But that doesn't mean the Warriors are without weaknesses.
One of the few things that hasn't gone right for Golden State this postseason has been Klay Thompson's shooting. One, James is the best player alive and his entire motivation now seems to revolve around collecting more rings. Going back to his days in the Eastern Conference playing for the Philadelphia 76ers, Iguodala's combination of size (6-foot-6, 215 pounds), smarts and athleticism gives him as good a chance as anyone of trying to slow down the unstoppable force that James is on a basketball court.
James called the Warriors "the best team in our league for the last three years" even before adding 2014 league MVP Kevin Durant during the off-season.
Cavaliers in 2016 became the first team to rally from a 3-1 NBA Finals deficit and win the title, which was the first in franchise history. "But I think we got a great group of guys, headlined by one of the best guys to ever do it".
Known in the league as "DNP-Rest", the practice of sitting healthy players to avoid injury and fatigue has grown in popularity as teams focus more on reducing the wear and tear on the stars that drive the league.
Path to Finals: Won Pacific Division; Beat Portland 4-0 in Western Conference quarter-finals; beat Utah 4-0 in conference semi-finals; beat San Antonio 4-0 in conference final.
Much to the National Basketball Association commissioner's consternation, both the Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers rested star players down the stretch.
Cavs chief marketing officer Tracy Marek explained the decision to shake up the team's logo, via an official release from NBA.com: "While the foundation of the Cavaliers brand remains steeped in traditions that link generations of fans, it is important that our brand identity reflects who we are in the present and where we are going in the future".
"Personally I think it is a legit concern", said Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor, chairman of the NBA's board of governors. Love is averaging 17.2 points and 10.2 rebounds this postseason and shooting 47.5 percent from 3-point range, giving the Cavs a floor spacer that is also a terror on the glass who may be able to exploit the Warriors when they go to a smaller lineup with Draymond Green at the center.
- Cleveland and Golden State have met 19 times since the start of the 2014-15 regular season, including their two NBA Finals matchups. If you disagree with this, then you are probably a scumbag Warriors fan, in which case you can get the hell out of here! And Thompson also will still have a prominent role defensively, as he'll be the primary defender on Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving. "So, it's definitely fun to be a part of, and it's just part of the game".
According to the secondary ticket sale and research site TicketIQ, the average "get-in" price-meaning the least expensive seat in the house-is for Golden State's home games is $423.
"I'd like to see the ball go in the basket", he said.
