A Husker Heads To The NBA Finals

"I can't lie", Durant said, when comparing the 2012 Finals trip to this one.

Draymond Green just doesn't see the logic: How could three straight NBA Finals between Golden State and Cleveland possibly be boring?

How dare they have audacity to do it during primetime nationally televised games?

James said at a summer basketball camp a year ago that he found motivation in "this ghost I'm chasing, the ghost played in Chicago".

The NBA Finals are set to tip off next week. He scored just three points in the second half with none coming in the final 16:31 of the contest. But that seeding advantage is useless if your players are not heathy or rested enough to close the deal. In 2015, the Cavs and Dubs combined for a 2-3-1 O/U record in the NBA Finals (194.16 ppg vs. 196.7 ave total), and past year they finished 2-4-1 O/U in the finals (200.28 ppg vs. 207.93 ave total).

Jordan's 6 National Basketball Association titles are twice as many as James's 3, two of them won with the Miami Heat before he returned to Cleveland with the avowed aim of bringing a championship to his home state of Ohio. Last year, Curry was a shadow of his MVP-self after he sprained his MCL in the first round. We will certainly be remembering this series for a long time.

As pundits parsed the stats showing Jordan achieved his 5,987 playoff points in 179 post-season games while James reached 5,995 in his 212th post-season contest, James dismissed such conversations as "barbershop" debates. The only difference now is their chief rivals have caught up with their own deployment of star minutes. He's now ended their season four times in the past seven. Love finished off the finest playoff series of his career with 15 points and 11 rebounds.

It's not like the Warriors haven't had any health issues this spring.

And so, with that, Kevin Durant and Mike Brown arrive as the new major figures in Act 3. But, like San Antonio, their strength in numbers mantra has prioritized depth in order to best navigate the marathon that is an National Basketball Association season. The Giants won the Series 5-3 in the final best-of-nine matchup as a banged-up Ruth got just one plate appearance during the final three games, all won by the Giants. The big star for the Giants that year was future Yankees manager Casey Stengel, who hit an inside-the-park homer in the ninth inning to win Game 1 and drove in the only run in Game 3 with another homer.

The truth is nobody remembers the regular season.

Thomas will make $6.3 million next season, the final year of a deal he signed with the Phoenix Suns.

And now, with Durant and Brown infused, these two teams meet for the third straight time on the sport's biggest stage - a flawless script navigating them to this point in history.

The Golden State Warriors are likely the better team here.

"With this team, the center position is one that we're looking for", he said. It will be interesting to see if the National Hockey League, which has a similar regular season and playoff structure, but differing culture, follows suit.
