LeBron James Asked the Cavs Not to Trade Kyrie Irving

LeBron James Asked the Cavs Not to Trade Kyrie Irving

He added: "Golden State is one of the best teams I've ever played". But just how big is that gap?

"Just going against the Warriors in the last three years in the Finals, I kind of figured or thought that they could get it done", he said. I won't look at raw plus/minus here, which is rife with issues.

The Cavs upsetting the Warriors was such a traumatic experience for the Dubs that Draymond Green supposedley recruited Kevin Durant from the parking lot after Game 7. All three are some of the biggest names for some of the biggest sports apparel companies in the world, Nike (NKE - Free Report) for James and Durant, and Under Armour (UAA - Free Report) for Curry. Despite the chain of events, James managed to play all 48 minutes in Game 7, going the distance in a playoff game for the first time since 2006.

The Cavs have twice been pushed to seven games, overcome injuries and gotten much-needed contributions to ease the burden on James from role players Green, Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.

While Love has been solid, Smith and Thompson haven't always come through this season for Cleveland. With James, those skyrocketed to +2 and +11.1, respectively. "He's going to go do some things today and see how he feels".

On Sunday night, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers were able to pull off the improbable.

The Warriors have more talent, by a very wide margin. Steph Curry and the Warriors overwhelmed LeBron James and Cavs, 4-1. That's a tough hill to climb, and you can see why numbers-based projections see the Warriors as the overwhelming favorites. "It's been good, it's been bad".

When the two teams met for the title in 2016, James used a superhuman effort to lead Cleveland back from a 3-1 deficit to win the championship, marking the first time an National Basketball Association team had pulled off such a comeback. Each team's offense is evaluated on four stylistic spectrums. Boston has won eight times, most recently in 2008. He is, after all, averaging an impressive 11.1 points, 11.6 rebounds, 8.1 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.5 blocks while playing better defense than anyone else in the playoff field. However, in the Western Conference Finals, the Rockets were able to goad the Cavaliers into a slower and more static offensive approach.

"You gotta give those guys a chance, especially when you've been there before with them and you know who they are". "It's another thing to live up to them".

To project the series, I am using my in-season game projection model.

"The level that I can play at is to be seen, but the level that I put into the game and put into my craft is who I am", he said. If you ask Thompson, it's up to the rest of the National Basketball Association to catch-up... the Warriors are just simply ahead of the game.

Game 1 will be hosted by the Warriors at Oracle Arena on Thursday night. The Cavaliers best shot is to hold serve on homecourt until Game 7 and just hope LeBron can pull off another all-time performance to push them over the edge.

Depending on the health of Kevin Love, James may need to find another gear in the NBA Finals.
