LeBron James isn't the only one involved in eight consecutive NBA Finals

Can LeBron James pull off another ridiculous feat?

You'll be hard-pressed to find anybody backing the Ohio-based franchise to beat the Warriors but anything is possible when you have LeBron on your side.

But the 2018 Finals are shaping up much like last season's championship series, which lasted five games. The oddsmakers in Las Vegas agree. But at the same time, Golden State hasn't played that well lately, and LeBron James suits up for the other team, making that +650 sound like some pretty good value. This is why they play the games, unfortunately, I just don't see it ending well for the Cavaliers. "It doesn't matter what the story line is going to be, it doesn't matter if we're picked to win or not".

When the Golden State Warriors forced a Game 7 against the Houston Rockets, it was assumed that a lot of people would tune in, and the people didn't disappoint. Houston did not help themselves with atrocious perimeter shooting; in Game 7, the Rockets missed an astounding 27 straight three-point field goals.

James tallied 35 points and grabbed 15 rebounds to lead the Cavaliers to a Game 7 win over Boston in the Eastern Conference finals.

Grealish was Villa's brightest spark throughout the encounter, with the playmaker on the end of a number of meaty challenges. His bewitching second-half surge upfield did deserve to finish with the ball rippling the net.

Fred: United made a big bid for me
Martial's current contract expires in the summer of 2019, although United do have the option to extend that for a further year. Fred was one of Shakhtar's best players in the 2017-18 season as they picked up another Ukrainian league title.

And over these four years since James returned to northeast OH, the Warriors are 17-9 against the Cavaliers.

Despite all the talent, the Warriors still needed seven games to defeat the top-seeded Rockets in the Western Conference finals. The team's depth is better now, but even then, this James has had to carry the weight of getting the squad this far. According to Synergy Sports, nearly two-thirds (63 percent) of the catch-and-shoot attempts by its opponents are unguarded, resulting in teams shooting 40 percent from behind the arc on these possessions. While the Warriors suffered from the loss of Andre Iguodala - the 2015 Finals Most Valuable Player, injured in Game 3 of the series - his absence did not hurt them almost as much as Paul's did Houston.

"So he's looking at it from a different vantage point".

Kevin Durant hit another three-pointer to take his personal tally to 30 points as the Warriors turned on the class in the final stages of the contest. No, but if Cleveland is going to have any chance at pulling off the upset, this is where it all starts.
