Everyone just get out of the Golden State Warriors’ way. After coming back from a 3-1 series deficit against the Oklahoma City Thunder, we are now watching the team of destiny prepare for its final challenge. The Cleveland Cavaliers? They’re just happy to be here.
This seems to be the narrative surrounding the upcoming NBA Finals. As great as the Cavs have been throughout this postseason, Golden State is just too good. Cleveland may snatch a win or two, making things interesting like last year, but this is the 73-9 Warriors we’re talking about.
Top it all off with how lopsided the regular season series between these two teams was, and you can certainly understand why the Cavs are getting a heavy amount of doubt cast their way. The majority of fans and pundits seem to believe this Finals will be another chapter in the long-suffering sports history of Cleveland.
Personally, I’m not sold on that.
