Since the "three-match" in last year's NBA Finals, the Cavaliers traded All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving, coach Ty Lue missed several weeks to deal with health issues, Kevin Love dealt with numerous injuries and is currently in the league's concussion protocol, and overhauled their roster halfway through the regular season.

Despite the roller coaster season, the Cavaliers have shown resiliency and reached the NBA Finals again. This year is James' eighth consecutive NBA Finals appearance.
