Why I’m not afraid of the Golden State Warriors

LeBron James responded to critics wondering if it was good to have the same two teams in the NBA Finals four years in a row.

Game 1 will be held at Golden State home court at Oracle Arena in Oakland, CA at 9 pm.

Iguodala is seen as one of the best Warriors defenders against Cavaliers superstar LeBron James.

Potentially set to play his final handful of games as a member of the Cavaliers, it's rather interesting that James would speak so candidly about the Irving situation and a perceived rift with Cleveland's front office.

"I don't know where they will fall in my book, but they will have a nice chapter", James said Wednesday.

So, understandably, he's going to have a lot to write about in that eventual book - he just needs to figure out where to place it. "We shuffled in different lineups, we shuffled in different players, we made a trade at the deadline, and I can't sit here right now and say that the Finals was a part of my thinking".

THIS IS a selected position-by-position look at the matchups in the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers.

"They're gonna pay for the wall, and they're going to enjoy it", the president went on to claim. Trump won Tennessee decidedly in 2016 and remains popular there.

The Warriors missed the defensive presence of 2015 NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala, who was out for a fifth straight postseason game dealing with a bone bruise in his left knee. "Where you've got great guys who not only have great talent, but practice exactly how you're supposed to practice, and then go on in a game and play it that way".

The NBA Finals MVP trophy is one of the few awards to have eluded Stephen Curry during his illustrious career, but he's not losing any sleep over it. From there, it was game on, as the two teams went back and forth, trading burst after burst until an absurd final few possessions.

The Cavs are the lowest playoff seed, No. 4, for a James-led team in a decade.

Second quarter, 7:48, 42-35 Cavs: Cleveland is shooting 59 percent, and Golden State is just 2-for-11 on 3-pointers.

The Warriors, should they defeat the Cavaliers in the series, will have won their third National Basketball Association title in four years. "And this is one of them", James said, neglecting to mention any of the Knicks teams in the recent Phil Jackson era. He is scheduled to be re-evaluated ahead of Game 2. "If you're just being realistic about what it is, it would be this time, if not longer, in a different scenario".

Alright, this one might be a bit more hard.
