LeBron James Breaks Michael Jordan's Playoff Scoring Record

May 29, 2017, 04:14

Vegas is betting against them and the bookies are hardly alone.

In the Eastern Conference Finals, everyone thought the Cavs were going to sweep the Celtics.

LEBRON JAMES: Now, when you're growing up and you're seeing Michael Jordan, you - it's nearly like a god.

Just don't try to tell them that.

"I'm just at peace with myself; I'm at peace with myself as a basketball player, most importantly", Durant said. "We're trying to repeat, which is so hard to do". We will use it as motivation, but the idea of playing into it? I wouldn't say so, because at moments like this, when they needed a basket or a bucket, who do you really go to on a consistent basis?

"We're definitely disappointed. I feel like if we weren't, there would be a problem", he said.

"Playing in this league, you can't take anything for granted", Warriors guard Stephen Curry said after the Warriors beat the San Antonio Spurs 129-115 in Game 4 on Monday night. Remember, before the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead to the Cavs in last season's Finals, Durant and the Thunder blew a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference Finals to the Warriors.

"Everyone wants to say, 'Ah man, this is boring and this, that and the other, ' but you usually don't appreciate something until you don't have it anymore", Green said, via ESPN.

"He's a guy who said he wanted us", Love said, "and he has us - starting next Thursday".

Of course Golden State knows exactly who he is after he torched them previous year and gutted them with the game clinching shot in Game 7.

The Warriors were strong favorites past year after setting an National Basketball Association record with 73 wins during the regular season.

In my opinion, James has already lost to Michael Jordan in the battle for the title of Greatest of All Time.

The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers will meet in the NBA Finals.

For James, the Finals are an annual rite. Golden State has been the best team in our league for the last three years and they added an MVP. "Collectively, we can take away what an elite (team) looks like". "It was an awesome time to see two great players who have Hall of Fame potential from the beginning".

Even if the NBA's top two teams have steamrolled their way right to the place everybody figured they'd be when the season started all those months ago. (Surgery is) not the No. 1 option right now but it could be once the swelling goes down.

"Eastern Conference finals, that's the biggest stage I've ever been on", Thomas said at the team's practice facility in Waltham, Massachusetts.

"He's moving around a lot more", he said.

Kyrie Irving is the best ballhandler in the game today which makes him, arguably, the best ball handler in the history of the game. "I mean, he's one of the most competitive players in the league, and he kind of spoke this into existence". And then we go from there and attack that, whatever it may be. Bryant went 5-2 in the NBA Finals. That's enough motivation alone.

"It's just been impressive, and I'm sad that it ended the way it did". We're not using that as an excuse. They're coming out and they're hitting us, they don't care who you are. "I'd love to be here long-term and win championships here".
