Yesterday, the Golden State Warriors were victors over the Houston Rockets, securing a back and forth seven-game series. Just the day before, the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Celtics in another 7 game series, 87-79. After two thrilling conference final match-ups and an exciting regular season, the result of the season is the same as the last three years: A Cavs-Warriors final match-up.

Lebron James has had one of the best postseasons in NBA history. In his 14th season, Lebron has had his best playoff stats, averaging 34-9-9 and carrying a depleted Cavs team to the NBA Finals. James is appearing in his 8th straight Finals, a record that no player outside of the ’60s Celtics has achieved.

But the task of beating the star-powered Warriors seems impossible. The Warriors looked beatable for once against the Rockets, and very prone to losing a playoff series. But with their four all-stars, it would be a huge surprise if the Cavs walked away with the trophy.

However, Lebron has taught us before: never count him out. With conversations emerging comparing Lebron to Michael Jordan, Lebron should be as determined as ever. Kevin Love will be returning, which gives the Cavs a decent second star. In order to win the series, George Hill, J.R. Smith, and Kyle Korver are all going to have to drain threes and play some of their best basketball.

Game 1 of the NBA Finals is scheduled for Thursday at Golden State on ABC. Tip-off is at 8 p.m. (CST).
