LeBron James Says He Doesn't 'Lose Sleep Anymore' Over His Finals Losses

  • NBA Cleveland Cavaliers at Golden State Warriors

Since then, Durant told GQ in November that he viewed that moment as James "passing the torch to me".

It's been established that losing the Super Bowl feels a lot worse than winning it feels good, and I have to imagine the adage carries over and applies to the NBA Finals as well. So Boston was ignored for three years before finally getting back on the schedule last year, and now Irving, Jayson Tatum and these Celtics make history as the first to be home for the holiday.

ESPN said its audience is the second-highest it's ever had at this point behind 2010-11, James' first season in Miami, and Van Gundy said he's even a little surprised. "You have the talent and the marketable players, so I understand why they're picking those teams", said Sacramento veteran Vince Carter.

James and the Cavaliers have played against the Warriors on Christmas Day in 2015, 2016 and now 2017.

"I understand that it's probably not everybody's favorite event, people that bust their tail and work in the arenas and are there all the time, and maybe media and everybody else", Stevens said.




"No. I mean, listen". It was a specific reference to his game-sealing - and arguably series-clinching - three-pointer in the waning moments of Game 3 to give the Warriors an insurmountable 3-0 lead. "... It's my turn to ... enjoy being one of the best players in the world". But back then, the National Basketball Association only played two or three games on that date, and the Toronto Raptors appeared only once in a Christmas match. "He was definitely the difference maker". Stephen Curry is sidelined with an ankle sprain, and newly acquired Isaiah Thomas is still rehabbing a hip injury which has kept him out for all of the Cavaliers' season.

- Oklahoma City against Houston, a matchup of MVP Russell Westbrook and runner-up James Harden.

"Absolutely", James said. "You would be unhuman if it didn't". "We have a budding dynasty, with Golden State, a team that tries to challenge it in its own conference or a couple of teams, San Antonio and Houston".

Don't ask LeBron James if he is still haunted by last season's NBA Finals loss to the Warriors. But yeah, you would be unhuman if you played three straight Finals versus a team and you felt nothing when you went out on the floor against them. We're still trying to continue to put things together and put pieces together. "I've never had an opportunity to play in the (Madison Square) Garden, but playing in the Staples Center, I've been there quite a few times. It's kind of always fun to play in front of that crowd and have that atmosphere".
