This year marks the third installment of the trilogy between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors. Every decade, the NBA teases us with a rivalry for the ages. In the 1980’s it was Lakers/Celtics while in the 1990’s it was Bulls/Jazz. With the Cavs and Warriors meeting for the third time to break a 1-1 tie, this is shaping up to be a great rivalry. Here are some reasons why it’s a fun series to watch:
7 of The Last 8 MVPs are Present
In the past 8 years, LeBron James became the MVP four times, Stephen Curry won it twice and Kevin Durant won the award once. All of them will be on the floor when the NBA Finals tip off in Oakland. There’s no doubt this will be one of the most star-studded NBA Finals in recent memory.
There are no excuses, when the Warriors beat the Cavaliers in the first encounter, Kyrie Irving was injured. When the Cavaliers came back from a 3-1 deficit to beat the Warriors last year, Draymond Green got suspended for Game 5. This year, there’ll be no excuses as both teams will showcase their complete lineup. Warriors Owner Joe Lacob even stated he prefers his Warriors facing the Cavaliers over another team because they have unfinished business. He may be right.
Draymond Green’s Guarantee. Last year, Draymond Green’s team became the first team in NBA Finals history to lose a 3-1 series lead. This year, Green said in a video that he promises his team will annihilate the Cavaliers when they meet again in the Finals. We’ll see how he lives up to his guarantee. It’s not going to be easy against one of the game’s best playoff performers in LeBron James.
Aside from entertainment there are other reason watching the 2017 NBA Finals, you’d want to side with one team. Once you’ve decided which team to cheer on, it would be wise to make free bets online. You’ll generate more excitement when you put your hard-earned cash on the line. Since this is basketball, you have a 50-50 chance no matter who you bet on.
