The NBA Finals – 2016

Let me start by saying “I like a LeBron a lot”. I think he has been given too much punishment for being arrogant in the past. But, I truly believe he has come around and become a team player that all we all wanted him to be.

So, let’s not dig into the past but enjoy what we have today. No one could have predicted how the NBA finals have gone so far. No one thought the Warriors bench were going to dismantle the Cavs in the first two games. No one thought Cavs would turn around and give Warriors a 30 pt beating in the third. Even, then everyone thought that Cavs would be lucky to stretch it to 5. No one thought Cavs would stretch it to 6 specially when Warriors had the Game 5 at home. Once Cavs did that, no one thought they could do it again and yet they did.

So, here we have it.. The NBA Finals 2016: Game 7.

It has been fun to fun to watch even though the games haven’t been that close.

So, before the finals start tomorrow, I thought it would be interesting to see if Warriors have really stepped up against the Cavs in the Finals and it is really interesting to see the Data.


Have a look for your self…


What’s really interesting is to see what LeBron has done in the finals. If there is truly any single player who can take the whole team on his back, its him (as we recently heard Richard Jefferson say)

I have been in some interesting discussions with a lot of people who haven’t really liked the fact that I have supported Cavs in the past, then Miami over the last few years and Cavs again since last year. And, it’s quite simple for me. I like that guy, I think he has had enough punishments for his arrogance in the past and I really hope its time for him.

I really hope he can redeem himself with a trophy tomorrow. and I hope its not just the NBA Finals MVP trophy , it’s the Larry O’Brien Trophy.

Good Luck LeBron and the Cavs
