I have been saying for weeks now that I didn't want to see this matchup. Now I feel like I want to walk that back. Here's why.
I actually watched more than half the playoff games this year, on both sides. And I was trying to think of a more compelling or entertaining matchup for the finals. For a while I really wanted the Rockets to make it. But the moment Chris Paul got hurt, that was no longer an option, as they just aren't the same team without him. And no other team in the West was in my mind capable of handling the Cavs or probably even the Celtics. So I'm good with the Warriors making it. Sure, they got lucky. But when the Rockets miss 29/30 3's in the final game, you basically deserve to lose the series.
Then for the East, I wanted the 76ers to win. Until I saw them get walked over by the Celtics pretty easily. Then it was the Celtics for the win! lol. Until.. Lebron put on maybe the most impressive and dominant performance I have ever seen in the NBA playoffs, period.
So now I am fully on board for this match up. The 2 best teams made it, fair and square. And I think after watching Lebron do what he did this year, I have to say, he is the best NBA player in history.
As for Curry vs Lebron, as for who is better or who will be more MVP-worthy, I think that already goes to Lebron, just for getting his team into the finals. It really was that impressive. Curry has Kevin Durant and Clay Thompson. Both of those guys routinely take over games and help out. Lebron doesn't have anyone like that. He basically has to shoulder 90% of the load himself.
It would be a miracle if the Cavs won this series, seeing as how outnumbered they are talent wise. But if they do, Lebron will probably go down in history as the best all time, with this series being the shining example. And I think that could happen.
What's more likely though is Curry, Durant and Thompson and others will avalanche them with too much offense, and win in 5-6 games.
Either way, I'm down to watch. I hope its not a steam roll by the Warriors.
