Golden State's enormous odds are the highest any team has had in the NBA Finals in 16 years. "I had loved him at Arizona and was hoping that he slid to us with that pick".
Golden State's road to the finals this year hit a rocky stretch during their conference finals against the Houston Rockets. But I don't have my trophies, so I don't know where a lot of that stuff is.
Iguodala is seen as one of the best Warriors defenders against Cavaliers superstar LeBron James. A knee surgery kept him out for most of the regular season and all of the postseason. At media day on Wednesday in advance of the Finals matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Curry was asked about his thoughts on that elusive honor pretty early during his media address. "And then you know we come into the season, and our All-Star point guard that we got from Boston [Isaiah Thomas] wasn't able to play until January".
"Forty-eight minutes, it lasts a long time and there's so many opportunities to get yourself going as a team".
"Anybody who tells you they're surprised by that, they're lying", Smith said.
Cleveland Cavaliers' forward Kevin Love has completed the NBA's program to return from concussion and is available for Thursday night's Game 1 of the NBA Finals against Golden State Warriors, the team announced.

POINT GUARD: Stephen Curry v George Hill. The three-time National Basketball Association champion made 6 of 11 field-goal attempts against Durant, 3 of 6 against Iguodala, and 1 of 4 against Green in two regular-season contests both won by the Warriors. That's always the challenge when you play a great player.
Will the Warriors - ripe with talent and fresh off of beating a team that was literally created to take them down in the conference finals - win their third title in four years, cementing themselves as a dynasty? But we've got to focus on Game 2 now.
"He has very, very quick hands", James said. It is possible to check more than one category on the list. Kevon Looney started again in place of Iguodala, but coach Steve Kerr went to McGee after the break.
