NBA Finals history: Cavs, Warriors rivalry in elite company

Houston has been one of the leading destinations to acquire LeBron's services this upcoming summer, and with close friend Paul on the roster, that could be the deciding factor between James playing for Houston next season, or somewhere else. The 33-year-old proved to be one of the greatest of all time in putting up numerous 40 plus point games in getting the Cavs all the way to the playoffs, including two exhausting seven game series against the Boston Celtics and Indiana Pacers.

Van Gundy, pride of Alhambra High School in Martinez, and Jackson, who preceded Steve Kerr as coach of the Warriors, are leaning toward a Warriors victory in four games - only because three games is mathematically impossible. "It was a heck of an opportunity and I wish them nothing but the very best.".

They face two Game 7's along the way as they were involved in a gruelling first-round series with the Indiana Pacers and a hard Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics.

The Warriors shoot for their 3rd crown in 4 seasons as James also tries to make the most out of his 8th straight Finals appearance. Jeff Green took Love's spot in the starting lineup as the Cavs won Game 7, 87-79. He sat out the 2015 finals with a separated shoulder. James managed a near triple-double average and was able to drag the Cavs to a decent number of individual wins along the way, but he just couldn't manage doing so four times in a series.
