I’ve been off this website since I don’t really know what I could write that hasn’t already been written. But I’ll check in more often this week, as we get closer to the start of the NBA Finals.
As great as the Warriors are, I can’t see them sweeping the Cavs. LeBron James is simply a tough guy to play against. Any team that has managed to beat a team with LeBron in it deserves a lot of credit. The Warriors did it once two years ago. They may very well do it again.
Obviously, last year’s Finals were of high significance to LeBron and the city of Cleveland. Back in 2010, when LeBron announced he would be heading off to Miami to join the Heat, the announcement was not very well-received over there. After four straight Finals appearances as a member of the Heat, he chose to go back to Cleveland and try to get their city an NBA championship. He did just that last year. Now he wants to do it again.
But I can only imagine that the Warriors will never get over the fact that they could’ve beat the Cavs last season, with a regular season winning record that beat that of the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls. I’m sure they’re going to do everything to win this series and take back the embarrassing loss of last year.
All in all, I see a lot of significance attached to this upcoming Finals series. If the Warriors can somehow win this series, this would prove that they are the most talented Western Conference team the NBA has seen since the early-00’s Los Angeles Lakers. If the Cavs manage to win this, this would seal the deal that LeBron is the best player of our generation and is worthy of comparisons to the great Michael Jordan. Should be a classic series — that’s for sure!
