2016 NBA Finals preview + pick

2016 NBA Finals preview + pick

This playoff season is the best in years. Most of the series from the 1st round til now! Had a lot of action and drama as far as storylines go. Now we officially have our two teams in the finals. The Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors are meeting for the Second straight year for the right of holding the Larry O’Brien trophy. The Cavaliers are a different team from a season ago, when they barely mustered 2 wins earlier in last season’s NBA finals. They didn’t have there two impact players in Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love. This year is different because they are healthy and playing well. The Cavaliers led by the king of Cleveland Lebron James who is determined to win another but one for the city of Cleveland. The Cavaliers will need heavy contributions from both J.R. Smith and Tristian Thompson in order to take control of this series. Toronto cause some problems for a little while but could not win in the end.
As for the Golden State Warriors, they are coming off a tremendous series vs. Oklahoma City Thunder who nearly had them trailing 3 games to 1 before giving it away. It was by far there toughest test this postseason. They were down but not out as they become the latest team to comeback from a 3-1 series hole to win it. The Warriors have been great all season winning 73 games (all time single season wins record) in the regular season. Handing teams like the Rockets, Trail Blazers, and Thunder. They got plenty of contributors like Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and oh yeah Stephan Curry NBA MVP 2years running. The benches for both teams is just about even on both teams. Here is my pick: Golden State in 7 games. Sorry Lebron and Cleveland your streak will continue.
