Cavs the champs but Warriors the favorites in the NBA Finals

In that light, a club can reward one designated veteran player per year with a contract starting at 35 percent of next year's projected $101 million salary cap. The addition of Durant, who is widely considered the second-best player in the league behind James, makes Golden State the betting favorite to win the Finals rematch. That part honestly surprises me. They destroyed the Cavs in their last meeting in January.

"Any time someone beats you, you'd love to play them", Green said. It's the first time in National Basketball Association history that two teams will face off for a third straight season, and this year the Warriors come with some added firepower with the signing of the century: Kevin Durant. Given all the pressure on the Warriors to perform and the incredibly high expectations, one can argue that the Warriors have more at stake. The Cavs can flood the floor with three point marksmen too and have been hot this post-season beyond the line. Both the Cavs and LeBron will have plenty at stake.

'I think greatness is good for a league, ' said Van Gundy.

Overall, when adding up the rosters, the Warriors have a big edge. Maybe the biggest advantage of any key category in this series. This year they were smarter. The Cavs defense will finish the job again. They have been better in the post-season but not awesome.

"You can look at Golden State and how they're playing, it's pretty dominant", Minnesota Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau said on Tuesday. This is Durant's best chance yet.

Hopefully, the ad will be better luck in 2017 and will result in the Warriors winning their second title in three years.

Their combined 24-1 record is the best mark for two teams entering the Finals in National Basketball Association history.

'So for me I think it's a great result for the National Basketball Association'. So how do you pick a victor?

When you have two unbelievable teams, it becomes pretty irrelevant.

However, according to a report from ESPN, Durant is willing to take less than a max deal in order to keep the Warriors' core together for the foreseeable future.

Green is a vital cog in the Warriors engine room, their greatest contributor on offensive plays as well as being one of their best defensive stoppers. LeBron will have to dominate the series and that still may not be enough. "I wish for him that I could sit here and say we're debating that he's feeling really good". "I mean past year, right from Game 1 against Houston he was injured and fighting an uphill battle". Golden State cruised through the playoffs and was in the driver's seat in the Finals. In saying that, he can still have great games.
