Fear the Newsletter: Who's ready for the Finals?

That and more in today’s newsletter.

NBA: Golden State Warriors at Cleveland Cavaliers Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Here's today's Fear the Newsletter, where we will always try to set you up like Kyrie passing to LeBron off the glass.

TALK TO ME: The Cavs were off yesterday a day after advancing to the Finals, but will have media availability today for the first time pre-Finals.

LEGEND HAS IT: The Cavs are now in full-on prep mode for the Finals. Which, in case you missed it, start Thursday in Oakland.

ALL DUE RESPECT: The Warriors are in the same boat as the Cavs. There biggest question at the moment is who will be on the bench: Mike Brown or Steve Kerr.

JOB WELL DONE: Three things we learned from Cavs-Celtics. LeBron says he passed MJ by "being me." LeBron DiMaggio.

Also: Subscribe to the Locked on Cavaliers podcast. Today's show looks at Game 5 and LeBron's scoring record. And submit questions for Monday's mailbag show to or on r/clevelandcavs.

CROWN: GSOM's Bram Kincheloe on Cavs-Dubs III. ESPN's Mechelle Voepel profiles Diana Taurasi. The WSJ's Ben Cohen on the forgotten basketball pioneer that made Steph Curry possible. VICE's Patrick Sauer on Dr. J and Larry Bird creating a video game empire. The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor on the Celtics and Spurs reaching their peaks this season.

That's it for today. Drop any questions or concerns to and we'll talk again tomorrow.
