Warriors’ Andre Iguodala out for Game 1 of NBA Finals against Cavs

As for the NBA Finals, Iguodala had become the primary defender on Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James in the previous three matchups.

"I'm not going to say (the Cavaliers have) zero percent chance", said Jackson, who got to the NBA Finals as a player with IN in 2000 and will be calling his 10th Finals. So if they've been fooling around until the Finals get here, well, they're here. The narrative that the Warriors were still the heavy favorites got a huge boost in popularity after Game 1.

Klay Thompson sat on the floor in the middle of his teammates and pointed to his "2018 NBA FINALS" hat during a locker-room photo. And LeBron James was asked to address the critics who are exhausted of Cavs-Warriors.

Trump wrote that Iger never called him to apologize for "the disgusting statements" that have been said about him on ABC. Sanders said Trump was calling out Iger's and ABC's "bias", adding that "no one is defending what [Barr] said".

Houston has been one of the leading destinations to acquire LeBron's services this upcoming summer, and with close friend Paul on the roster, that could be the deciding factor between James playing for Houston next season, or somewhere else. Kevin Love was shown to be the only other consistent contributor for Cleveland with 17 points and eight rebounds per game.

Over the summer and before the season started, there was a lot of skepticism surrounding how the two ball-dominant, alpha dogs would play alongside one another. Now that they're going against Steph Curry and his loaded Golden State Warriors in the finals yet again, Bron is dreading the task. Golden State should still have too much for Cleveland even without Igoudala, but his absence could make life marginally easier for the Cavs' offense. "They have (James), the best player in the world". Cleveland managed to extend the series to a Game 7 only 12 percent of the time.
