The time is nigh! The Cleveland Cavaliers are set to face off against the Golden State Warriors at this year's NBA Finals. And even though we all could have guessed it would be these two teams, considering it's their fourth straight matchup, it's exciting nonetheless.
So lets get down to business and call this what it is, Lebron James vs. Steph Curry, or at least that's what everyone is talking about. I find it pretty offensive to all the other players on the teams, but that's what it's become. So for the sake of the discussion, I'd go Curry all the way. Even though he'll never admit it, I think that going to the finals 4 consecutive years in a row and never holding the MVP award is getting to him. I honestly don't think he even cares about winning the Finals. He's going to be giving it 110% specifically to finally get that award.
On the other hand we have Lebron James. Now I don't think he's going to completely crumble, but I do think he's going to show everyone that he's mortal. The Cavs are undeniably the underdog, with OddsShark giving them 27-4 for the series. I have to say that I'd absolutely love to see everyone hop off the "Lebron is GOD and is the best NBA player of all time" train. So to see him crumble to the Warriors in the finals is the first step to making that happen. And remember, Lebron apparently makes up the entire Cavs team. So if they lose, Lebron James is entirely to blame, right? Nope.... If they lose, everyone will look to the rest of the team for blaming.
So what are your thoughts? If we keep this on the topic of Lebron vs. Curry, who do you think will be champion this year?
Game 1 starts 5/31 at 9 p.m. Here's the full schedule
