THE Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers will meet in the NBA Finals for the third straight season. "To not be able to go back out there in that second half and continue that series was painful".
James still trails Jordan in one key area: titles.
But James' jump in playoff scoring has rekindled the conversation over which player is better, James or Jordan. "Just day by day", Kerr said to The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears when asked of his plans.
It never happened between Magic Johnson's Lakers and Larry Bird's Celtics.
Five games confirmed what most sound-minded basketball observers already knew.
LeBron James surpassed Michael Jordan for the top spot on the NBA's all-time playoff scoring list on Thursday night. His supporting cast of Kevin Love (15 points, 11 boards) and Kyrie Irving (24 points, 7 assists) more than played their part. The addition of those pieces alone won't be enough to get past a Cavs team that's full of players in their prime in my mind. They'll meet that team next week in the only series in these playoffs to matter.

Every other team this season will be hazy in the game's long memory. "I think maybe people just fail to realize that you just have two great teams and don't appreciate that".
But the Warriors have some serious strength, with the reigning back-to-back MVP Stephen Curry leading All Stars Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. But damned if it won't be brilliant to watch James, a genius in his field, furrow his brow and dive into the puzzle headlong.
Otherwise, Ainge is better off kicking the can towards the end of the decade, waiting out what could be a lengthy dynasty by the Cavs and Warriors in their respective conferences. "The way he's playing, he's deserving of all the credit he's getting", Irving said before listing some of the Celtics who shone in Thomas' absence. We've played that way, and maybe people don't appreciate it because of a blowout or because of a sweep. So it makes it even more hard. Cleveland is, in 97% of its matchups, more than capable of erasing any of its mistakes with an overwhelming run.
Once again, it has been left to the Cavaliers to put a stop to Golden State's dominance after the rest of the West could not.
