NBA Finals Preview

2015 has seemed to be the year for big sports match-ups: Seattle Seahawks vs. New England Patriots (NFL), Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao (Boxing), and now Golden State Warriors vs. Cleveland Cavaliers (NBA). This is a battle of the best teams when it comes to the NBA. LeBron James and Steph Curry have both, respectively, stepped up for their teams in an eye-opening fashion.

I recently participated in a debate over the question: “Who has been more impressive during this year’s NBA playoffs? Steph Curry or LeBron James?” This is a very tough one, but I answered in favor of LeBron (I’m on the left):

I’ve taken a rough survey throughout my encounters with NBA fans via Twitter and passersby in Dallas and Fort Worth. So far, the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth are mainly in favor of the Cavaliers (8 for Cleveland; 2 for GS)…while TwoOneFour Manuscript’s Twitter feed is primarily in favor of Golden State (12 for GS; 5 for Cleveland). I’m not a big fan of either team; however, I would choose the Cleveland Cavaliers based on how much they’ve beat the odds over this season.

My prediction: Cleveland in 6 games. It is expected that the combo of Curry/Thompson and LeBron James will score points. Therefore, this series will come down to the strength of both team’s benches. Golden State and Cleveland have a nice group of backups. This match-up should be a fight to the finish.
