2017 NBA Finals Expert Betting Picks, and Odds: King James Enjoying Jordan Comparison.

Written and authored by National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Al Presto. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball news and notes.

NBA Predictions are winning at a winning rate and will continue through the 2017 NBA Finals Game in June. Thursday. June 1st, 2017 is a day Basketball Fans around the globe have circled.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will begin their quest for a repeat vs. The Golden State Warriors.

Both teams ran through the 2017 NBA Postseason with ease and will face off in the NBA Finals for the third consecutive season.

No player in recent history has the pressure of expectations as Cleveland Forward LeBron James.

It was just about eight years ago when the “KING” made his infamous decision to join the Miami Heat; The results were astounding as the Head won two NBA titles in four seasons.

However James left a bad taste in the mouth of fans in the nation, and nowhere was he more hated than Northeast Ohio. James, a native of Akron, Ohio was supposed to be the savior of the franchise.

He still holds the title; he just took a detour to come back to the “BUCKEYE STATE” and deliver.

James is now playing in his seventh consecutive NBA Finals, and there is a lot on the line.

 

In 2016 The City of Cleveland got their long awaited professional sports Championship as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Golden State Warriors in the NBA finals.

Fans were seen dancing in the streets of Cleveland, and the Indians of Major League Baseball almost gave the city another Championship but fell short.

James is finally living up to the lofty expectations surrounding him as a high schooler at St. Vincent-St. Mary’s in Akron.

As a member of the Miami Heat James won but felt out of place. The kid is loyal to Northeast Ohio, and this sports handicapper knew he was going back to the place he loved so much.

LeBron James is a once in a lifetime player, who has the physical stature of a Superhero and the ball skills of a point guard.

None of it will matter if the Cavaliers don’t repeat as NBA Champions.

The best player in the world can silence all of the critics and will own the City of Cleveland aka “THE MISTAKE BY THE LAKE.”

James and the Cavaliers will travel to the Bay Area where the Golden State Warriors will be waiting with another weapon in their arsenal.

The Golden State Warriors added star Kevin Durant to the roster, and it showed how good of a move it was in the playoffs.

The Warriors got a scare from the San Antonio Spurs, but the loss of Kawhi Leonard for the Spurs made it almost impossible to pull off the upset.

Another twist to the 2017 NBA Finals is that former Cleveland coach Mike Brown will be on the bench substituting for Steve Kerr.

What team has the advantage is still up in the air, Brown who once understood how to contain James but the King has grown mentally.

Durant, known as a selfish player must be how poise and get teammates involved.

There is also a lot on the line for the former Oklahoma City Thunder star.

Bovada.Lv has Golden State at -275 to win the 2017 NBA Finals.

Cleveland took a twenty-two point lead into the half, before calling off the dogs in the second half.

Forwards LeBron James and Kevin Love combined for seventy of the team’s 117-points. Cleveland is a covering machine and friendly to Point Spread Bettors going 6-2-1 nine games in the 2017 NBA Playoffs.

Center Tristan Thompson also put his stamp on the match with twenty points, and as usual, the team fed off of his energy.

Head Coach Tyronn Lue must keep his team in focus and not become lethargic in game two of the series.

The key to a Cavaliers victory in game two play with the same kind of intensity on both offense and defense.

The team is so talented they have a tendency to lose focus and play down to the competition.

The Boston Celtics seemed out of rhythm in game one of the Eastern Conference Finals in front of the home crowd.

All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas had trouble with the length of Cleveland at both ends of the court.

Boston shot poorly from the three-point line in the first half and had trouble rebounding on offense and defense.

Head Coach Brad Stevens and his staff must devise a scheme to combat the multi-talented Cavaliers.

Kelly Olynyk, who came off of the bench to become the hero in game seven against Washington had little success against Cleveland.

Seldom used Gerald Green will probably get more playing time the remainder of the series, he has intangibles to at least compete.
