I will provide commentary on why these playoffs have been historic despite not being the most entertaining series. "But we understand that's not where we want the storybook to kind of end". The 2017 NBA Finals start on Thursday night, from Oracle Arena in Oakland, after a long layoff with both teams dominating their postseason run. James briefly celebrated breaking the record by raising his right index finger to signal No. 1 as he headed down the court while the game continued. The Kawhi Leonard injury in the opening game ruined the Spurs chances and vilified Zaza Pachulia.
The Cavaliers, powered by the game's best player in LeBron James, are 12-1, with their only playoff hiccup coming in a Game Three loss of the Eastern Conference final. "They just stayed resilient all year, got to the playoffs, and we really stepped our game up", he said.
Golden State forward Kevin Durant is another newcomer to the third instalment of Warriors-Cavs who has history with James. Well, that and the fact they had the second best defense in the National Basketball Association this year.
"I had to get used to the attention", Durant told USA Today of his move to Golden State.
"I'm going to be honest". LeBron James is just naturally unfair, and the East has been terribly lopsided for over a decade now.

But last season, the Warriors were coming off an National Basketball Association record 73-win regular season and had a 3-1 lead on Cleveland before Green got suspended, Andrew Bogut got hurt and LeBron assumed his role as the self-proclaimed "best player in the world". The answer is 2010.
Delay in court case deepens health insurance uncertainty
On Monday, the administration sought to delay the lawsuit again, effectively prolonging uncertainty over the fate of the payments. Bill Cassidy, R-La., who is among a small bipartisan group of lawmakers seeking compromise on health care legislation.
Right now, this is the best way to watch the 2017 National Basketball Association finals.
He finished the game with 35 points, booking his seventh straight finals appearance as the reigning champion Cavs wrapped up a 4-1 victory over the Celtics in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals. The shot gave him 29 points for the game and 5,989 points for his postseason career. The first two games of the Portland series, whatever happened, things got worse.
Kyrie Irving looked fantastic during this series.
With the unblemished Warriors waiting, James opted to douse them in accolades rather than cast any barbs.
While Cavs fans have played Kyrie Irving's three-pointer in the final minute of Game 7 on a loop since last June, the Cavs" All-Star guard can't remember the last time he watched "The Shot'. Obviously adding an MVP to a team that already has a two-time MVP makes them even more impressive.
That kind of lack of randomness is enough to buy in, and this curse is real until Smith's NBA Finals losing streak stops.
After the Cavaliers won the title in 2016, the focus turned to a player who wasn't in the NBA Finals: Kevin Durant, who was entering free agency after his team, the Oklahoma City Thunder, had blown a 3-1 lead against the Warriors in the Western Conference finals. "If I'm not scoring the ball, how can I still make an impact on the game?". "I'm doing my homework, I'm doing every possible thing to put this team in every situation to win".
