As a matter of fact, the former NBA head coach and current ESPN broadcaster believes the Warriors will win the series in just 5 games.
Just talked to Jeff Van Gundy for tomorrow's column. He expects Warriors to win in 5. "I just think they're at a different level."

Via the San Francisco Chronicle:
“I don’t think the Warriors will be challenged.
“I think they’ll be in the same situation as last year, up 3-1 coming home. In my time in the NBA, this is the biggest talent differential between the best team and the second best team.
“No disrespect to Cleveland, but I just think the Warriors are at a different level.”
Comments like Van Gundy’s don’t seem to be fazing LeBron James at all, though.
Over the weekend, James said he feels “very good” about the Cavs’ chances.
