fought all year, the chemistry we have, that got us through that little rough patch. well, will andre iguodala play in game one? who knows? bone bruise still causing him pain in his leg especially when he tries to jump. iguodala's the best defender against lebron james. if he can't go that is a problem for steve kerr. problem for ty lue and the cavs. the available of kevin love in concussion protocol after knocking heads with jayson tate nyum game 6 versus boston. love has had concussion issues before. he is iffy for game one. the giants are having a hard time finding five healthy
