Kevin Love will play Game 1 of Finals against Warriors

Chris Paul

Love was still in the league's concussion protocol as of Wednesday afternoon when the Cavs arrived at Finals media day, preventing the forward from speaking to reporters, but he did participate in shooting drills with his teammates during the open portion of Cleveland's practice session.

The 2018 NBA Finals are unlikely to make it that far, but this certainly isn't a boring matchup either.

In the end, Houston fell to the defending champion Golden State Warriors in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals Monday evening.

But seriously, maybe one of them just isn't owning up to the truth here. The Cavaliers... that brings us to our next question. Cleveland has been the LeBron show more than ever, so much so that "The Other Cavaliers" earned a skit on "Saturday Night Live" earlier in the postseason.

None of that may matter against the Warriors.

Jeff Green is one of the last two remaining Seattle Supersonic players in the National Basketball Association, with the other ironically being Kevin Durant.

India & Iran drop dollar in oil trade to bypass USA sanctions
India trades with Iran in Euros, which are not under the purview of the US Department of the Treasury. Zarif called the visit to India "fruitful" in a tweet.

His dominance has continued throughout the playoffs, as he has single-handedly kept his team in series and won them games. They will annoy the man as much as they can, and in the process, they'll save Klay Thompson and Green a foul or two.

George Hill, with his length and veteran savvy, may do okay on Stephen Curry.

Sitting on the sidelines and watching his team lose to the Warriors, when he should've been playing in the biggest game of his life, was understandably tough for Paul to take and general manager Daryl Morey explained how he was finding it the hardest of anybody on the team. Iguodala matters - in the 2017 Finals the Warriors were +60 when he was on the court and -26 when he was not. He's one of the best shooters in the game for a reason.

Instead, if LeBron did want to sign with Houston but keep some of the talent that made them such a dominant team this season, he could copy exactly what Paul did to get to Houston, accepting the player option on his contract and forcing a trade to the Rockets, also known as a sign-and-trade. The Warriors beat the Cavs in 2015, before Cleveland stormed back from a 3-1 deficit to take the title in 2016.

This isn't rocket science - the Cavaliers need a high percentage of those shots to fall.

It probably goes without saying that this would be great news for the Cavs. Which means making a lot of threes.

Record Number of Marylanders Traveling Memorial Day Weekend
The sudden uptick in gas prices can be attributed to a variety of factors, leading up to the proverbial ideal storm at the pump . Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer, and Americans will kick off the season by traveling in near-record numbers.

"It will be interesting to see how competitive LeBron James can make this Finals, but any game they get in this Finals would be a huge upset, to me", Van Gundy said, adding that Cleveland would "have to be lights-out from the three-point line to have a chance to win a game".

Remember how concerned the Celtics were with getting back to deal with the Cavaliers' transition game?

I'm going to assume that the Cavs stay with their "big" lineup to kick off the series, even if Kevin Love returns for Game 1. In the Boston series, however, he had 33 points and 11 rebounds in 73 minutes in the Cavs' final two victories.

Can the rest of this team? "Once he gives it up, try not to let him get it back".

"Draymond was on my team, and he was just like, 'Look, you can't do nothing about that".
