Golden State, as expected by most (A lot of people thought Lebron was gonna carry these guys to a title) won the NBA Title last night. It wasn’t a shock for me, at least. I was shocked that this series was actually competitive. That’s how great Lebron James is.
Also, my series prediction was sort of right:
Dubs in 5. 6 at max. And when it happens, I’ll make sure that my guy Aaron Legaspi will do pushups on camera.
And yes, Aaron will do pushups on camera. Soon. Very soon. And it’ll be on the blog.
I don’t need to really say much other than Golden State won this series because I-G-G-Y, Draymond, and Stephen Curry shoving some noise about Matthew Dellavedova being the “Curry Stopper” (People really believed that, too. Social Media is a weird thing).
It wasn’t like this was a fluke championship. Golden State won 67 games this year, and won finished the season 83-20. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think a lot of teams would have beaten them. Playing the “if” game will give you a headache. It gives me one just writing about it.
Lebron did all he could do, but clearly, when you have to rely on Earl Smith III for games in the playoffs, that’s when you know you’re in trouble. As weird as it sounds, Lebron probably helped out his legacy here. Even though Lebron chose this path for himself, he single-handily got this team to win 2 games against this squad. Impressive. Impressive to the point where people thought they would win this series after game 3.
I’ll be back… sooner than later.
