The Hows, Whens, and Wheres of the NBA Finals

NBA Finals on DISH

The time is here, and the opportunity is now for the final two teams reaching for NBA glory. These two teams have met in every NBA playoff final since 2015. The Western Conference representatives, the Golden State Warriors are led by prolific shooter Steph Curry, and the Eastern Conference Champions, the Cleveland Cavaliers, are led by match up nightmare and hotly debated G.O.A.T. Lebron James. As heavy favorites, Golden State has been chosen by many analysts to win its 3rd NBA championship in 4 years. Even with the odds stacked against them, no one can count out the Cavaliers as long as Lebron is in the starting lineup. He has proven numerous times during this year’s playoffs that he has the rare ability as a player to put the team on his back and will them to victory. Only time will tell who will be victorious. Will it be the favorites in Golden State winning back-to back championships? Or will the Cavs pull off one of the biggest upsets in recent memory and win King James one more ring in Cleveland? With free agency coming up next summer, this could be his last chance in a Cavaliers uniform.
