No surprise: It's Cavs-Warriors in the NBA Finals yet again

Rita Gibson | 28 May, 2017, 09:52

While there have been 14 rematches in NBA Finals history, this year's meeting between LeBron James' Cleveland Cavaliers and Stephen Curry's Golden State Warriors will be the first trilogy in league history.

Brown has been at the helm as the Warriors stormed unbeaten through the first three rounds of the playoffs with Kerr sidelined by debilitating symptoms stemming from back surgery two years ago.

He became the all-time leading scorer in the history of the playoffs during the third quarter, passing Michael Jordan, and 2017 marks the seventh consecutive year he has reached the NBA Finals. "Right now he's doing everything". Boston, San Antonio and New Orleans also would be penalized that spring when normally button-lipped coaches couldn't help themselves when thinking about the promise of the two freshmen. I'm sure he wishes he could as well. "From now on, 19 years in a row, always says, 'You owe me 100 dollars.' He won't take the money".

"I don't know right now if I have any emotions about going back coaching there", Brown said, per Spears. The Jazz-centric nature of what we do here at Purple & Blues notwithstanding, I usually try not to descend too far into the realm of homerism. "It'll be based on what day it is, how exactly he feels, how long he's felt well".

"The best team in our league the last three years", James said of the Warriors.

After the Warriors beat the Cavs for their first title in 40 years in 2015, Cleveland got revenge last season with a comeback from 3-1 down to give the city its first major championship since 1964. The Warriors experienced significant time without one of their best players, but this injury ultimately benefited the team. Still, he doesn't seem anywhere near ready to come back and coach the team, as Myers alluded to Thursday. The second installment of the NBA Finals series has seen that above Game 1 betting trend flipped on its ear, with underdogs bouncing back with a stronger performance in Game 2.

Kerr then coached this season without incident, before being forced away from the bench during the playoffs.

"I can't play for every team, so the truth of the matter is I left one team". I know we can play better. Perhaps even more shocking is the fact the underdog has won Game 2 outright a dozen times in the past 26 seasons. I should be saying this with more emotion because it's hard for me. "But he's a person and he's not feeling well".

"That's what makes it hard to have to sit here and say that the man that's hugely responsible for us being in the Finals three years in a row, in a moment he should be treasuring, can't do it". That's paramount. But beyond that, even if he did decide that what he most wanted was to ensure competitive balance in the National Basketball Association (that sounds so dumb when put like that, yet it's apparently what people expected from him), there's really a very limited amount of things he could have done.

"But right now, we're not at that point".
