LeBron James & J.R. Smith Spotted At Future Concert In Cleveland

"LeBron James" team will be the underdog.

The Warriors are stomach-churning scary. "It's not something that I can hide from or run from", Brown said of his connection with the Cavs.

Although he ruled himself out of Game 1, Kerr left the door open to returning during the rematch of the last two NBA Finals. After all, he has slayed behemoths before.

Lue has been preparing for the biggest battle of his basketball career this week.

"It's probably up there", he said. "I mean, it's up there".

"Yeah, I still think about that (turnover)", Curry said. And if you add Pop [Gregg Popovich] in there, that's five Hall of Famers.

"So, it's going to be very challenging".

"This is a high-powered team". Likely, his defense can be stretched to a new degree by teams built of raw star talent, so not any of those teams or the Boston Celtics.

"I've played against Ray (Allen), KG (Kevin Garnett), Paul (Pierce), (Rajon) Rondo and Doc (Rivers)", James said.

The Warriors and the Cavs will fight for the championship for a third straight season, but Cleveland are the reigning champions after fighting back from 3-1 down to dethrone Golden State in 2016. It's the first time in league history that's ever happened.

The first game of the best-of-seven finals is slated for Thursday, June 1, U.S. time, which means Australian fans can catch it on Friday, June 2.

Hard to believe, but this version - with Durant - might be even better.

The Warriors were looking like a lottery team in March 2007 when Nelson was asked what he thought they should do if they got the No. 1 pick.

The Warriors are using Durant in every imaginable way on offense, and James isn't surprised to see his good friend and Olympic teammate more mobile than he was with the Thunder.

If you somehow missed last year's series, I highly suggest you watch the NBA's mini-movie on the historical and entertaining series to get you excited for this year's finals. "(But) in thinking about that game, it's amusing because I know the concept of making the right play, making a simple play, understanding that there are deciding moments in games and the difference between winning a championship or not could be one of those plays. "It's the right thing to do". He's one of the innovators of small ball, a coach who seemed more comfortable with a point forward than a power forward, so it wouldn't have been surprising if he leaned Durant. So it makes it even more hard. That's a 72 percent winning clip if you blindly bet the Over in each of their postseason games.

For the sixth time, James enters the Finals as an underdog, hardly a role he's accustomed to before June.

Durant's only other time in the Finals was 2012 when he was with Oklahoma City. Then in the first round of the current playoffs, James did this in Game 3 against the Pacers with 41 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists.

"I'm just at peace with myself; I'm at peace with myself as a basketball player, most importantly", Durant said. They did two years ago when they knocked off the Cavaliers in the Finals, and they almost repeated last year when they blew a 3-1 lead in the series.

Maybe James has nothing to fear. And I feel the same way.
