We're getting the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals once again. This is the fourth season in a row that the two teams have met at the end of the playoffs.

Is anyone getting tired of this? The Golden State Warriors' owner is, apparently.

Warriors' owner Joe Lacob obviously isn't tired of seeing his team in the NBA Finals, but he is a little tired of seeing Cleveland.

"Sort of tired of Cleveland, to be honest," Lacob told Anthony Slater. "But having said that, LeBron James is an immense challenge, an incredible player. It'll be fun."

Here are his full comments:

OK then.

The Warriors enter the NBA Finals as a massive favorite. Golden State opened as a -1,000 favorite to win the best-of-seven series, meaning you'd need to bet $100 to win $10.

The NBA Finals are set to start on Thursday night. Game 1 will tip off at 9 p.m. E.T. on ABC.
