The Finals We All Wanted

Sure, if you had a team in this year’s NBA Playoffs you wanted them in the Finals.  But once they were eliminated, this matchup became the thing that warmed your basketball heart. Where to begin?

Well let’s start with the rematch factor. We had an amazing six-game series last year when LeBron basically played the Warriors by himself. This time we get to see if the full Cleveland team can do better.

Add in the 73 wins factor. It looked like the Warriors might flush that season down the drain in the Conference Finals, but they showed grit and heart and overcame a very good Thunder team in 7 games.

Don’t forget the stars. Curry and LeBron are obviously the headliners, but Klay Thompson has emerged as one of the best guards in the game. Kylie Irving and Kevin Love are really good too.

Add it all up and this should be an epic series. Is it too much to ask that it comes down to Game 7, Warriors down by 2, Curry with the ball and time running out?

    can he be just over half court as time winds down?

    In case they guard Curry to tightly, maybe I could get called up…

    Nicely done. Do you still play regularly?

    I wish, just recently started shooting around with my sons, once a week. In sports I play, I have a knack for picking them back up after long layoffs (even years) and not missing a beat. Its weird and bothers some of my buddies over the years.

    Yeah, just high school.

    Just two home games so far, always fun to see how people react when the home team wins both or if the visiting team gets one. Cleveland looked bad but they may come out at home in game 3 and play great. you are supposed to win at home, that is how the schedule is derived. I do think GS wins in 5 now but my predictions rarely come true.

      Totally agree. Look at the Stanley Cup for example. Momentum was all Pittsburgh after winning the first two at home now San Jose looks good after pulling it out in OT. That will be a good game tonight.

    despite the blowout win last night I believe GS will win game 4 setting up the home clincher

      At this point I would be happy with a good game. The biggest shock to me is that the first three games have been hardly competitive.

    That is the NBA, no consistent post game for anyone, jump shooters are either hot or cold
