The opening NBA Finals odds don't make sense

29 May 2017

It's a safe bet that LeBron James will have the more spectacular statistical series.

The Warriors are stomach-churning scary. "We're in the NBA Finals". After all, he has slayed behemoths before.

Whether the addition of Durant to the Warriors is motivating James, he doesn't care that bookmakers in Las Vegas have installed the Cavs as big underdogs. "I mean he's one of the most competitive players in the league, and he kind of spoke this into existence".

And then, nearly as if he was trying to remind himself that he's got three championship rings and is frightful in his own right, James recalled other fearsome postseason opponents - San Antonio and Boston.

The Cavs can reach their third straight NBA Finals, and LeBron James his seventh in a row, with a win in Game 5 on Thursday night in Boston. "And if you add Pop (Gregg Popovich) in there, that's five Hall of Famers".

An injury-ravaged Cleveland team went 33-49 before Brown was sacked again in May of 2014 - shortly before James returned to Cleveland as a free agent and two-time National Basketball Association champion with the Heat. I think you've found two great teams, and we've played that way, and maybe people don't appreciate it because of a blowout or because of a sweep. "This is a high-powered (Golden State) team".

North Korea test-fires another ballistic missile
North Korea has attempted seven missile tests in 2017, including two recent tests in one week alone, keeping the world on edge. May 26: Moon's government says it will allow a South Korean civic group to contact North Korea to help fight malaria.

"I've played against Ray (Allen), KG (Kevin Garnett), Paul (Pierce), (Rajon) Rondo and Doc (Rivers)". "But nobody's going to feel sorry for me".

If there's one thing that we've learned so far this season, it's that the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors are clearly the two best teams in the National Basketball Association.

The win gives Cleveland a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series and leaves them firmly on track for a third consecutive NBA Finals showdown against the Golden State Warriors. "It's been the best season of my career, but it's also been the toughest year of my life".

Hard to believe, but this version - with Durant - might be even better.

Golden State has glowed in this postseason, becoming the first team to start 12-0 while winning by an average of 16.3 points per game - the highest margin league history. But after Durant was voted the 2014 MVP, James probably figured those days had come to an end.

The Warriors are using Durant the way he envisioned, but Lue has noticed changes in the All-Star.

Britain braced for possibility of another terrorist attack
Armed police mingled with spectators as crowds gathered to watch the runners, including mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham. The stadium held a minute of silence for the bombing victims. "We won't let hate win", she said.

"You adapt to the culture", he said. "I'm just waiting to hear back". So, it's the right thing to do.

"He's one of the most unsafe guys we have in the world already", James said of Durant Sunday after practice at Cleveland Clinic Courts.

Not just any playoff game. With Miami, he won two back-to-back championships with a roster that included Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade.

James isn't anxious about point spreads or any odds. Green is the player that will swing the series.

Jordan and the Bulls eventually figured out how to beat Laimbeer and the Bad Boy Pistons, but they are still arguably the greatest rival of his career.

Sources say Comey acted on Russian intelligence he knew was fake
His press conference caused a firestorm of controversy and drew criticism from both Democrats and Republicans. The FBI reportedly had doubts about the document, and by August , they determined it was fake.
