It seems rather fitting to be writing this before the Cavaliers and Warriors face off in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. The Warriors, as dominant as they are, are likely to complete the sweep and win the championship in the next couple of hours. They just have too much firepower for LeBron and gang to handle.
Those who read this blog know that I’m capable of writing about random stuff. Existential crisis one week, a movie review in another, and fitness systems in yet another. I am just going to jot down some thoughts lurking in my head now.
- It does not matter if LeBron fails to win the title this season. His eligibility for number 1 or number 2 all-time is still open, so long as he finishes out his career by winning more championships.
- LeBron joining the Warriors for the league minimum next season, anyone?
- Say what you will about Draymond Green, but his basketball is beautiful to watch. He does literally everything on the court.
- When Green drains the 3 ball, the Warriors are impossible to stop.
- Steph Curry is a sore winner. He’s phenomenal, but I can understand why some folks want to punch him in the face.
- Matthew Dellavedova is sorely missed in this series. He brings hustle, energy and aggression that Kyrie and Deron do not.
- The Warriors coaching staff is amazing. They are snuffing out all of the Cavaliers’ key offensive strategies. They have made Tristan Thompson into a big fat zero in terms of production. Give credit where credit is due.
- Kevin Durant has followed the LeBron James playbook to a T. The end justifies the means. It does not matter what you do so long as you win the ring. He understands this, and many fans do not. There are no moral victories to be won by staying with the OKC Thunder.
- If you do not know who Biedrins or Azubuike are, then you are NOT a true Warriors fan. Get off your high horse and bandwagon, and resist the urge to offer your insightful analysis. Thank you.
- It is fun to offer contrarian picks and viewpoints, but give respect where respect is due. The Warriors are one of the most dominant teams of all time, and they are dangerously close to making history yet again.
I am done babbling. We are almost ready for Game 4. Let’s go!
