'Beast' of the West? bring it on - LeBron

"It's like, we're in the NBA Finals".

Cleveland's coach ducked into the shadows, his preferred location.

"I'm okay, I'm alright", Kerr said. Will the Cavs bring home back-to-back championships, or will Golden State redeem themselves after blowing a 3-1 lead a year ago? What adjustments and philosophies to they have to adopt to hoist the Larry O'Brien trophy? A student of the game, he's old school with a fresh perspective.

After the Warriors added Kevin Durant to their roster last summer, a championship duel between the Warriors and the Cavs has been predicted and highly anticipated. Cleveland is two-deep at every position except small forward, where they have the top player in the National Basketball Association on their side. His players credit Lue's soothing, steady influence - on and off the floor - as almost as vital to their success as a clutch Kyrie Irving 3-pointer. Even opposing players and coaches are recognizing the type of impact that James has on the Cavs. "And I'm my biggest critic, so for me to say that, I feel pretty confident in that". That's why I relate to him so much. Irving scored 26 in the game to Curry's 17 points and four turnovers, including the infamous behind-the-back pass that rolled out of bounds in the fourth quarter.

Is this the biggest challenge of his career? You may say that their 25-point blowouts lack beauty, but that's more of an indictment of your surface-level assessment of what constitutes beauty. Cleveland blitzed, double-teamed and did all it could take away the other team's offensive threat.

In so many ways, Steve Kerr defines the Golden State Warriors.

"Hell yeah", he said, his voice rising. I totally understand and respect that the NBA TV partners paid $24 billion USA for a nine-year deal which is now in Year 1, so they dictate dates. They have a lot of options.

That's bad for the National Basketball Association, which needs us to continue talking about who is the greatest player ever. Steph is making tough shots, Klay is making tough shots and KD is making tough shots.

Meanwhile, Golden State should be that much tougher with Draymond Green and Javale McGee in the game and they have the reserves to bring help off the bench if need be.

The spotlight will shine brightest on Kevin Durant and LeBron James, for if Cleveland can pull off a (slight) upset and win the title, it will scream volumes about each star's place in the sport's history.

The Cavs hold him in the highest regard, as anyone might with the league's single-season all-time 3-point record holder. He also added two turnovers, one rebound and one assist. "Going high, going low".

"The whole underdog thing is amusing to me because at the end of the day, we're defending our title", Kevin Love said. Came back here, got the supporting cast he needed.

If he's unable to return for Game 1, Kerr said he expects a final decision on his status to be made shortly after. "So you're doing all that for no reason". Me as a player, and as well as a moment that I share with my teammates.

Lue is a stickler for detail, and he won't cut any corners preparing for another dance with the Warriors.

A terrific season for them: Atlantic Division champs, top seed in the East and an Eastern Conference Finals appearance.

“You adapt to the culture, ” he said. I address the team quite a bit.

One game stood out more than the rest though: Christmas Day in Cleveland against the Cavaliers.
