The superstar forward, 33, finished as an National Basketball Association finals runner-up for the second year in a row and the sixth time in his career as the Cavs were swept by the Golden State Warriors on Friday night.
Greg Oden, beset by chronic injuries, played parts of two seasons in Portland, averaging eight points per game.
CLEVELAND, OH - Klay Thompson #11 of the Golden State Warriors celebrates after the game against the Cleveland Cavaliers while holding the Larry O'Brien NBA Championship Trophy after Game Four of the 2018 NBA Finals on June 8, 2018 at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.
For the Warriors, with Durant in his second season with Golden State, their team chemistry has only gotten stronger. "You've got two guys with MVPs on their team". However, Shaun Livingston, Andre Iguodala, JaVale McGee, and Jordan Bell pitched in. "So they have a lot of talent".
Playing with a broken hand-and for more than one game-is in itself an incredible feat.
It was the fourth year in a row the Warriors and Cavaliers met in the finals, Golden State winning in 2015 and the past two years.
Cobb sharp, Orioles end 7-game skid by beating Mets 2-1
Mets manager Mickey Callaway wouldn't rule out the slugger's return despite skipping a minor league rehabilitation assignment. Baltimore reliever Richard Bleier got Asdrubal Cabrera to ground into a double play with two on to end the eighth.
Golden State have won all three against the Cavaliers with the final game finishing in Cleveland for the second time and with speculation LeBron James could leave Cleveland.
To this point, 131 have tried, and 131 have failed.
That almost wound up costing the Warriors dearly, as fourth-quarter collapses in both Games 4 and 5 of the Western Conference finals allowed Houston take a 3-2 lead in the series, and move Golden State to within a game of elimination. "So what do we have to do?"
Making matters even more hard is that the team with one hand on the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy happens to possess a high-octane offense that can score seemingly at will from anywhere on the floor. "Let him rest a little bit". "So now we've just got to finish the job".
Those were today's relevant questions.
As they have all season, the Warriors used an overwhelming third quarter to clinched the win.
James is headed toward free agency and then where: Los Angeles? "That's the only thing that matters to us".

This ending - a loss - was inevitable: For as good as James was this season, his Cavaliers were not good enough.
"I have no idea at this point", James said.
"We just know how to win and we really appreciate what everyone brings to the table every single game" Curry said. "I'm going to try to hold onto it for as long as I can".
"So now everyone is trying to figure that out", he said. The line is identical to the spread for Game 3, which Golden State covered in a 110-102 victory. That's what GMs and presidents and certain players, it's not every player.
"He's a bad boy, and I love having him on our team", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said.
The health of James' hand likely would not have had much affect on the outcome of the series, a four-game sweep by the Warriors.
And then, nearly by accident, James delivered a devastating zinger on the former front office of the Trail Blazers, who drafted Greg Oden first overall instead of Durant.
