The Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors will be facing off later today for the most coveted achievement in basketball-the Larry O’Brien trophy. The Warriors have been in the last four championship matchups, and won three of them in the progress.
The Raptors are a hardworking, gritty squad that’s backed by a country of avid (and sometimes wild) supporters who haven’t ever won an O’Brien trophy (They took to the streets in Toronto after they won the ECF!! WILD.).
The Warriors not only have five all-stars on their current roster, but also arguably the best shooter of all time on their team. Not to say they haven’t been dogged by recent injuries to their lineup, but the fact they have such talent illustrates the idea that they’re just the playground bully of the NBA.
I think it’s just time for someone else to win one, and make the league a little more exciting.
I know many close friends that are Warriors fans, and of course don’t want any mercy for the Raptors, or anyone for that matter. And who can blame them? We all want our teams to win and win and win.
Kawhi “The Klaw” Leonard is obviously a big factor in the Finals as well. His humble yet incredible play this entire season has transformed him from a good player to a Top 3 player in the Association. I think he deserves the championship due to his quiet leadership and exciting skillset to watch.
Hopefully Leonard’s playoff dominance will continue, and the infamous Drake curse will be suspended during the extent of the Finals.
Drop a comment on who YOU think deserves the championship more.
