Daryl Woodford’s Finals Predictions
Cavs to win in 7
I know this is not a popular choice but I have a feeling that the king is going to reign once more and overcome one of the best teams in the history of the game. This won’t be easy at all, LeBron has to get the better of not 1 all-star but 4 all-stars and future Hall of Famers. Curry, Durrant, Green and Thompson should have the firepower to overcome the worst Cavs team that LeBron has carried to the final but I can never write off the King
Ray Burton’s Finals Predictions
Golden state in 5 games
Despite continually showing that he is in the conversation for GOAT and carrying Cleveland on his back through these playoffs, LeBron James is destined to be on the losing team again in the finals. Cleveland has only James, and perhaps Kevin Love in the upper echelon. The Warriors with Durant, Curry and Thompson match up well against the Cavs. Their ability to score heavily in all phases will destroy Cleveland.
Jordan Lombard’s Final Predictions
I have no idea what I’m talking about, but here’s how it’s going down. The Golden State Warriors (f*cking fantastic name) seem to be the team to beat going into this, they’re the Manchester City and Barcelona of the NBA. Not many people can f*ck with them by the looks of it.
I’m always surprised when a team that starts with Cleveland is near any kind of finals. Here’s my only bit of Basketball knowledge this is the worst team the Lebron has had to carry for the Cavs?
So here’s who’s winning and who’s losing if you haven’t already guessed. The most badass name in the NBA will be beating the team from Cleveland.
Lebron is an old man and hasn’t got what it takes to take on those still brilliantly named warriors.
This is going to be Real Madrid 3 – 1 Liverpool embarrassing. This is Karius’ career embarrassing. – what I’m saying is that the Warriors are going to flex their dominance all over Cleveland.
Again, the name thing is a real advantage here.
But even I, a guy who has never seen more than 12 seconds of basketball in his life isn’t going to just throw around silly scores for the sake of it. Plus I don’t actually know how the scoring works to begin with.
Dan Trigg’s Final Predictions
LeBron James has been the star man for the Cavs, he has almost single-handedly dragged the Cavs to the NBA final. I think this could be a step too far. The 3 all-stars of Golden state I feel will prove too much. Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green have played out of their ski all season and all 3 make the All-star roster. I predict a game full of style, Class and determination and in my opinion Golden state will prove too much.
Hoyt Buckinham’s Final Predictions
Warriors in 5
Lebron might be the best player in the world, but this series will come down to the role players. The Warriors get the most out of players like Jordan Bell while the Cavs struggle to find any offence outside Lebron. Kevin Love being out for any extended time will destroy any chances they have to win. Lebron will steal a game here or there, but there is too much firepower on Golden State
