FINALS PREVIEW
Cleveland plays San Antonio in the NBA Finals which begins on Thursday night. The Cavs won the season series 2-0, limiting the Spurs to 79.5 points per game. The Cavaliers are playing for their first title, and the first by any Cleveland pro sports franchise since 1964. The Spurs, perhaps one of the NBA's most respected franchises, are trying for their fourth ring since 1999.

CHANGES COMING?
The Detroit Pistons seem to be slipping from great to good, leading to questions about a nucleus that has been kept together since winning a title in 2004. Detroit dropped out of the playoffs on the road in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals for the second straight year after consecutive trips to the NBA finals. Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars was unhappy about the way the season unraveled in the playoffs, and he's an executive with a history of making bold moves.

SPEAKING
``This is the first step to greatness. It feels like a fantasy.'' - Cleveland's LeBron James after Saturday's 98-82 win over Detroit. The Cavaliers advanced to the NBA finals for the first time in its 37-year history.
