    But the Warriors will also make adjustments to fill up those holes OKC and the Cavs exploited to go along with their offense.

    NBA Cavaliers take hefty tax hit

    New York (AFP) - The champion Cleveland Cavaliers will pay a league-high $54 million luxury tax for last season for going over salary cap limits on their title-team payroll, ESPN said Sunday.

    Owner Dan Gilbert will have to send the league a check for salary overruns in the championship season that brought Cleveland its first sports champion since 1964.

    Seven teams in all exceeded the $84.7 million tax threshold for last season, the Cavaliers most of all, with a whopping $160 million payroll, Cleveland.com reported.

    The Clippers owe $19.9 million in luxury tax, followed by Golden State at $14.8 million, Oklahoma City Thunder at $14.5 million, San Antonio and Houston at $4.9 million and Chicago at $4.2 million.

    To make room for Dwyane Wade, the Chicago Bulls trade PG Jose Calderon to the Los Angeles Lakers and also Mike Dunleavy Jr. to the Cleveland Cavaliers

    Salary-cap projection for 2017-18 season to be lower than expected

    In a surprise turn, the NBA is pulling back on its salary-cap projection for the 2017-18 season, according to a league memo obtained by ESPN, and it could complicate the Golden State Warriors' efforts to keep their new super team together.

    The league previously projected the 2017-18 cap to hit $107 million but lowered that number to $102 million Thursday and lowered the luxury tax line projection from $127 million to $122 million.

    What a NBA career Tim Duncan had. 19 seasons in the NBA and didn't miss a single playoff with five NBA titles, three NBA Finals MVPs, two NBA Regular Season MVPs and a lot more accolades.

    A future Hall of Famer indeed.

    Duncan - great player, class act. On the subject of class acts:

    Duncan opted to not have a look-at-me Kobe tour and quietly rode off into the sunset with his 5 rings
