Fear the Links: Cavs-Warriors edition

New, comment

Get ready for a Finals rematch with this special set of links.

NBA: Finals-Cleveland Cavaliers at Golden State Warriors Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

With the Cavaliers and Warriors finally set to play for the first time this season, Fear the Links returns.

First up, The Step Back’s Scott Rafferty wrote about how Kevin Durant and Steph Curry are torching opposing defenses without even touching the ball. How the Cavs defend Golden State is going to be incredibly interesting to watch.

At Bleacher Report, Erik Malinowski wrote about how Golden State has rebuilt their defense without Andrew Bogut and kept it elite in the process. Just so you’re aware, the Warriors are second in both offensive and defensive rating.

At ESPN, Chris Haynes has a piece up about how Klay Thompson doesn’t think his Finals jabs at LeBron fueled the Cavs in any way. My response:

At CBS Sports, James Herbert wrote about how the Warriors’ having sacrifice for Durant is a matter of perspective and why we shouldn’t question how this team is fitting together.

At NBC, there’s a quick blog up about how Draymond Green freaked out passengers on a plane while he watched the birth of his child on FaceTime. Yes, really.

Lastly, the New York Times has a great profile of Steve Kerr up that will make you appreciate him even if you’re aren’t a fan of the team he coaches.
