The NBA Finals Begin Tonight! Who will Win?!

20190528_201439

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?

Steve Kerr and Pop out for dinner before the 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!

Stay tuned to Suga Lifestyle for your NBA Finals updates! I love this game!

QB Aaron Rodgers gives 49ers a cold blooded comeback in Monday Night Football!

20181016_084357

Last night was a thrilling game between the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers, highlighted by a clutch performance from Packers’ QB Aaron Rodgers. Packers handed the 49ers their 4th straight defeat, picking up a 33-30 win last night in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

The 49ers started out with 10-0 lead and each time they pushed ahead, Packers’ QB Aaron Rodgers made a play to bring the Packers back to either level the score or push them ahead. The play that stung the most though, was when Rodgers threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams to help tie the game at 30 with 1:55 remaining. Then he drove the Packers down the field for kicker, Mason Crosby’s game-winning 27-yard field goal as time expired.

Note that Rodgers’ movement was limited with an injured knee and there has been a constant cry for a better coach for the Packers. After all, Rodger’s can’t save them all the time.

As usual, well done Rodgers. Looking forward to more this season!

Who will win this year?

The Lakers will always have a chance with their new teammate LeBron James. With a healthy Kyrie Irving, so do the Boston Celtics. But, barring any injuries and once DeMarcus Cousins returns from injury, KD (Kevin Durant) will be unstoppable and it should be Warriors all the way!

The West takes NBA All-Star Game!

The West beat the East last night in the NBA All-Star Game 192-182. Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans passed Wilt Chamberlain’s record by scoring 52, the most points in an All-Star Game.

The other highlight for Suga was the alley-oop from KD to Russ early in the game after their bad break up. Their ongoing squabbles and avoidance of each other has been the talk for a while now and this was the first sign of them putting their feelings aside as they were forced to be teammates in the All-star game

Watch “KD Lobs to Westbrook, West’s Bench celebrates” on YouTube here:

Westbrook was visibly competitive and serious throughout the game. The commentators had to say it seemed like a Playoff game to him.

That alley-oop dunk did not mend the split with him and KD based on his post-game interview though as he played with the reporters.

Poor Russ. Deeply wounded.

In other news, it was announced last night that DeMarcus Cousins has been traded to the New Orleans Pelicans to join Anthony Davis in exchange for Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Langston Gallaway and a furture 1st and 2nd round pick!
