LeBron James defers on Warriors thoughts: ‘It’s too stressful’

BOSTON — As they celebrated defending their Eastern Conference title Thursday night, the Cleveland Cavaliers weren’t ready to focus on defending their NBA championship.

Despite going through the East playoffs at 12-1 and appearing destined for a rematch against the Golden State Warriors for months, the Cavs pushed off thoughts of what awaits them in Oakland next week.

“I’m going to be honest, I’m not in the right mind to even talk about Golden State,” LeBron James said after scoring 35 points in the Cavs’ 135-102 Game 5 win over the Boston Celtics. “It’s too stressful, and I’m not stressed right now. I’m very happy about our accomplishment. Golden State, they’ve been the best team in our league for the last three years, and then they added an MVP ( Kevin Durant). That’s all I can give you right now, because I’m happy and I don’t want to be stressed.”
