But allow me to play devil's advocate for a moment, because while - when you boil it down - the Warriors are a far superior team, there are some factors in this series that could make these Finals interesting. The Warriors won their second title in three years by beating the Cavs 4-1. First, they talk through the end of Warriors-Rockets, including the performance of Houston's role players, Golden State's mental toughness, Golden State's weird first half, Mike D'Antoni's cruel fate, asterisks in the wake of the CP3 injury, and the state of Playoff Harden discourse.
Slower players will get victimized by Stephen Curry if they switch on pick-and-rolls, as the Rockets' Ryan Anderson was while finishing minus-12 in just eight minutes Monday during Golden State's win in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals. Do the math and this year's series marks the first "fourmatch".

Cavaliers All-Star forward Kevin Love remains in concussion protocol and his status for Game 1 of the NBA Finals is still unclear. It wasn't anywhere near the dominating regular seasons that we've seen from the four-time defending conference champs during the Steve Kerr era. Cleveland defeated Golden State in Game 3 of the 2016 Finals when Love was sidelined. It's a contradiction of styles that played out to a lesser extent in the Eastern Conference finals between the Cavaliers and Celtics. This postseason, the Cavs have worn black 11 out of 18 games, winning 9 of them.
The Rockets' game seven horror show was highlighted by a record 27 straight misses by the Rockets during an epic cold streak from 3-point range, that ultimately gifted the series to Golden State.
The Cavs lost Game 1 of their series with the Pacers and Game 1 with the Celtics this year and overcame those deficits in what LeBron James deemed "feel-out games".

Conte's decision to step aside leaves Italy in a political crisis almost three months after March's inconclusive general election. But the move is a temporary measure and the PM-in-waiting says he will hold new elections by early next year.
Hard it is. In 2015, after 69 seasons, the Warriors won their first National Basketball Association championship beating Cleveland. At the time, Cavs vs. Warriors I had the highest average viewership of any Finals matchup since Michael Jordan's past year in Chicago. While unwinding long after the win with Morton's The Steakhouse cuisine and a cold one, Kerr responded to those words by saying, "We would have won the series in five if Iggy played".
It will take a Herculean effort to beat the Warriors.
No one knows what LeBron will do this summer, but he will seriously consider all of his options.
