Cool Hand Lue: Cavs coach keeps NBA champs calm amid chaos

Cool Hand Lue: Cavs coach keeps NBA champs calm amid chaos

Maybe even death and taxes aren't certain anymore; science, medicine, global warming, politics throwing everything up in the air. "Now we can start focusing on Golden State to get ready".

Although he ruled himself out of Game 1, Kerr left the door open to returning during the rematch of the last two NBA Finals.

Cleveland-Golden State 3.0 is the matchup fans worldwide expected and wanted, and James believes they're in for quite a show.

Who isn't consumed with this? How will Golden State guard Kyrie Irving?

After Golden State failed to repeat as champions following a campaign in which they had a record 73 wins during the 82-game regular season, they acquired Durant, by far the biggest prize of the free agent market. "I would say I've gotten a little bit better, that's why I'm here talking to you right now, but you can probably tell I'm not sitting here happy-go-lucky". "I'm still feeling the effects".

From the opening tip of Game 5, the Cavs basically played their greatest hits.

"When you're growing up and you see Michael Jordan it's nearly like a god".

James rejoined the Cavaliers in 2014 determined to bring a championship to his home state and brought the team back to relevance after four consecutive losing seasons. J.R. Smith plays, ahem, a thinking man's game - fitting in on offense while excelling on defense.

"If you're able to pass Michael Jordan on this kind of stage, in this playoff magnitude, it just means LeBron's been doing a lot of winning", Cavs coach Ty Lue said. It felt like we grew as the year went on.

Well, even if James may be playing possum with his compliments for the Warriors, he isn't wrong.

James is nearing the end of his 14th season in the National Basketball Association, has won the MVP Award four times, is sitting on three National Basketball Association titles and has never won a scoring title.

Cleveland were the first team to draft a Canadian player with the first overall draft pick when they selected Anthony Bennett in 2013.

"12-0 is great", Stephen Curry said when the Warriors finished off the Spurs.

"As insane as it sounds", said Boston coach Brad Stevens, "going into halftime we had cut it to at least a manageable number". Plural. If you're going to go down as one of the dominant teams of an era - like the Shaq/Kobe Lakers, or Jordan's Bulls, or the Celtics and Lakers of the "80s, etc. - there needs to multiple rings on fingers". "It's a great thing". "But we're going to enjoy this for a couple more days before we have to lock in on that juggernaut out west". It's not the end of the world.

The main issue with this argument is that fact that is lends too much credence to the team and not enough on the individual.

"Once we get to Game 1 it might be a good time to make a decision one way or another", he said. "I think I fell in love with the game because of Mike". The two closest active players: Tony Parker (4,012 points, 10th place all-time) and former teammate Dwyane Wade (3,871, 12th place). "Drawing two defenders and no matter if you win or lose, if you make the right play, it's OK".

Maybe if Kawhi Leonard didn't sprain his ankle or Isaiah Thomas didn't bang up his hip, if Rudy Gobert were healthy or Rajon Rondo didn't break his hand, this postseason would have been different. Griffin, who has been the Cleveland Cavaliers general manager since 2014, is not unemployed-he's still the GM of the Cavaliers. Durant was spectacular in other ways, but the win-loss ratio should concern the Warriors.
