The Cleveland Cavaliers have a few days off until the Eastern Conference Finals kick off, giving people plenty of time to get upset—and look for hidden messages—about things LeBron James says.
The Cavs superstar gives props to Terry Stotts by saying he should have been named Coach of the Year (which went to Steve Kerr) after guiding the Portland Trail Blazers much further than anyone anticipated this season.
I asked LeBron about #Blazers. He said Stotts 'should have been' COY. Says Damian Lillard is an All-Star. Called CJ McCollum a Canton stud.

LBJ was also asked about Stephen Curry winning his second MVP in a row.
James says Curry deserves the award, while giving a nuanced take on what it means to be the NBA’s most “valuable” player.
(The four-time MVP admits he was “heated” about not being voted as the unanimous No. 1 choice in 2012-13.)
