LeBron James wears shorts suit to Game 1

Posted June 01, 2018

"At least one (year), maybe one or two seasons - me, Melo, D-Wade, CP - we can get a year in".

When LeBron, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all teamed up in Miami eight years ago - all three players left around $15 million on the table. Did Steph Curry score more points in the Warriors' wins compared with their losses?

"Teams have had their opportunities to beat the Cavs over the last four years and teams have had opportunities to beat the Warriors over the last four years", James said.

I'm going to assume that the Cavs stay with their "big" lineup to kick off the series, even if Kevin Love returns for Game 1.

Third quarter, 9:02, 66-59 Warriors: JaVale McGee surprisingly started the second half and Golden State began the quarter on a 10-3 run, including four points from McGee. "I have a responsibility to lead, in more ways than one, and I take that very seriously". "So we're going to tell the same stories about James and [Kevin] Durant and [Stephen] Curry that some may just be hearing for the first times and others may be sick of hearing". Both teams needed to survive Game 7s on the road to win their conference championships, winning those clinchers in shorthanded fashion - no Andre Iguodala for Golden State, no Kevin Love for Cleveland. We've been the hunted for the last few years. "'You have so many people looking up to you, you have so many kids to inspire, and you, yourself, you have always talked about be as great as you can be every day, ' so I kind of hit that switch before the trade deadline".

Golden State might feel it, but it's not visible.

The Warriors, by virtue of a 58-50 edge in wins during the regular season, will have the home-court advantage in the best-of-seven series. Meanwhile, LeBron is here with Jeff Green and Kyle Korver, playing for his hometown team despite its inept owner and front office because that's where his presence is the most meaningful, and refusing to accept less than a maximum salary because that's what's best for the players' union. That's not out of the realm of possibility, but neither is Cleveland pulling off a truly incredible upset. The narrative would change quickly if Cleveland were to steal one in Oakland and push the defending champion Warriors into a deep series.

That might be the only drama ahead.
