LeBron James said he didn't enjoy last year's run to the Finals the way he is enjoying this journey due to all the injuries. He appreciates what Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving have done to get here and show why the three were assembled. After answering the first three or four questions of the press conference, LeBron asked the media to "please ask these guys the next question and not me." Throughout the postseason, LeBron has repeatedly tried to credit Love and Irving.

Kevin Love got down and did a little dance with Cavs assistant coach Damon Jones as rap music blared in the locker room. Definitely looked like "Droppin' dimes" K-Love.
