The West and East NBA superpowers are set to meet for a fourth straight time for the league championship. Redundant? Yes! But very much more earned than the previous. Both teams needed Game 7 road wins against teams missing their stars to get to the championship series.

Cavs Vs Warriors Betting Analysis
LeBron James IS the greatest player of all time.
The Warriors ARE the greatest team of all time.
On Thursday Game 1 of their best-of-seven series tips off from Oakland, California.
The Warriors were destined to be in the 2018 NBA Championship from the second they won it last season. Golden State was always supposed to make it this far. Talk of repeating a 67-win regular season, 16-1 playoff record, and a NBA Championship was instant. That hubris led to a 58-win season and a Western Conference finals Game 7 scare.
LeBron James has been on a one-man mission all season. In the playoffs he has disposed of more talented teams with heartlessness fit for Westeros. If this series is to be his last season in Cleveland, it will be otherworldly.
