"I don't have any control over what the storyline's going to be".

James also has had to go through the Boston Celtics, who won an National Basketball Association title in 2008 and dispatched James from the playoffs in 2008 and 2010 before he was able to get by them in 2011 and 2012 after joining the Miami Heat. This is a high-powered team and I've played against some other (stiff competition).

Curry and Durant are surefire Hall of Famers. This version of the Warriors is even scarier than previous ones as Kevin Durant is now playing with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

Brown and LeBron made the Finals together in 2007 and remained a duo until James left Cleveland for the Miami Heat during the summer of 2010.

For the record, James feels quite confident about evening his career Finals record to 4-4 with a win over Golden State.

Does the thought of seeing another season extend all the way until June only to end in a loss deter him?

"Just the joy of being able to compete for a championship, if you add more pressure to it, I don't believe in it", Jame said. "I don't know more about LeBron than what Steve (Kerr) does", he said.

The move is a reversal of ex-President Barack Obama's policy to reduce jail time for low-level drug crimes. That being an era of accountability, where enforcing the law takes precedent over political objectives.

The three-time champion said playing Golden State is "going to be very challenging not only on me mentally, but on our ballclub and on our franchise". You talk about longevity and just being able to play at a high level for a long period of time and I've been fortunate enough to be able to do that, and to be able to take 2 franchises to 4 Finals apiece.

"[LeBron's] been scrutinized from day one, top to bottom, inside-out".

"Win, lose or draw, I've been proud to be a part of the league's biggest stage, and that's The Finals".

For the third straight season we get to watch the two best teams in the National Basketball Association go at it in the Finals and for the first time in history it's the same two teams.

"First of all, I don't get involved in the hype", James said. "Obviously I coached him, so there's maybe a little bit more that I may know on his personal side about him, but in terms of him as a basketball player, everybody has knowledge of what he can do on the floor". Under the microscope, media members will do their darndest to determine what the keys to a Cleveland Cavaliers or Golden State Warriors victory will be. We don't know yet. They enter the Finals with a combined record of 24-1 and two of the best offenses and defenses in the National Basketball Association playoffs.

"One of the things, and we talked about this, is his shooting".
