The NBA Finals are upon us and for the fourth-straight year the Warriors are matched up against LeBron and the Cavaliers. Charlie doesn't expect the Cavs to pull off the upset, but when you have LeBron James, there's always a chance.

Houston should definitely be looking to bring back Chris Paul this offseason, but not if it requires paying him a full-length max contract. A 5-year deal for a 33-year-old player is not something the Rockets should commit to, if they're smart. And we all know Daryl Morey is smart.
