With no LeBron James, D-Wade, Tim Duncan nor Kevin Durant and a new team in the NBA Finals, NBA fans await the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors with much anticipation.
Injuries plague the Warriors. For now, there is no KD. DeMarcus Cousins a.k.a Boogie who just returned to training, is questionable to return for game 1. If he returns, he may break up the current chemistry of the team though. Then there is past Finals MVP, Andre Iguodala, who has an injured calf. He is still scheduled to play.
Despite the injuries, the Warriors have risen to the occasion to compete in the Finals with the return of the Splash Brothers, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson and a focused Draymond Green. Kevon Looney has also stepped up majorly as a big in the paint. We know their bench is deep too. Can they do the 3-peat?!
Kawhi Leonard leads the Raptors, whose supporting cast have woken up with hunger in their eyes. There have been talks that Kawhi Leonard has the potential to be compared to Michael Jordan already. I agree, he has been starting to look like the GOAT, but how strong is his support team? Lowry aint no Pippen. He hustles though. Danny Green has been a no show, Gasol is an inconsistent weak link and Ibaka’s age is beginning to show. But VanVleet and Lopez are monsters for them. Siakam and Powell are good shooters too. Toronto also has home-court advantage and …well Drake 🤣
Who will win the NBA Finals?
With all fun and jokes aside, Suga gives the experienced Coach Steve Kerr and the Warriors team the slight edge over the Raptors for the win and the 3-peat.
Kawhi Leonard has already won Finals MVP. It’s time for Steph Curry to continue to step up and show up. I believe it would seal his legacy.
Game 1 starts at 8pmET!
