Who’s been following the NBA Finals lately? I know, I have!
I’ve been an avid NBA fan as far back as I can remember. And the game of basketball has pretty much been my life when I was a kid. I’d join league competitions and pickup games every single day along with my friends. That’s why watching NBA games is one of my favorite forms of relaxation and serves as a great stress reliever for me.
This year’s NBA Finals is particularly more exciting because of a couple of reasons:
- This is the 3rd consecutive season that my team, the Golden State Warriors (Go, Dubs!), and the Cleveland Cavaliers are facing off in the Finals. A first in the NBA!
- The Golden State Warriors have cruised through the Western Conference playoffs, straight to the Finals with absolutely NO LOSS! That’s right. After winning Game 2 of the NBA Finals yesterday, they are already 14-0 in the playoffs. Also, another record in the league! Insane!
And while it seems that the Golden State Warriors are every bit the juggernaut everyone expected them to be after signing NBA superstar and former MVP, Kevin Durant, many fans are still hopeful that the Cavs will bounce back from 0-2 deficit and win the series. While that may seem like a daunting task, it is not impossible. If you remember, during last season’s Finals, Lebron and the Cavs were also in a similar situation against the Warriors. They were down 1-3 in the series and yet they rallied to force a game 7 and ultimately win the championship.
I’m really hoping the Golden State Warriors maintain their winning streak and become the first team ever in the NBA to complete the playoffs undefeated.
