Cleveland point guard Kyrie Irving spoke for the entire state of Ohio when he said:
“I feel like (the Cavaliers) definitely would have won an NBA championship if we had everyone healthy.”
Golden State’s Draymond Green was asked about that when speaking to the media after signing a new five-year, $85 million contract to stay in Golden State. Green wasn’t going to play the hypothetical “what if Irving and Kevin Love had been healthy” game.

“If I was 6-foot-11, I think that I could be like Anthony Davis. But I’m not, and I’m not like Anthony Davis.”
I’m not convinced the series ends differently if Love and Irving play, but the question is moot. No team ever wins a title without catching a couple breaks. Golden State caught theirs this year.
Cavaliers fans will catch theirs in the coming years.
