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 lockedoncavs@gmail.com 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 christopherwmanning@gmail.com and we'll talk again tomorrow.
