Kevin Love clears concussion protocol, available for Game 1 of NBA Finals

A lot of people have cracked jokes about the weakness of LeBron James's teammates during the Cleveland Cavaliers' latest run to the NBA Finals.

For the fourth straight year, the NBA Finals will be contested by the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland as the two franchises set a historic mark. The only intrigue in the series is which game Cleveland wins (I'll take Game 3) and how because the Cavs have gone backwards this year and the Warriors are still the Warriors.

Tatum went on to give some cliche analysis about how anything can happen in the National Basketball Association, but it's quite obvious he doesn't give Cleveland much of a chance against Golden State.

"I don't even think about that, whether I'm starting or not", Green said Wednesday.

James credited Warriors' coach Steve Kerr for keeping a team with so many superstars so harmonious. "If we win this championship and I don't win Finals MVP, I'm going to be smiling just as wide and just as big". Green signed with Cleveland for the veteran's minimum at the beginning of the season, and although Jae Crowder was expected to be the primary backup to LeBron James, Green quickly outperformed him and his playing time began to increase throughout the season. Lue has to find a way to get Nance and his 20.0 postseason PER on the court.

Ronaldo , who recently secured his fifth Champions League trophy, joined the club in 2003 from Sporting Lisbon. It all added to the many talking points of an evening of joy and despair in Kiev few are likely to forget.

James discussed this season at length in a very interesting and honest interview with ESPN's Rachel Nichols, in which he laments the season getting off to a bad start in the offseason with trading Kyrie Irving.

Don't spend too long in the kitchen or elsewhere away from the television during halftime in the NBA Finals, because you risk missing the most important part of the games. It was huge third quarters in Games 6 and 7 that shot them past the Houston Rockets and into the finals, and there are times where it seems Golden State only truly concentrates on playing its best basketball just after halftime. Asked whether or not his relationship with Gilbert would indeed factor into his upcoming free agency, James offered little more than a cryptic smile. But in the playoffs, Cleveland used consecutive wins in Canada to begin a shockingly easy four-game sweep in the Eastern semifinals.

"... He (James) did not want Kyrie Irving traded", Smith said.

"They've got four Hall-of-Famers on their team, in Klay, Dray, Steph and KD". I'm glad. I wanted to see them another time.
