NBA Finals 2015
One never knows whether the game/series is going to be truly good or not. Even the best match-ups have ended in some wild blow-outs and have people walking out of the stadiums (or brushing the Cheetos off their bellies) and shaking their heads. Game 1 for the Cavalier/Warriors series could go that way, but it won’t be for lack of heart. I have been watching a bunch of NBATV over the past couple of days and, and if Kyrie Irving’s injury isn’t too debilitating, they should be able to push the Warriors pretty hard. I don’t like LeBron’s koolaid, but I cannot deny that even more than his play on the court at this point, it is his leadership. You cannot put a value on the kind of thing that he does in the video below. I still think that the atmosphere and leadership for the Golden (State) Warriors hehe is better, but if you are going to go any other route, what LeBron is doing, not unlike Ray Lewis’ role for the Baltimore Ravens, is pretty good stuff.
Having said that I add, be sure to watch Curry, because he is another one of the greatest basketball players to grace the courts. If his career isn’t cut short by injury, we will have been around watching him dig his roots in, just as I was watching Wayne Gretzky before he broke all the records. Curry deserved his MVP this year, even in a league full of MVPs.
P.S. Enjoy the game tomorrow if you can watch it. I will be away from any devices that will allow me to follow it live. Will have to catch the highlights after I get home. ❤
