WILL we see a seven game epic in the NBA Finals series everyone wanted to see?

Let’s hope so.

Only two teams are left standing after the NBA season and playoffs were won and done.

It’s the finals, with the NBA best Golden State Warriors meeting their old foe for the third straight year in the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The remarkable Warriors absolutely steam rolled every one in the Western Conference, winning 67 games in the regular season and then dominating the playoffs with three sweeps through the first three rounds.

No team has ever done that and they will be looking to make that record even prettier when they take home court advantage into their meeting with LeBron James and the Cavs.

Something to remember is the Cavs are the reigning NBA champions after they became the only team in NBA history to come back from 3-1 down and win the NBA Finals.

While they coasted through the regular season, winning 51 games, beast LeBron has emerged in the playoffs and he has been the undisputed best player on the planet.

The Cavs swept through the first two rounds of the playoffs and were a perfect 10-0 before the Boston Celtics – without their pint sized star point guard Isaiah Thomas – pulled off one of the great upsets in NBA history, somehow claiming Game Three of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Of course, normal transmission was resumed and they bashed out the last two games they needed to make it through for the re-match against the Warriors with a 12-1 record.

People are complaining that the league is too boring because two teams have dominated and they might be right – but there is no way these playoffs are going to be boring.

Whether they are close, or if one team blows out the other, you simply cannot deny that this series is going to be epic.

Will the Warriors continue to be record breakers and blow away the Cavs in four games? Will it go to seven and be the marathon we’re all hoping for? Or can LeBron take another step towards His Heirness and claim the title against the Warriors’ super team?

We’ll try to predict what will happen.

Ok, we are very tempted to pick the Warriors 4-0. It just feels like they are so much better than any other team on the planet. With weapons like two time NBA MVP Stephen Curry, the Slim Reaper, Kevin Durant and fellow All Stars Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, they might just possess the most talented quartet ever to step on an NBA floor. From the start of the playoffs, they look like they have a mission of redemption on their hands, after being embarrassed by the Cavs last year. Of course Durant has a mission of his own after crossing from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Warriors. He’s tasted defeat at the hands of LeBron, back in 2012 when James’ Miami Heat beat KD’s Thunder. So there is plenty of redemption at stake. But we simply cannot pick any team that features LeBron James to be swept. The man has been unstoppable in the playoffs and his work has made running mates Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love look like better players than they already are. That is a testament to his wonderful talents and you would have to think they will at least claim one or two games at home in the series. Having said that, the Warriors will still be smarting from last year’s fade out and will have made the necessary adjustments to ensure something like that never happens to them again.
