Warriors' Kerr will not coach Game One of NBA Finals

Act III in this trilogy is overloaded with story lines, with the biggest being whether James and Co. have enough firepower to go toe-to-toe with the Warriors, who added superstar Kevin Durant to a team that won 73 games a year ago before its Finals flameout. Apparently the teams are driving from California to Ohio. You saw me in the fourth quarter of Game 2.

"I'd like to tell you I'm ready", Kerr said, addressing reporters after Monday's practice here at the team's facility because his interim coach, Mike Brown, was out with the flu. How could it possibly get better than this?

There's a difference between an athlete who is hated, and one who has haters.

Still, when Green gets a mismatch, he has the power to bully opponents and score in the paint, something the Cavs will need to consider if they attempt to use the switch strategy from last year's Finals. In fact, Jordan's Bulls never even were forced to a Game 7 in the Finals.

Until next year, when we get to do it again, when it's Warriors-Cavaliers IV, and we look back at 2017 and wonder why we were so excited back then, considering we now get this to watch.

"It's not my preference to rest".

"So it's the even-keel mentality about our coach and it definitely helps us as players when we're going out into a war".

Neither player will win MVP in 2017, a season ruled by the freakish statistics of Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook and Houston's James Harden. The James in Return of the King is a legendary player, shadow coach, wannabe general manager, sensitive essayist, obsessive locker room neat freak "miffed" by the "slobs" on his team, bullying big brother and petulant tweeter.

"I only play blackjack in Vegas anyway, so it doesn't matter", he said. "I look at it as an owner for my fans". Players like Chris Paul and Kyle Lowry will make any team better, but likelihood is being taken into account here. They like to see them out there. They've won 84 percent of their games over the past three seasons. He's done too much already for anything to weaken it now.


Taylor said there were also concerns after the league started a 10-year, $24 billion television deal with Turner and ABC/ESPN.

Curry is the lone weak link for the Warriors on defense - at least on their crunch-time lineup, affectionately dubbed the "Hamptons 5" by the Mercury News' Tim Kawakami.

How does President Trump's budget proposal impact your agency?

And while Grantham said, "There's always a racial component to factor into these things", he, like Elmore, agreed that the resistance to James was more rooted in other factors.

With just under five minutes remaining in regulation and the Warriors clinging to a one-point lead, Curry got too fancy with the ball and tried a behind-the-back pass to Klay Thompson in the right corner. They struggled for long stretches during the regular season, although they've managed to improve somewhat during the playoffs.

The increase in rest games seems directly correlated to the 2013-14 season, when the league lost almost 5,000 games to injury or illness. He's the reason this year's Warriors team is superior to the 2015-16 squad despite winning six fewer regular-season games.

"It's a hard thing because you can't tell players to play if they're injured", Taylor said. "There seems to be a theme when I'm out, I think the team is like 108-2".

Fans can complain, but both of these "superteams" were born of circumstances other teams can't recreate (which is to say, there's nothing for the league to do to "fix" this). Green said earlier this season.

When the latter would happen, Walton wasn't offended, but he was irked because he didn't like people diminishing the worth of a profession he came to treasure while a operating under Lute Olson, Phil Jackson and Kerr.
