Pat Riley on LeBron James: 'I love LeBron, we all do'

Although he ruled himself out of Game 1, Kerr left the door open to returning during the rematch of the last two NBA Finals.

The Cleveland Cavaliers may be underdogs in the NBA Finals, but that's not fazing LeBron James at all.

On Bay Area Sports Insiders, Courtney Cronin, Anthony Slater and Marcus Thompson discussed Durant's greatest attributions this season, how the Warriors will look to him to replicate the Game 3 performances he had versus Utah and San Antonio and which Golden State player could be responsible for swinging a game in the Finals. After adding Durant, the expectations are on their shoulders, but the Cavs, as we've learned the hard way, are the only team which can challenge them.

"Winning it was an incredible feat for us", Irving said following the team's practice. As we head into the NBA Finals this June, basketball fans find themselves in a familiar place. Kerr's competitive. He wants to help this team win a championship.

"I'd like to see a great Finals", he said. "You adapt to the style and that's the same thing that happened to me when I went to Miami". No team has ever ever swept through the playoffs at 16-0 and the Warriors would be the first do so if they can. That's enough motivation alone.

The refereeing was a bit touch and go, especially throughout the second half with numerous questionable calls going both ways, with even the commentators of the TNT broadcast; Marv Albert, Chris Webber and Reggie Miller discussing the refs giving out too many "make-up calls", to counter missed or wrong calls they may have already made. If Brown wants to follow them, the prudent course would be to play the role of loyal understudy during this postseason run. We're not using that as an excuse. Our goals were set at the beginning of the season, and that's to win a championship. You got to relish in the competition and the players that we're going against. "So, that's what we're focused on". "It's tough to say that we didn't expect it; we knew they'd be right there". Their starting lineup has also outscored teams by 32.6 points per 100 possessions. The Warriors have the No. 1 defensive efficiency at 99.1 points allowed per 100 possessions; the Cavs are No. 3 at 104.6. "I think it's gotten to the point where it's become a travesty, an absolute travesty".

When Kevin Love says this, how does the reporter not say, well, they beat you by 48 points in the first two games previous year in the Finals, led 3-1 before the suspension of Draymond Green, and then they added Kevin Durant. Then the gaze shifts to the Golden State Warriors and everything changes. Durant was simply fantastic in the Western Conference finals against the Spurs, as he put up 28 points per game on just 16 shots and shot a ridiculous 60 percent from the field.
