“You’re going to be just like your father…”

If there’s anything we can take away from Monday night’s conclusion to the NBA Finals, it’s that we need LeBron James…now more than ever.

Golden State made short work of the Cavs in this series, leaning heavily on Kevin Durant, who (as I mentioned last week) has broken the NBA.
