LeBron says has beaten stacked teams like Warriors before

LeBron says has beaten stacked teams like Warriors before

"I'd like to tell you I'm ready, but I'm not ready to coach yet", Kerr said Monday via the San Francisco Chronicle.

Golden State takes the series 4-2 and gets revenge for last year's stunning defeat. "You talk about longevity and being able to just play at a high level for a long period of time, and I've been fortunate enough to be able to do that". Lue is back in the NBA Finals, and the Cavaliers acknowledge they probably wouldn't be in position to win another title if not for Lue's calming influence. In Cleveland's clinching win over Boston in the Eastern Conference Finals, he passed none other than Michael Jordan as the NBA's top playoff scorer in history.

He's 28-6 in two postseasons with Cleveland. When it's all said and done, however, LeBron James could have an argument as the GOAT - especially if he can pull off an upset of the favoured Warriors for the second straight June. "I'm comfortable, in a lot of pain, but I did fine", Kerr said. The question will become: Is he more likely to leave if the Warriors win or if they lose?

I respect the past and appreciate that wonderful stuff happened before TV, before me. "I'm very happy and I'm going to enjoy it until we play Golden State". Past year the Warriors were record-setting again, but it was the incredible Cavs who came back from a 3-1 Finals deficit to win Cleveland's first title since the 1964 Browns (yes, the Browns have won quite a few titles, just not lately).

James also took on a Celtics team loaded with big-name talents.

Lue knows the Cavs are facing a hard task, one made tougher with the addition of the versatile Durant, who can score down low, from the perimeter and free-throw line.

"Hell yeah", he said, his voice rising. This NBA Finals pits two largely veteran teams with stars in their prime.

Gustafsson finishes Teixeira with insane combo in bloody UFC brawl
Gustafsson has done battle with both men, coming up just short against Jones at UFC 165 and Cormier at UFC 192. Now, there's certainly other people, like "DC", who aren't fans of the former light-heavyweight champ.


Golden State is better, however, with the same core of stars (Curry, Thompson, Green) but they added superstar Kevin Durant in the offseason to create one of the strongest teams the National Basketball Association has ever seen.

This basketball court will be dedicated to youngsters and children who want to learn basketball and at times he himself will be present there as well to coach them. It's one thing to beat Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.

We all know Curry is a gifted passer, but that was the wrong time for him to show-off and make a pass like that. Last year, the Cavs became the first team in league history to rally from a 3-1 series deficit to win the Finals.

Did not his block of a Warrior shot last year led to Cleveland's Game 7 victory that paved the way for the Cavs' first National Basketball Association title in 52 years? The Cavs All-Star guard made his now famous go-ahead, step-back 3-pointer. Did LeBron not put up 34 points, 6 assists and 5 rebounds that game?

LeBron James has more haters than any athlete on the planet right now. "Going high, going low. Just have to be locked in to a few different things and when we adjust everybody has to be on the same page". Or haven't you noticed that LaVar Ball is everywhere, and the NBA Draft is just four days after a possible Game 7 is scheduled? "So you're doing all that for no reason".

"As of right now, I will not coach Thursday night". Simple as it sounds, the Warriors are just too strong and talented on both ends of the floor to end another campaign without the Larry O'Brien Trophy. James didn't speak to reporters on Saturday either, leaving Love to serve as the team's unofficial spokesman as the sports world inched closer to a matchup that seemed destined from the moment last season's Finals ended.

The amusing thing about sports - and about life, really - is that we sometimes don't realize that what we are watching is not, in fact, the culmination of every thread and storyline, every second we've invested emotionally and intellectually into this silly game of men running around in their pajamas, every subplot and talking point leading to this: The Big Game.
