However, let's imagine that Houston beats Golden State... do you think LeBron and company can't handle Harden & Paul in a FINALS MATCHUP? I'm not so sure.

If Houston gets out of the West, and Cleveland gets out of the East, I'd put them at a coin flip. If Golden State comes out of the West, Cleveland has a 0% chance.

LeBron is getting his 4th ring if GS gets injured and gets bounced by Houston. Harden fell apart against LeBron once already in the finals, I'd expect nothing but the same if Houston somehow makes the finals.

Just takes one or two bad shooting games from Houston at home.. once LeBron and the Cavs steal HCA, forget about it. There's no way that two of the biggest chokers in the playoffs lead a finals comeback against a team led by one of the 5 greatest players of all-time. It just isn't happening.
