Kyrie Irving urged LeBron James to embrace surpassing Michael Jordan

"He does owe me $100 and since he got his new deal hopefully he can afford to pay me now", Brown said Saturday post-practice.

"The comparison of always trying to compare people, either living or still playing or not playing - I think it's great for barbershops".

Added Smart, "We have to be nearly ideal playing against those guys". The real victor between these two teams will be decided in...oh, say 2024. "But nobody's going to feel sorry for me". With No.1 pick from this year's draft, the Celtics could add more significant depth to their team.

Waiting for them are the Warriors who soothed the burn of blowing a 3-1 lead a year ago by flying en masse to the Hamptons last July and recruiting Kevin Durant to join a lineup that had somehow won an NBA-record 73 games without the 2014 NBA MVP.

In Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals, he passed Michael Jordan in playoff points for sole possession of the top spot in NBA History.

The 2016 champion Cavs will battle the 2015 champion Warriors for the third straight year. King James or Air Jordan?

"I'm not in the right mind to even talk about Golden State", James said.

"I've been very blessed the last few years to be a part of this league and play on the big stage", James said. As Love snapped a selfie and Smith scrolled through his social media mentions, James was asked for his take on the impending battle against the Warriors.

Mike Brown is ready for Tyronn Lue to pay up on a almost two-decade-old bet.

The Warriors won an National Basketball Association record 73 regular-season games last season, then added one of the league's best players in Durant. "Because I think we saw it first hand, especially in these home games". Here's a look at how they've performed thus far.

"I love the fact that we get to see (James) go learn to win under Pat Riley and then come home and show his team how to win", Webber said.

A Warriors' team bent on revenge stands in his way. After having a solid series against the Houston Rockets, in which he averaged 18.8 points per game, Aldridge just mustered 15.5 points per contest against the Warriors.

"He's moving around a lot more", he said. I wanted to be Mike, so for my name to come up in any discussion with Michael Jordan is a wow factor.

James is more like Magic Johnson than Jordan in that he's even more a passer than a scorer.

Lue said didn't deliver any inspiring speech to his players before practice.

"That means more money?" "We're in the NBA Finals". We're not using that as an excuse. "Now we can start focusing on Golden State to get ready".

And remember, the Cavs have overcome long odds before.

James' series win in five games against the Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals is the sixth time he has played Boston.

The Cavs beat the Celtics 135-102 in game 5 on Thursday to book a 3rd straight NBA Finals clash with the Golden State Warriors.
