James admitted that the Warriors, who lead the series 3-0, are more talented than the Cavaliers. According to Jason Lloyd of The Athletic, that player went as far as to say he believed the Cavs would be up 3-0 if Irving was still around. The mystery is gone, and Golden State - which hasn't lost four consecutive games in the same season since 2013, back when Mark Jackson was coaching the Warriors instead of calling their games on ABC and ESPN - needs only to avoid an apocalyptic collapse to win their third title in four years. Instead, the four-time MVP reflected on the enormous talent that he and his teammates have had to play against in the last four NBA Finals series.
Against a team like the Warriors, James understands that making stupid mistakes simply can't happen. "Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!"

Durant capped that half with a deep 3-pointer in the final seconds before walking toward the locker room - which served as foreshadowing.
The Cavaliers led Game 3 Wednesday by 13 in the second quarter. We've got a lot of guys who can score and fill it up, and they lift each other up if one of them is having a tough night. They play Game 4 in Cleveland on Friday. In short, not looking their best at times this season might ultimately make them better. "We've been in a position where we could win two out of these three games".
Since the Cavaliers haven't been able to play the ideal game against Golden State, this summer James could try to find and help assemble the flawless team.
