Many call LeBron James ‘the chosen one’, a title that he will surely be applicable to if the Cleveland Cavaliers string wins together in the NBA Finals series.

James repeated his high score rate in game two yesterday, earning a triple-double and 39 points as the Cavs beat the Warriors 95-93 in overtime at Oracle Arena.
James’ emotion when the final buzzer sounded was that of a man who came in desperate for a victory, and a man who knew that the mortality of his storied career was on the line.
If James wins Cleveland a title on his return to the franchise it will be one of the most chronicled stories in sport.
When asked what it took on the court in game two, James answered with a single word, “everything”.
The result sees Cleveland win their first finals game in franchise history.
Apart from nailing the crucial basket late in regulation, Steph Curry had an horrific night shooting for the Golden State Warriors.
Game three of the series is in Cleveland on Wednesday NZST.
