THE NBA FINALS

LeBron vs. The Warriors

The Cleveland Cavaliers‘ one-man army will face the defending champs the Golden State Warriors – for the 4th straight year.

LeBron James – possibly the greatest basketball player of all time – is actually an UNDERDOG.

Golden State Warriors

  • Won 2 of the last 3 NBA Finals.
  • Deep bench with sharp-shooters.

“Every game in the series takes on a different shape, but Game 7s are 10 times that because you throw everything you have out there on the floor. Just one last effort to get a win.”

Warriors' Steph Curry before rallying his team to a Game 7 win to make Finals.

Cleveland Cavaliers

  • LeBron James has gone to the Finals every season since 2010 – longest streak since 1960s.
  • With a weak roster, he played all 48 mins of Game 7 vs. Boston Celtics getting them to the Finals.

“It’s ridiculous, and he does it at this level and with the pressure, with the scrutiny – doesn’t matter.”

Celtics coach Brad Stevens on LeBron.
