This is Le Bron James eight straight trip to the NBA Finals

This postseason, the Cavs have worn black 11 out of 18 games, winning 9 of them. "But any game they get in this Finals would be a huge upset to me".

His fellow analyst, Mark Jackson, was a bit less gloomy about the Cavaliers' chances. "I'm just proud of the way we battled", Klay Thompson said. May 29 10:48 AM There was a moment where it looked like Golden State's dynasty was in danger of falling by the wayside, but then the Warriors showed the form that has made them the league's best team over the past four seasons. All easier said than done.

After the game, The Associated Press reports: Stephen Curry said someone asked him if it's still special to get to the finals when it's the fourth time in a row. But the old blood is familiar and loaded with star power.

"The second half was unbelievable", Curry said. "But to get to this point again, we earned it".

"Everybody doubted us", Cavaliers forward Jeff Green said. "Playing Game 7 in a hostile environment in Boston I think will help us in Game 1".

Shahid Afridi , David Miller, Sunil Narine, Dwayne Bravo, Andre Russell , Chris Lynn, Darren Sammy and Lasith Malinga are the other marquee players .

Jackson, who grew up in Queens, was among the candidates for the Knicks coaching job that went to David Fizdale. Then (31:00): they discuss Kevin Durant's odd series, a cryptic post-game comment, and the future of Steve Kerr ... "It was a heck of an opportunity and I wish them nothing but the very best.".

Eclipsing the previous high of the May 27 Cavs-Celtics game by 13% in the early metrics, Monday's Western Conference Finals Game 7 was also the second highest-rated National Basketball Association game ever on cable after the 2016 WCF Game 7 between the Warriors and Thunder.

All games will air live in a repeat of last year's historic bilingual simulcast starting Game 1, which will be hosten by the Warriors, at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.

Cleveland turned over half of its roster - literally - at the trade deadlines, and while the current iteration of the team doesn't match up with that 2017 squad, it is significantly better - in my opinion - than the team they had earlier this season, particularly on the defensive end. In fact, the Warriors are the biggest favorites in an NBA Finals for the last 16 years, according to data compiled by Sportsoddhistory.com. But it all fell apart in the final two games. The 33-year-old proved to be one of the greatest of all time in putting up numerous 40 plus point games in getting the Cavs all the way to the playoffs, including two exhausting seven game series against the Boston Celtics and Indiana Pacers.
