Your team is part of one of the greatest rivalries of the 21st Century in any sport. Drexler and Portland were emerging as the next Western Conference powerhouse as the Magic Johnson-era Lakers declined."I feel good about our chances", LeBron James said this week.The 2017 NBA Finals will commence on June 2 at the Oracle Arena.And it's not like he's surrounded by a cast of nobody's either. "It will be a massive upset if they're not there each and every year". While the Cavs rebounded after a rough start and finished the season second in the East with a 53-29 record. The Cavaliers' big three was clicking on all cylinders in the last round against the Boston Celtics, and with stellar play also coming from the likes of Tristan Thompson and Kyle Korver, Cleveland is now the best version of itself it could possibly be, which will be needed against Golden State.

A lackluster postseason could be salvaged by a close, compelling series, which was the result of an National Basketball Association 2K17 simulation that ended with Durant leading the Warriors to a Game 7 rout. The Cleveland Cavaliers have won 10 of their last 16 road games.

LeBron's wing man is Kyrie Irving, who at times ranks as the third-to sixth-best player among the top six.

Durant is averaging 25.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.2 blocked shots a game in the Warriors' ideal playoff start.

All I can say to Cavs fans as we get closer to game time is: Enjoy this.

But if you want to know how it ends, it comes down to Game 7 with Kevin Durant scoring a game-high 41 points to help seal the Warriors' 132-106 victory and the title. "Nowadays a lot of people want to see Golden State-Cavs". The Cleveland Cavaliers are allowing 35.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.9 rebounds per game. And the way Cleveland point guard Kyrie Irving has been playing, it makes it even harder. And that juggernaut will require the Cleveland Cavaliers to play airtight defense in these NBA Finals.

New Zealand joined the exclusive space-race club today with the successful launch of a Rocket Lab test craft named Electron . Rocket Lab was founded by Beck and is privately held.

The Warriors star even called it "the ultimate rubber match" during an interview with TNT's David Aldridge. For the health of the league, I hope they are all classics.

After and eventful offseason which saw the Warriors add a former MVP in Kevin Durant, the Warriors have entered this Finals prohibitive favorites to defeat the Cavs.

The Cavs on the other hand have pretty much the same roster as last season with a few moves to bolster their bench. Cleveland shut down Indiana's Paul George, Toronto's DeMar DeRozan and Boston's Isaiah Thomas before he went down with a hip injury on the way to a 12-1 postseason record. I'm looking forward to it. Both these teams come in with high-powered offenses. Through the first three rounds of the playoffs, the Chef is putting up 28.6 points per game, shooting 43.1% from beyond the arc, and has an incredible plus-minus rating of plus-215.

Stephen Curry and LeBron James are ready to battle in a third straight NBA Finals.

"Kinda no debate after this who the better team is", Curry said. My heart says Cavs in six, but my brain says Warriors in seven. We just wanted to build good habits and have fun playing some basketball. But barring his way is a Golden State squad out to prove they are the super team dynasty of the era, not the Cavaliers.
