The Cavs are plus-220, meaning a $100 bet on them would yield $220 if they win the title. Now, in an unlikely twist of fate, he's the Warriors' acting head coach in The Finals, signing as an assistant this past summer but stepping in because of the health issues still affecting Steve Kerr. In fact, it's probably larger than anyone thought it was going into the lopsided series that saw LeBron James and Kyrie Irving dominate as though they were superheroes against the mere mortals wearing Celtics' uniforms.
So basically, the Warriors are constantly running, and while they haven't been as efficient as they could be, they're just overwhelming teams with opportunities to do so. "We're trying to repeat, which is so hard to do". We're both playing at a high level. "I tried to pay him and he wouldn't take the money so he says I always owe him". "We feel like we should be here, and we feel like we should be a championship-contending team". "Those guys are going to challenge me, they're going to challenge our ballclub".
The Cavaliers will start the series on the road at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif., on June 1. Love dislocated his shoulder in the first round of the playoffs against the Celtics (or maybe it's more accurate to say Kelly Olynyk dislocated Love's shoulder).
Brock Osweiler made the news this week when he said, "it's all in the film", on why he should start for the Cleveland Browns this season.
Part of the reason Golden State is taking more 2's is because teams are overplaying their guards, always anxious about those 3's and that leaves cutting lanes wide open.
"I've played against four Hall of Famers as well, too, with Manu (Ginobili), Kawhi (Leonard), Tony (Parker) and Timmy D (Tim Duncan) on the same team", said James, occasionally sniffling as he continues to fight a cold. The next year they defeated Toronto after it needed seven games to get past a Heat team without Bosh and, for the final four games, Hassan Whiteside.
You'll need less dough than the last two years, according to ticket search engine TicketIQ.In Game 5 against the Celtics on Thursday, James passed Michael Jordan as the leading all-time scorer in playoff history. After missig out on consecutive titles past year, Warriors forward Draymond Green said he wants his team to "destroy" and "annihilate" the Cavs in this season's Finals.

We have a good relationship and I will always say nothing ever happened, we didn't have an argument or anything like that. Edwin van der Sar and Marc Overmars are on the board of directors, while Dennis Bergkamp is one of Bosz's assistants.
In his four-year sojourn in Miami, James got there four times and won two National Basketball Association titles.
Contrary to the years before, this year's Finals will consist of two fully rested and fully healthy teams ready for a heavyweight matchup, since both the Warriors and Cavs breezed their way past their conferences. Our goals were set at the beginning of the season, and that's to win a championship. "So however you want to take that, that's how the season's been".
Cleveland certainly deserved the Cavs' title and the Indians' World Series appearance for so many years of failure from its teams. Of course, I've already explained that they have mostly cruised on neutral before the National Basketball Association playoffs started. It's tough to say that we didn't expect it.
"I'm going to be honest", James told reporters in Boston on Thursday night, "I'm not in the right mind to even talk about Golden State".
"(Surgery is) not the number one option right now, but it could be once the swelling goes down", Thomas said.
"I've been very blessed the last few years to be a part of this league and play on the big stage", James said. "It's gonna be a great series", Lue said.

Following Monday night's game, however, Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said Crosby had not been evaluated for a concussion. The Canadian star was also sent crashing into the boards during a Penguins power play. "We just kept going".
They split the first two, and it wouldn't surprise anyone to see either team take home the Larry O'Brien trophy this year. Steve Kerr continues to deal with complications from a back surgery but hopes to be ready to coach in the NBA Finals .
Practically all of Mr Trump's first foreign trip has been spent of discussing the United States stance on climate change. In a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Trump warned anew about the threat posed by North Korea.
President Hassan Rouhani defeated his conservative rival Ebrahim Raisi - by a lot - in Iran's presidential elections on May 19. He called Trump's meeting with Saudi leaders "just a show" and declared it would not "have any political and practical value".
And Mulvaney isn't just making a moral argument; he's advocating for a total overhaul of the way the government spends money. Vox takes a look at some of the incredibly deep budget cuts that will cause enormous damage to individuals and the country.
If that's the case, it might not be until Finals that there is an opponent with the confidence to stand up to the Warriors. That pace of domination by Golden State likely can not be maintained as the series heads to Texas, nor does it need to be.
The Cavaliers have the kind of shooters that if they get hot, even contesting them well will not make a difference. And Irving averaged 25.8 points per game, cranking up his scoring when he was needed at the end of the series .
