As I write this, LeBron is in Cleveland looking to sweep the Raptors and move onto yet another Eastern Conference Finals. On the West Coast, the Warriors have a commanding 3-1 lead over the Pelicans and with the series heading back to Oakland, the series looks to be about over.
As we all know, the Warriors and Cavs have been to three straight Finals with the Warriors being up 2 to 1 in that series. For those getting bored with this same matchup it is unfortunate for them because it looks like it will continue on for a fourth year.
LeBron and the Cavs have looked more vulnerable than any other LeBron led team has in quite awhile. They looked to be on the verge of getting eliminated in the first round by the Oladipo led Pacers. With big nights by the king, Cleveland advanced.
Cleveland moved onto Toronto, the 1 seed in the East. Playoff LeBron continued and his huge stat lines and buzzer beaters came along into the second round as well. On the verge of sweeping and looking like they will play the Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals, it seems that Cleveland will cruise into the Finals.
Boston is a great team but without their stars in Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving, they only stand so much of a chance. Plus they don’t have anybody to guard the best player on the floor, LeBron James.
Now with the Warriors. They are one of the greatest teams ever with their four all stars. With people seeing the Pelicans as a threat, Golden State silenced the doubters with dominate performances by KD and the return of Steph Curry.
Though the Pelicans don’t seem to be much of a challenge, they will most likely have to face MVP hopeful, James Harden, and the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference Finals.
The Rockets seem to be the biggest threat to the Warriors this season with star players in Chris Paul, James Harden and having a great surrounding cast.
Even with this great Houston team, the Warriors will most likely be unfazed as they have faced tougher opponents and are still the reigning world champions.
There is still a game and a whole round left until the NBA Finals, but it looks like we already know who will be playing for the Larry O’Brien Trophy. But why complain when the greatest team is playing against the greatest player? To me, it never gets old.
