Cavs stun Warriors to win NBA Finals!

Many of us expected an epic series, and Game 7 certainly delivered.

The Block – The video above will be replayed for generations. This highlight will forever be one of the iconic moments that define the greatness of Lebron James.

The Shot II – Cleveland fans have had to endure a 52-year championship drought, along with the never-ending montage of failures including The Shot from Michael Jordan. Now Cleveland fans have their own “shot” to celebrate for generations, as Kyrie Irving delivered the three-point dagger over Steph Curry to give the Cavs a three-point lead with under a minute left in the game.

The Comeback – No team had ever come back from a 3-1 definite in the NBA Finals. Also, the Cavs were facing the record-setting 73-win Warriors and had to win two games on their court, including game 7. This was a comeback for the ages. Much of this comeback was fueled by the arrogance of the Warriors as they called out Lebron James after game 4, only to see Lebron rise to the challenge and make them eat their words.

The Collapse – Speaking of Steph Curry and the Warriors, this one has to hurt. The either choked or they were exposed. Either way this was an epic fail. The Cavs turned up their defense on the Splash Brothers and dared them to try to take over the game. They wilted under the pressure.

This series, and this Cavs championship, will be talked about for years to come.

Should Draymond Green be suspended?

Draymond Green has a knack for committed questionable fouls, with many of his kicks and blows somehow finding the groin area of opposing players. The NBA has a knack for letting him get away with it.

What will the NBA go now after another Draymond blow to the groin, this one to a Lebron James who was massacred all night long by the Warriors but barely sniffed the free throw line?

Does anyone know what a foul is in the NBA these days?

Lebron James

Lebron James had a rough night last night as the Golden State Warriors took a 3-1 lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. He settled for too many three-point shots (going 1-5) and seemed way too anxious to pass the ball when he drove to the hoop. His dribbling skills seem to have disappeared and he’s become a turnover machine. As a result, he shied away from trying to finish at the rim all night.

But can you blame him? Lebron James was basically mugged by the Warriors defense every time he got into the paint. Of course, this has happened to pretty much every player on both teams throughout this series. The NBA seems to have decided that most fouls in the paint won’t be called unless it’s a flagrant slap, push or hold.

The result last night was a game that didn’t seem to resemble basketball at times, and also risked a physical confrontation as players from both teams pushed the envelope on the physical nature of the game.

This bizarre turn of events also plays into the hands of the Warriors. The Cavs need to be effective in the paint in order to run their offense, while the Warriors thrive with long jumpers that then open up the paint on passes off of aggressive perimeter defense from the opposing team.

Can Cavs stop the Warriors?

Lebron James 2

This series is a huge opportunity for Lebron James. Many are contemplating what will be said of him if he goes 2-5 in the NBA Finals, but he will truly enhance his legendary career if he can bring a championship to the City of Cleveland.

The oddsmakers have the Warriors as the favorites, but most experts expect a close series.

Frankly, if the Cavs play as well as they did in the Toronto series, dominating the paint and nailing three-pointers, then they should be able to topple the Warriors, who have not been playing their best basketball.

This could and should be an epic series . . .

Thunder blow golden opportunity

The sleeping giant has awakened.

The Oklahoma City Thunder were poised to pull of an epic upset as they sat on a 3-1 lead on the 73-win Golden State Warriors. That now seems like a long time ago.

The Thunder had an incredible opportunity to close out the series last night as they nursed a lead in the fourth quarter, but Klay Thompson went wild with 11 three-pointers, which seemed to inspire Steph Curry to return to MVP form as well.
