So, in an interview with the Breakfast Club, Warriors swingman Andre Iguodala said that the Thunder, and not the Cavs, were the best team in the league during the playoffs. Even though the Cavs won the title.

Just gonna leave this here:

Anyway, Cavs GM David Griffin seems confident that the NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers will able to re-sign NBA Champion J.R. Smith. My blind guess at what Smith will sign for: three years, $50 million with the third year a team option.

Speaking of the Cavs' title win, NBA Champion Kyrie Irving FaceTimed Kobe Bryant in the locker room right out of Game 7. Pretty cool moment for Irving, who after his rookie reason, famously jawed with Kobe at a Team USA practice ahead of the 2012 Olympics.

In summer Cavs news, Cleveland beat the Los Angeles Lakers. Jordan McRae continues to look good, by the way.
