In the same tunnel where they celebrated a championship one year ago, Kyrie Irving waited for LeBron James to come off the court and the two Cleveland Cavaliers stars embraced.

James wrapped his arm around Irving and simply said: “We’ll be back, me and you. We’ll be back.”

James had just become the first player in NBA history to average a triple-double in the NBA Finals after scoring 41 points with 13 rebounds and eight assists in Game 5 on Monday night. James ended the series averaging 33.6 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists but took the fifth Finals loss of his career as the Golden State Warriors clinched the title with a 129-120 victory.

Clippers head coach Doc Rivers believes the NBA should expand its All-Star rosters to 15 players on each side. “I wish the league would go to 15,” Rivers said, prior to Monday’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. “Whatever we dress [in regular games], we should have All-Stars.”

Rivers, like many players, coaches and fans also believes that the upcoming All-Star Game draft between captains LeBron James and Stephen Curry should be televised. As an added bonus, Rivers also believes that the league’s coaches’ vote should be made public as well.
