Kerr's status remains undecided for Game 1

Golden State Warriors are favourites for glory in the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, something head coach Steve Kerr is surprised by.

Doc Rivers says it was tough for "anybody that's competitive" to watch Kevin Durant join the Golden State Warriors last summer.

With three-times National Basketball Association champion James in the best playoff form of his career and the Warriors on a revenge path, even the most casual fans may find it hard to turn away when the series begins on Thursday in Oakland.

They haven't blinked. They're 27-1 in their last 28 games. It doesn't mean you can stop 'em, but you feel a little more confident in what you're trying to do to make them work to score points. He also said that the comments do not matter and will not affect him anymore while revealing his new basketball court where over 200 people has come to the unveiling of the new court. Doctors thought they might have to amputate his left leg. Brown spent two stints coaching the Cavs but beat Lue in a shooting contest nearly two decades ago when Lue was an National Basketball Association newcomer. And that decision played into Cleveland's favor.

Curry ended the 2016 Finals averaging 22.6 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 3.7 apg, and only shot 40/40/92. Just a quick glance a couple of lockers down to where Shaun Livingston dresses at Oracle Arena, defying the odds yet again this season as a regular reserve contributing to another Warriors championship chase, is all it takes. The NBA retroactively assessed Green with a flagrant-1 foul, resulting in a one-game suspension. He was very good in 2015 when they won the title; he failed to live up to his 2016 regular season - understandably - in the 2016 Finals when he was far from great, but certainly not bad. The Cavaliers won the first meeting in Cleveland by a single point on Christmas Day.

He originally underwent surgery in 2015, but complications and a second surgery forced him out for the first 43 games of the 2015-16 season.

So many questions are out there heading into the 2017 NBA Finals, and the best part is that NBA fans will learn all of the answers as the games unfold and history is made right in front of our eyes. They worked their way to a 21-point Game 3 victory.

But apart from Game 3 against Boston, the Cavaliers looked as fierce as ever. Then, in Game 5 in Boston, the Cavaliers set franchise records for the most points in a quarter (43), half (75) and game (135) in a postseason contest on the way to a 135-102 closeout win. Fair or not, Curry's first title will be labeled a fluke if he can't outperform Kyrie Irving in back to back NBA Finals. This isn't as almost bad as LeBron averaging 17.8 ppg (3rd on the team) in the 2011 Finals, only shooting 47 percent from the field with 7.2 rebounds and 6.8 assists per game.

James isn't anxious about point spreads or any odds.

As a leader on both ends of the floor, James averaged 8.0 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 1.4 blocks and 2.2 steals over the first three rounds of the 2017 NBA Playoffs. But now? Now it just looks kind of disheveled, with LeBron's brilliant dunk and Irving's lunatic three-pointer breaking up the slop.
