King James has another throne.

"The start of the game was so bad, I felt like it was hard for us to come back", said Bradley (a team-high 23 points) after watching the Cavs shoot 64% in the opening quarter while building a 21-point lead.

While Jordan (179 games) did play in 33 fewer games than James (212 games) did, Jordan (4,497 field goal attempts) took 120 more shots than James did (4,379 field goal attempts) to get to 5,987 postseason points.

Before the game was over, James had broken the NBA's all-time playoff scoring list - racking up a career postseason total of 5,995 points and bumping His Airness Michael Jordan down to No. 2.

And in the third quarter, the All-Star guard had James' back again, keeping the Cavs on their collision course with the Warriors.

Look, the only way we'll ever know which player was truly the G.O.A.T.is to have them play one-on-one in the prime of their careers.

Game 5 was such a non-event that Charles Barkley stated he was going to nick off at half-time to watch the (far more enthralling) Game 7 National Hockey League clash between Ottawa and Pittsburgh. Two years ago, I wouldn't have considered James' accomplishments on Jordan's level.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue chuckled before the game when he was asked if he planned to say anything to James following his sub-standard performance in Game 3.

That the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead in last season's Finals has to burn on a daily basis.

Cleveland walked onto the parquet Thursday night, not with thoughts of Golden State, but with a mind to putting these exacerbating Celtics down for the year.

The Los Angeles Lakers had set the previous record of 12 straight wins in potential elimination games from 2000-2004.

I'm taking the points in game one. "I'm excited about us getting an opportunity to represent our franchise in the Eastern Conference finals to go play for the big one".

LeBron tried to throw a dunk down with so much force that he missed it and gave the ball right back to the Celtics. "We have to be ready for the challenge". The 135 - 102 final scoreline flattered the Celtics immensely, who now take their (admittedly very talented) core and await the arrival of the number one draft pick that they somehow spirited away from Brooklyn several years ago. "I went when I was 23 years old, and it felt like the Western Conference Finals was nearly like the championship".

"Hopefully", James said that night, "I don't continue to have to run into him".

"Honestly, I don't really care who we play", Lacob said, per The Mercury News, after the Warriors swept the Spurs.
