As you might expect, four of the top five players listed come from the Warriors but it is Kevin Durant, not Stephen Curry nor LeBron James, that enters the proceedings as the odds-on favorite to bring home individual glory.
According to SportsOddsHistory.com, the Cavs, who now possess +650 (bet $100 to win $650) odds of winning the series, are the biggest Finals underdog since the website began tracking such data since 2002. Before that, head coach Steve Kerr called the first quarter one of the worst quarters of basketball that his team had played. But, tweets from players, fans and other notables were flying fast and furious as numerous calls went against the Rockets including a couple several blatant no-calls that seemed to turn the tide for the Warriors.
And White, who hasn't played a regular-season or playoff game this season, isn't the only former Seminole headed to this year's NBA Finals.
Golden State will meet the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals for the fourth consecutive year. That's tied for the largest point spread in a Finals game since 1991, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
The Golden State Warriors have been installed as overwhelming favorites over James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the fourth straight Finals meeting between the two teams. "I'm just proud of the way we battled", Klay Thompson said. He was injured in the final moments of Game 5. Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, and Lonzo Ball cannot only learn about the nuances of LeBron's game but they will learn something that has been missing from the team: winning.

Vettel said a better idea is to let the drivers have a real say about the basic structure of the auto regulations. Bottas led the first session and defending champion Hamilton the second at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
"I'm just trying to play in a way that will help us win a championship".
If Cleveland is going to pull off the upset, it may require Golden State beating themselves, much like the Houston Rockets did in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals.
Golden State rallied in both Game 6 and Game 7, as Paul looked on helplessly.
"With that being said, Houston, the majority of the (conference finals) series, they did a very good job defensively following game plan discipline".
Even before this recent dominant run, the Warriors have a long history of playoff success. But it's just cool that every opportunity you step on the floor in the playoffs, the farther you go, somebody is going to challenge you.
