Steve Kerr's NBA Finals Status 'Up in the Air'

Steve Kerr's NBA Finals Status 'Up in the Air'

Maybe even death and taxes aren't certain anymore; science, medicine, global warming, politics throwing everything up in the air. But it's uncertain if Kerr will return to the bench for the NBA Finals. There is no need for investigations or hearings to know how we got here - the Cavaliers and Warriors facing off for the third straight time. And the National Basketball Association desperately needs that to happen.

"You talk about longevity and being able to play at a high level for a long period of time, I've been fortunate enough to be able to do that and take two franchises to four Finals apiece".

The 51-year-old Kerr underwent a procedure May 5 to fix a spinal fluid leak stemming from complications after a pair of back surgeries in 2015, after the Warriors won their first championship in 40 years during his first season as coach.

Who isn't consumed with this?

Thomas was forced to sit out the next three games as the Cavs wrapped up the series with a 4-1 margin to advance to the 2017 NBA Finals. I'm very happy about our accomplishment.

The NBA playoffs are always more fun when the league's rivalries flare up and teams start chirping at each other. "That's all I can give you right now". And I feel the same way.

James was 0-4 from three point range heading into the 4th quarter, and he altered his strategy to better suit the team's needs.

James is 28 points shy of overtaking Jordan as the postseason's leading scorer.

Player of the year Sinclair then fluffed a chance to win as he completely miss-hit his volley from a Griffiths pass allowing Lewis to make the save.

LeBron James and the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers are headed back to the NBA Finals. Tristen Thompson has learned to shoot free throws and still tosses bodies around under the rim. The initial injury forced him to miss only two regular season games until he aggravated it during Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semi-finals against the Washington Wizards last week. They've been super-impressive. It's kind of in our minds that that's who we were going to see.

Well, even if James may be playing possum with his compliments for the Warriors, he isn't wrong.

Cavs-Warriors was not only a foregone conclusion, but their dominance through the first three rounds contributed to the fewest pre-Finals games since the National Basketball Association expanded the first round to seven games.

Golden State punched its ticket by sweeping the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference finals, while the Cavaliers finished off the Boston Celtics in five games to win the Eastern Conference.

Of course, it's not just Cleveland's fun that Curry is eager to erase, as he'd also like to wipe away the memory of the Warriors blowing a 3-1 series lead to the Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Finals.

"We're not going to use that as motivation", Lue said.

"It's a good step forward, as a season as a whole, but you leave with a little bit of a taste in your mouth - like not playing as well [in Boston], and, man, you want to play well here because there is really no place like TD Garden in Boston", he said. "It's a great thing". "But we're going to enjoy this for a couple more days before we have to lock in on that juggernaut out west".
