James' superior all-around skills were on center stage in the 2012 meeting.
The Warriors' haven't been as explosive this year either, with their playoff average going from 119.3 last season to 109.1 this time around. His reward? Yet another showdown with Golden State. The Warriors are at their best when they go with none of the above, using Draymond Green as the centre in a small-ball line-up.
That's certainly what the National Basketball Association and its broadcast partners are hoping as the Goliath State Warriors and Cleveland LeBrons swipe right for a fourth consecutive best-of-seven-night stand.
Roseanne Reacts to Show Cancellation in a Tweet
Three weeks earlier, Roseanne was the toast of ABC's annual presentation of its programming plans to advertisers. There was also the CBS firing of Charlie Sheen from Two and a Half Men during his weird spate of behavior.
Maybe Boston would've ended James' streak of NBA Finals if not the absences of Irving and Gordon Hayward.
"It didn't surprise me", Kerr said during his pregame media briefing. Their head coach is the one who kind of puts it all together, makes it all flow.

Warriors guard Patrick McCaw, who missed the final six regular-season games and first 15 of the postseason with a lumbar spinal contusion, is available, Kerr said. In his eighth straight NBA Finals, he probably needs to produce numbers like that in every game to give the Cavaliers any chance. That's how good James remains at 33, as he proved while averaging 34 points, 9.2 rebounds and 8.8 assists in the Eastern Conference play-offs. Ironically, the Sixers won that game.
Iguodala was evaluated by team medical staff on Tuesday before being ruled out of Thursday's home contest against Cleveland to begin the best-of-7 championship series - their 4th in a row against the Cavaliers.

Amazon to block Aus shoppers from USA website
He said the company 'had to assess the workability of the legislation as a global business with multiple worldwide sites'. The spokesman said customers will continue to have access to Amazon US and other overseas sites on the new global store.
Thursday morning, Tatum was asked for his opinion on which team will prevail in the NBA Finals. Being able to sign two top of the line players in free agency this summer has always been the goal of Lakers bosses Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka, but it will likely take more than just Paul George as a running mate for LeBron to choose the Lakers.
