The scorching-hot limelight can't leave

It seems pretty obvious
"Yeah, unfortunately, the dynamics are pretty tricky," Kerr said Saturday. "I'll just say that I've established my penchant for lying. So however I answer right now, you shouldn't believe me anyway."
It wouldn't be fibbing if Kerr said he wanted more from Warriors All-Star
If Thompson and Curry string something together in the same game, Cleveland would be more than hard-pressed to match them on offense. Not that Curry is stressing out.
"[Thompson] creates shots for others just by his presence on the floor. And that's what makes our team great, is you have threats everywhere and you have to choose your poison," Curry said.
After malfunctioning badly at home in Game 4, Cleveland got the maximum amount of rest in this round, three days to lick wounds and pine for damaged All-Stars
James has said he's fine despite needing stitches from his head-on collision with a TV camera. He'll surely improve upon his 20-point, seven-for-22 effort in Game 4, won't he?
The extra day of rest was like a "lifeline," he said, trying to size up his need to take a lot of shots to score a lot of points.
"Well, I'm in a spot where I have to be very productive, and that's just the spot I've always been in," he said. "For me, it's a lose-lose when it comes to, OK, well, in the first three games I score 40, but I shoot a lot of shots. Last game I scored 20, I don't shoot as many shots, and we lose. So it's like, what do you want?
"All I care about is how I can produce for our team."
The bigger questions orbit James' teammates.
Smith seems the most down on himself and, at the same time, apt to punch out of his slump at any time. He's the one who scored 28 points against Atlanta in the Eastern Conference finals, making eight of 12 three-point attempts.
"The best part about it, I can't play no worse," Smith said Saturday, cognizant he was shooting poorly in the series (29.8% to be exact).
The Warriors own the momentum and are 47-4 at Oracle Arena. A victory Sunday puts them in very good shape. And that's no lie.
