That's what the Cavaliers must do after falling to the Warriors in the final for the second time in three seasons, having rallied from 3-1 down past year to win the crown when James led the series in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks - another unprecedented feat.

After averaging a triple-double over the five games, James knew there was little more he or his teammates could have done to beat a Golden State Warriors team that proved too talented this year with the addition of Finals MVP Durant.

The Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers to regain the NBA Championship with a 4-1 series win.

After the Cleveland Cavaliers fell to the Golden State Warriors in the National Basketball Association finals, the Cavaliers had a lot of emotions to process.

In Game 5 after the Cavaliers succumbed to a superior Golden State team, James was a minus-13 next to his 41 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists, meaning when he was on the court the Cavaliers were outscored by 13 points.

Warriors point guard Steph Curry said the experience of losing in last year's finals served them well in this year's run to the title. Durant discussed his team, himself, his family and also a man he had to go through to win this coveted trophy.

This time, James gave way to KD, who was the NBA Finals MVP 10 years after being picked second in the NBA draft behind Greg Oden.

Durant might be asked to do the same-take less than he might command elsewhere to allow Golden State to keep Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston without salary cap issues.

"I ain't got to say nothing", Durant said, as if that was all he had to say.

"LeBron and Kyrie - I've never seen none like them two before".

"We'll be back", LeBron said, "me and you".

The 28-year-old Durant was the unanimous choice of the 11 media panelists for Finals Most Valuable Player (MVP). Irving added 26 points and six assists. JR Smith added 25 points and seven 3-pointers.

Just so you know, James is now 3-5 all-time in the NBA Finals following last night's defeat - not exactly dominant, but not too awful either. Kevin Love had a bad night with only 6 points. The season could not have ended any better for Durant after joining the Warriors in free agency.

"It's just a great group of guys, great community, great arena, great fans", Durant said.
