The NBA Finals

It will be the Golden State Warriors, the team with the best record in the NBA this past season, taking on the Cleveland Cavaliers, led by Lebron James, who is appearing in his fifth consecutive NBA Finals.
The fun begins tonight in California and should be an interesting series with this season's NBA Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry leading the way for Golden State.
Cleveland will be without forward Kevin Love (out for the duration of the playoffs with injuries since the first round) and may also be missing guard Kyrie Irving as well.
The Warriors have one of the best offenses in the NBA while Cleveland can grind it out with stellar defense and of course with James leading the offense, can never be counted out.
However, everything has been falling into place this year for the Warriors, including having their nemesis, the 2014 NBA champion San Antonio Spurs, being knocked out in the opening round of the playoffs by the Los Angeles Clippers.
James is a great player, but he will not be able to carry the Cavs and as a result, they will fall short in the NBA Finals,  just as they did with "King" James back in the 2007 finals against the Spurs.
Look for the "splash brothers" (Curry and Klay Thompson) to do their thing from three point range while the supporting cast chips in to give the Warriors their first title in 40 years.

PREDICTION  -  Golden State Warriors win the series in FIVE GAMES.
