Daily Loud Links: Game 7 NBA Finals Preview Edition

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

After opening 0-2 and being dismissed as sweep fodder, Cleveland has overcome to set the scene for a most unlikely NBA Finals game 7. This winner-take-all, season-concluding clash begins tonight at 8 PM ET. As the basketball world anticipates an apropos climax to a record-setting campaign, LeBron, Steph and the 73-9 Warriors have one shot to solidify personal and collective legacies.
