NBA Finals Prediction

If the Conference Finals are any indicator for how the NBA Finals will play out, then we’re in for some fantastic basketball. The best part is that we get a rematch of the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Unlike last year, the Cavs are healthy, which means we have an instant classic on our hands. The Warriors had to do the (almost) impossible in coming back from a 3-1 series deficit to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder. With Klay Thompson’s heroics in Game 6, Stephen Curry’s heroics in Game 7, and a good amount of a choke from the Thunder as well, the league’s historic team kept their season alive. Until this point, Golden State had looked pretty dominant. But in this series, Oklahoma City was the better team for a very long time, and suddenly, the Warriors looked vulnerable, even on their own home court. Meanwhile, the Cavs struggled with the Toronto Raptors for all of two tough games in Toronto and then turned on the pressure before blowing them out of the water. Now in his sixth-straight NBA Finals, LeBron James is a man on a mission, and that mission is to win another title so all his naysayers finally shut up. He’ll have some help this time, as Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love are fully healthy and playing great basketball. It seems that their Big 3 dynamic is firing on all cylinders at just the right time. Then again, the Raptors will not provide the test that any elite Western Conference team will. A few months ago, I’d have had an easy prediction for you, and that’d be that the Warriors would win in a landslide, especially when you consider their regular season record. But fast forward to this point, and I can’t make any guarantees. We know what Golden State is capable of, but they are coming back from a physical series with limited rest and facing a Cleveland team that has had a good amount of rest for its aging stars. LeBron took two games in this series on his own last year. Adding two more stars to the mix should help his cause, especially when you look at the basketball that they are playing right now. I think this is the year James finally gets over the hurdle, but the only thing I know for sure is that this series should be an instant classic. Cavs in 7
