Steve Kerr says he's not planning to coach Game 1 of Finals

Today, I will be recapping the two recently concluded conference finals series. They've been super-impressive. It's kind of in our minds that that's who we were going to see.

After this year's lackluster NBA playoffs, buckle up: The Warriors and Cavaliers are back in the NBA Finals for the third consecutive year. The Kawhi Leonard injury in the opening game ruined the Spurs chances and vilified Zaza Pachulia.

Golden State has glowed in this postseason, becoming the first team to start 12-0 while winning by an average of 16.3 points per game - the highest margin league history.

The NBA Finals get underway with Golden State, which finished with a league-best 67-15 record in the regular season, hosting Games 1 and 2 on June 1 and 4.

For the third straight year, it's Cleveland and Golden State in the NBA Finals.

Nearly immediately in the first round, both teams made it clear they have no equal in their respective conferences.

Lue was asked if it's more hard to identify who that is on Golden State. This team is just not fair.

The 2015 champion Warriors will face the 2016 champion Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals for the third straight year.

Trump's $4T budget arrives on Capitol Hill
He also describes the president's recommendations as a "message budget to the right wing of the party". No. 2 Senate Republican John Cornyn calls the budget "dead on arrival".

Want to show up your friend? Last year, the Cavs were able to erase a 3-1 deficit and come back to win Game 7. The answer is 2010. The 2017 NBA Finals gets underway on July 1. No, you remember LeBron James' chase-down block and an epic Game 7 of the NBA Finals that made way for the ideal summer of Warriors blowing 3-1 lead jokes. It's a 14.5-point jump from the Game 1 total in last year's Finals.

Iguodala then returned to close out the final two games of the series, not having a huge impact but showing a ray of hope toward the end of Game 4, springing up for a semi-explosive dunk and a few layups.

Kyrie Irving looked fantastic during this series.

On Christmas day it was Irving who buried a turnaround jumper over Klay Thompson in the closing seconds to give Cavs fans a very Merry Christmas while reminding the Warriors of what just happened 6 months earlier.

The series will feature a number of compelling individual matchups, most notably James versus Durant at small forward, Kyrie Irving versus Curry at point guard and Kevin Love versus Draymond Green at power forward.

"I've always told you guys, anytime I'm linked to any of the greats, even the greatest in Mike, it's just an honor", James told reporters Thursday morning. They're a team that doesn't have many weaknesses, if any at all.

There's a four-headed, shot-making, scoreboard-breaking monster out West awaiting LeBron James and the Cavaliers. If LeBron and the Cavaliers pull this off, it will be one of the biggest upsets in NBA Finals history.

Cavaliers are on the wrong end of "The Shot", the name of a famed series-winning basket hit by Michael Jordan in the 1989 Eastern Conference quarter-finals that is one of the most replayed National Basketball Association plays in history. I'm taking part in practices, helping with the messaging, taking part in coaching meetings, but I'm not on the sidelines during games. "I'm doing my homework, I'm doing every possible thing to put this team in every situation to win".
