The lack of talent on the Cleveland roster eventually told in the Finals as they were easily swept by the star-studded Golden State Warriors.

"To win in a sweep feels pretty good", said Durant, who was named the Most Valuable Player of the Finals for the second straight year.

"James stands to make about $35 million next season whether he opts out or not". Durant stated his case by registering his first playoff triple double with 20 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists.

Right now, the most popular predictions for James' destination have been the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets, with his current team, the Cleveland Cavaliers also strongly in the mix.

Other possible destinations for James include Philadelphia, Houston, Boston, San Antonio, Golden State and Miami.

No player in the league understands the current climate better than James, who formed a super-team in Miami with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh and won two National Basketball Association titles before returning to Cleveland and joining forces with All-Stars Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving.
