D'Antoni said he told Durant his team has to go beat the Cleveland Cavaliers, while Durant believed he heard the Houston Rockets coach say the Rockets would have defeated the Golden State Warriors if Houston had Chris Paul.

The Rockets were understandably emotional after losing just one game shy of the NBA Finals, with Trevor Ariza, Clint Capela and P.J. Tucker in tears. May 29 11:00 PM Brian and Michael reflect on missed opportunities in Game 7 and what could have been in the NBA Finals for the Celtics. "They have (James), the best player in the world".

The teams have changed mightily over the last four seasons. Golden State opens its latest rematch against the Cavaliers as a -1,000 favorite, according to ESPN, which makes for the most lopsided Finals matchup in at least 16 years.

Record-wise, this is the worst version of the Warriors since they started their run back in 2013-14.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Golden State Warriors will be heading into the NBA Finals to face the Cleveland Cavaliers following an intense Western Conference Finals series. Houston seeks layups and 3-point shots.

Injured forward Andre Iguodala continues to search for ways to return from a leg injury in time for the NBA Finals. The Rockets fell apart in the second half again after doing so in Game 6. "I think no matter who came out of the West and who came out of the East, the Western Conference victor would have been the prohibitive favorite, for many different reasons", he said. The 2015 Finals MVP is Golden State's best defender and would be the best option to limit LeBron, but without him Steve Kerr might be forced to rotate Jordan Bell, Kevon Looney, Shaun Livingston and Nick Young, as he did in the Western Conference Finals. But at the same time, Golden State hasn't played that well lately, and LeBron James suits up for the other team, making that +650 sound like some pretty good value. "I think it's awesome for the league to have tremendous star power on the biggest, brightest stage". May 29 02:17 PM The Ringer's John Gonzalez is joined by Shea Serrano to react to LeBron James's Cleveland Cavaliers advancing past the Boston Celtics to the Finals (2:33). Even if that doesn't happen, enjoy the best player of his generation, especially with so much uncertainty hanging over his future.
