LeBron posts videos of Warriors-Cavs Game 7 because he can't sleep

Sorry Warriors fans, but this one probably will put you in a bad mood for a couple of minutes.

Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals brings back a lot of painful memories for Dub Nation. And LeBron James early Friday morning elected to remind the world about what happened that night.

Golden State led Cleveland 87-83 with a little over 5:30 remaining in the fourth quarter, but scored just two more points and lost 93-89.

The Warriors became the first team in NBA history to blow a three-games-to-one series lead in the NBA Finals.

But let's spin things in a positive direction now.

Plain and simple, the Warriors don't land Kevin Durant if they win the 2016 title. He would not have joined a franchise coming off back-to-back championships.

Who knows what might have happened from 2017 to 2019 if KD didn't rock a Golden State uniform during that time. Perhaps the Warriors would have captured another Larry O'Brien trophy in that span.

But the fact of the matter is the Dubs won it all in 2017 and 2018, and almost assuredly would have completed the three-peat had they remained healthy in 2019.

If you would have preferred a victory over LeBron in Game 7 four years ago over what transpired the following three seasons, well ...

... that's your prerogative and you are more than entitled to those feelings.
