Kyrie Irving said the fact that the Finals will involve seven All-Stars from this season, the most since the 1983 Finals, sums up the competition that is ahead. "It's destined to be some great basketball and it's worth it to watch," Irving said. "It's great for our league, it's great for the culture and it's great for the game, ultimately. To see all the great players going at it on one court, you know we're just appreciative of all the fans that we have of the game of basketball in the NBA, you just never take that for granted as well because I mean they are tuning in just to watch us put a basketball in the hoop and as simple as that sounds."

Kyrie Irving channeled Phil Collins when previewing the Finals on Monday. "What we all feel, there's definitely a sense of intensity that you can feel," he said. "It's in the air. Just by the way things went. It's natural, so. We all accept it. I especially accept it. I can't wait for the challenge."

North Carolina's Justin Jackson is scheduled to work out for the Knicks on June 13, a league source confirmed. Some in the Knicks organization are intrigued by Jackson, as ESPN reported earlier this month, due to the 6-8 wing's potential as a player who can impact the game on both ends of the floor. Jackson, who has a 6-11 wingspan, is projected as a mid-first round pick in some mock drafts. So the Knicks, who have the eighth selection, may have to trade for an additional pick to select Jackson in June. Members of the organization had discussed the possibility of acquiring an additional first-round pick earlier this month, per sources. Details of any potential trade for an additional pick have yet to emerge. The New York Post first reported Jackson's scheduled workout with the Knicks.
