Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James on his legacy and seven-straight Finals

Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James on his legacy and seven-straight Finals

Although he ruled himself out of Game 1, Kerr left the door open to returning during the rematch of the last two NBA Finals. So Cavs fans looking for any extra reason to feel confident that LeBron and company will once again hoist the Larry O'Brien trophy this year should rejoice that Smith went on record with his pick for the series and thinks the Warriors will win.

"I'm ready, but I'm not ready to coach yet", Kerr said.

"I'm not well enough to coach a game and I know that (because) I coached all 82 games and I did OK. I'm still feeling a lot of the effects of what I've got going on". I could make it through. "The first two games of the Portland series, whatever happened, things got worse".

Agassi era off to flyer as Djokovic progresses
Coach Andre Agassi (right) and Marko Djokovic, the brother of Novak, watch the first round action from the sidelines yesterday. In the women's section, Garbine Muguruza downed 2010 victor Francesca Schiavone 6-2, 6-4 in her first round tie.

Kerr has been absent from the Golden State bench for 10 straight playoff games as he deals with complications from 2015 back surgery. He took an indefinite league of absence to find a solution for migraines stemming from back surgery almost two years ago. Among the symptoms he is dealing with are severe headaches, neck pain and nausea. I'm taking part in practices, helping with the messaging, taking part in coaching meetings, but I'm not on the sidelines during games. Twice with the Miami Heat and previous year with the Cavs.

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are four wins away from repeating as National Basketball Association champions in what may go down as one of the greatest championship showdowns ever, but standing in their way is a sharpshooting Golden State Warriors team that beat them in the 2015 Finals. Brown has taken over as the team's head coach since Game 3. So he has to make those (in-game) decisions. "It's his team, but he's also taking my advice and counsel from behind the scenes". So it's not easy, but he's obviously doing a good job. There seems to be a theme when I'm out. "Still waiting for 'Ahhhhhh!'" Kerr said, reaching his hands to the sky as if to receive some miracle healing.

In fact, the least expensive 2017 NBA Finals game, so far, appears to be Game 3 in Cleveland, the first home matchup for the Cavaliers. "Plus you've got a rubber match in that they will play three Finals in a row and each has won one", said Dorfman.
