Not only would such a feat be a first in the 70-plus seasons of NBA history, but it solidify the Cavs and Warriors among all-time Finals rivals.
After practice on Wednesday, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue compared a potential third straight meeting to the classic Celtics-Lakers matchups during the League’s more formative years.
“Is it a problem? I don’t think so.
“I think a lot of people wanted to see Boston and the Lakers back in the day. I think nowadays, a lot of people want to see Golden State-Cavs.
“And it’s not a problem. Right now, it’s two of the teams playing some of the best basketball right now.”
