Barkley is right. Mozgov saved the Cavs season. That's no knock on LeBron. Just noting how little Cavs had in the middle before deal.

There's this perception in national media, for instance, that everyone in Miami is on vacation. Because when they're in Miami, they are.

You know what I'd really get excited about? Watching LaVine learn to defend the PnR. That would excite me. I'd probably blog about that.

So great on the last night of Inside the NBA that Charles is talking in circles about concussions and making no sense. So perfect

Ethan J. Skolnick

Cleveland should celebrate. Suffered in sports a long time. But idea that 1 city "works harder" than another is an annoying media narrative.

Champagne, Coronas, and trophy selfies in the Cavaliers locker room. LeBron James singing Fetty Wap as he heads to the showers.

LeBron's family selfie on the court is great. Last year, #Heatmedia would've been trying to sneak in it.

Mark Followill

In April, Rangers went 7-14 w/ some of worst offensive stats in a month in the DH era. Pretty amazing turnaround to already be back to .500

Is anybody else tickled by Shaq & Chuck arguing over the definition of a concussion?

Joe Cowley

MJ needed Pippen and Rodman to get past the Bad Boys and win 6. LeBron can get Boobie Gibson to the NBA Finals. That is greatness.

Jared Zwerling

Cavs' D surge was impressive. Physical, rotations & rebounds. ATL great test to prepare for GS (likely). Also fast-paced. But GS has Curry.

Kristina Leahy

Could listen to @Shaquille O'Neal and Charles debate concussions all day.

Love is seeing all the evidence he needs that the Cavs don't need him. Cleveland is, too, by the way. twitter.com/Joway25/status…

Buddy Grizzard

Stay classy, Cleveland.

Steve Popper

If you believe MJ, Pippen, Kobe and Shaq were the real reasons for all those rings, does Phil get more credit for helping Cavs to this one?

Kristina Leahy

Grizzlies should really move to the eastern conference. They need some increased competition over there.

Remember when Mike Miller and Shawn Marion’s plans as free agents was a thing? They’re finally in — with the #benchmob.

Earl K. Sneed

Happy for my dudes @Shawn Marion and @bwood_33. Go get that 2nd ring, fellas.

Joe Cowley

So how is that "Ozzie needs to go" campaign working out for you? Guessing the same way the "Thibs must go" campaign will end up.

Sean Highkin

Hawks had a great season and I enjoyed them immensely.

Emily Austen

A long game possibly about to be even longer... Jake Elmore puts one in play and Joey Butler scored to tie it up!!! #Rays

Stefan Bondy

How good is LeBron James: He leaves the Cavs and they win 19 games. He comes back and they go from lottery to the finals.

Nick Friedell

I don't care who is coaching the Bulls next season -- I think this group let its best chance to get to Finals pass them by this year.

David Locke

LeBron James has been to 5 straight finals

Royce Young

Guys…. I don’t think the Hawks are coming back.

Rob Peterson

Maybe if you had written that tweet in Comic Sans... twitter.com/tomhaberstroh/…

This is the first sweep in the Eastern Conference Finals since 2003.

Kendrick Perkins jump-hook: Victory cigar

Jason Walker

You knew that Perk shot was going down. What a series for the Cavs.

Tas Melas

LeBron James is the first player to go to five straight NBA Finals since 1966! Jordan didn't do it. Or Shaq. Or Magic... Kinda unbelievable.
