LeBron James breaks Michael Jordan's playoff scoring record


28 May, 2017

Cleveland Cavaliers heading to 3rd straight NBA Finals. The 2016 champions versus the 2015 champions. It's the matchup most expected, the matchup most predicted, and probably the matchup the Cavaliers and Warriors wanted as well. "It's time to get back to the grind".

"I'm not in the right mind to even talk about Golden State", James said. This is the clash National Basketball Association general managers expected back in the fall, this is what some media and fans tried to hype in the Cavaliers' and Warriors' two regular-season meetings and, now that it's here, this is what must carry 2016-17 to a hoped-for climactic conclusion. Cleveland won by one on Christmas Day, Golden State prevailed by 35 on January 16. I think the biggest thing for me sitting here today after breaking the all-time scoring record in playoff history is that I did it just being me.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors meet Thursday in game one of the 2017 NBA Finals at the Oracle Arena on ABC.

The New York Giants beat the New York Yankees in two World Series before the Yankees got revenge in a third year in the 1920s. So you have to appreciate it.

Already, the back-and-forth is underway. Cleveland head coach Tyronn Lue had some fun with his superstar's comments at Roda's expense after the victory.

Roda then showed face during the Cavaliers' Game 4 win over the Celtics on Tuesday. But there's also a clear respect level between the clubs as well. They're going to challenge us a lot, offensively, defensively, mentally, physically. Get the popcorn ready.

For all intents and purposes, this may be the most anticipated Finals matchup in National Basketball Association history.

Look, the only way we'll ever know which player was truly the G.O.A.T.is to have them play one-on-one in the prime of their careers. Draymond Green probably will spend more time on James than Durant will, while Cleveland doesn't have an obvious alternate defender to shadow Durant.

It was a very welcomed sight in Irving's case, after he rolled his left ankle in the third quarter of Cleveland's Game 4 win.

Rebel Wilson gets emotional as she testifies in defamation trial
Tweets sent by Ms Wilson outing another journalist at Bauer Media supposedly contacting her grandmother were also read in court. It was not a concern, he said, if they had previously seen one of Ms Wilson's films, Pitch Perfect and Bridesmaids among them.

"I told him not to take the moment for granted".

"It's just my personal goal to keep me motivated, that's all", James said.

They'll collide again, starting next week. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 38.9 percent from beyond the arc and 81.3 percent from the free throw line.

The Cavs have also surrounded James with stud shooters in Kyle Korver and J.R. Smith.

"It's a little different, definitely".

"We're just focused on Boston". He's been present at practice and recently traveled with the team at the end of the Warriors' sweep against the Spurs. So it's a little different now, obviously.

The storylines are many. Playing without the injured Pau Gasol, the Bulls had a chance to take a 3-1 lead at home against a Cavaliers team with a hobbled Kyrie Irving. Sure, both players were the catalyst on their respective teams and both had an epic No. 2 and great supporting cast, but this hands too much credit (or deficit) to the player for what the team did. How will Cleveland try to contain Curry?

Avery Bradley led Boston with 23 points as the East regular season leaders fell in five games.

The biggest task awaits.
