If you've watched any Celtics games past year, then you know how many times I would have to go through double and even triple teams, just to get my shot off. But "it would be a major upset if the Cleveland Cavaliers were to win the National Basketball Association championship".
"He took it the hardest, I thought, because he knew if he hadn't had the unfortunate injury, he's dragging us the last (way to the Finals)", Morey said, per Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.
Unfortunately for him, he won't be suiting up for Game 1 of the NBA Finals tonight. If James and the Cavaliers win Game 1, you know, the interest is going to skyrocket because they are going to have done what very few except for them, maybe, think they can do, which is win at Golden State. The question isn't even "will they coast in the Finals" as much as "how much will they coast in the Finals?"
Cleveland's Game 7 triumph in Boston also came with the bonus of (hopefully) preventing speculation about LeBron's free-agent future from completely swallowing up the actual championship series. The Warriors will fall into that trap, if led there.
"It will be interesting to see how competitive LeBron James can make this Finals, but any game they get in this Finals would be a huge upset to me", Van Gundy said.
None of that may matter against the Warriors.

NDP MP Nathan Cullen, who's riding is in British Columbia, was also not impressed. However, the $4.5-billion loan may not be enough to see the pipeline through.
George Hill, with his length and veteran savvy, may do okay on Stephen Curry. Both teams needed to survive Game 7s on the road to win their conference championships, winning those clinchers in shorthanded fashion - no Andre Iguodala for Golden State, no Kevin Love for Cleveland.
Green is one of the Cavaliers' x-factors, and if Cleveland is somehow able to pull off the improbable upset, Green will nearly certainly be a main reason why. There are guys all around who can do things, make plays and are threats.
A large part of Cleveland's hopes of putting the Warriors on the back foot rests on punishing Golden State from beyond the arc.
So when James eventually writes the book of his life, he said he's going to give the Warriors a nod.
Last month, Kerr became concerned his team's defense wouldn't return to its top form after Golden State struggled late in the regular season and even endured a particularly poor stretch in which the Warriors dropped seven of 10 games. Which means making a lot of threes. None of those guys are back this season.
After Game 7 against the Celtics, LeBron admitted being incredibly exhausted. If the Warriors can get James exhausted, they will have an even better chance of winning this series.
Smith won't allow LeBron James to go unchallenged when rewriting history. In the Boston series, however, he had 33 points and 11 rebounds in 73 minutes in the Cavs' final two victories. That just doesn't look like it will be enough.
