals Game Seven between Stephen Curry and the Warriors and LeBron James and the Cavaliers.
Stephen Curry knows that the record-setting 73 wins, awards and memorable moments that highlighted Golden State's special season will only be footnotes if the Warriors can't quickly find their missing game.
Right near the start Saturday, LeBron James faced a question about whether his legacy might be riding on Game 7 of these NBA Finals.
Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala says he plans to play Game 7 of the NBA Finals despite a balky back that limited him the previous game.
The team has been able to rely on a deep bench, but that hasn’t been the case in the last two games.
James’s block of Curry’s shot late in Game 6 was an exclamation point to the convincing argument that James had already made about who remains the N.B.A.’s premier impact player.
Sabathia, the owner of a miserly 0.86 E.R.A since May 4, was pulling for the Warriors on Thursday even as he delivered another sterling performance.
Mr. Trump and the Republican National Committee could not enter Quicken Loans Arena, where the convention will be held, because it was still being used for the N.B.A. finals.
Curry, who fouled out of Game 6 of the N.B.A. finals on Thursday night, had not fouled out since 2013, before he won his first Most Valuable Player Award.
Under Armour’s basketball shoe sales have taken off, thanks to Stephen Curry’s enormous popularity, but Nike is still dominant, thanks to a large stable of athletes including LeBron James.
The level of tension is growing rapidly for the Golden State Warriors. Someone gets suspended, someone gets hurt, someone gets ejected, and lots of someones make no effort to hide their frustration. A comfortable two-game lead in the NBA Finals becomes a dicey one-game lead, then no lead at all.
LeBron James' family, closest friends and some hangers-on who wanted a glimpse waited for him in the arena's hallways like they have since he was an unequalled Ohio high school star, the best player on any court.
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry and head coach Steve Kerr have each been fined $25,000 for separate incidents stemming from Thursday's Game Six of the NBA Finals, the league announced on Friday.
Steve Kerr and Stephen Curry let their frustrations with Game 6 of the NBA Finals be known, and it came at a price.
“I’ve never been ejected before, so it was a weird feeling,” Curry said after Game 6 of the N.B.A. Finals
LeBron James had a majestic performance on Thursday to put the Cleveland Cavaliers on the brink of a maiden title and keep the Golden State Warriors from celebrating an NBA championship on his home court for a second straight year.
The shell-shocked Golden State Warriors, who were once in complete control of the NBA Finals, are suddenly flirting with disaster after being forced to a decisive seventh game of the NBA Finals.
James, appearing in his sixth straight finals, scored 41 points to help send the N.B.A. finals to a decisive game set for Sunday.
