That's your NBA, kids.

That's the combined record of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors as they hop, skip and jump through the NBA playoffs.

They seem destined to meet in a third consecutive NBA Finals.

Can we get some older story lines here?

Yeah, it's the rubber match (they've split the first two Finals) and there's a fresh slant: Kevin Durant.

But I'm already tired of the stories. They're the same ones since before the season.

1. Is LeBron better than Jordan?

2. Will Durant finally win his championship?

3. Will Durant eventually go back to Oklahoma City, like LeBron went back to Cleveland?

4. Will Thunder fans welcome him back?

See answers at bottom.

But the NBA amazes me. It's the same story lines every year and somehow it generates interest.

Guess these guys are that good.

Maybe someone gets in the way before the Finals.

The Celtics? The Spurs? The Rockets?

Feel free to interrupt the normally scheduled program, just for the fun of it.

I know I'll snap out of this, when Durant is in the Finals, or LeBron is on his Finals game.

I was just checking, and I'm pretty sure that if the Cavs and Warriors reunite, it will be the first time in NBA history - even with all those Lakers-Celtics battles - that the same teams have met for the championship in three consecutive years. Hard to believe. Expect nothing less.

Who's going to stop them?

Wake me for the Finals.

Answers: 1. No; 2. Yes; 3. Yes; 4. "We love you, KD!"
