The NBA Playoffs suffered a major blow Friday after Steph Curry, Lebron James, and Russell Westbrook all announced that they are exiting their respective series to focus on All-NBA team practices.
“The NBA finals is just two teams. This is all NBA. All of them,” said Westbrook during the joint press conference.
“We’ve all won a championship before,” said Curry, before being corrected by Westbrook. “Right, sorry. Almost all of us have won a championship before, but this will be a new challenge for us to take on.”
When reached for comment regarding the loss of his star player for the remainder of the playoffs, Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue remarked, “He’s doing what? Is that even a thing?”
