Another good history in NBA

Here I go again after 3 years writing about the NBA finals between Miami Heat vs. San Antonio Spurs, wherein the Miami Heat won the title for the second time. I’ve found myself writing again the very historical NBA Finals between Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Golden State Warriors.
I am a big fan of LeBron James. When he used to play in Miami my heart was in Miami, but when he left his team and join his former team which is the Cleveland Cavaliers and his Native land as well, I began to be called a “bandwagon” fan.

I have watched the whole series of playoffs in Eastern Conference as well as Western Conference. Not so thrilling in East Finals, but more exciting in West Finals. Cavaliers were the Eastern Conference Finals champion.

Oklahoma City or Thunders led by Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook was ahead in the series (3-1) over Warriors and almost got the chance to play in the finals. But unfortunately, through the expense and brilliance of Steph Curry and the rest of his team they defeated the OKC. The Golden State Warriors proceed to the finals for the second straight time again which they are the 2015 NBA Champion defeating last year the Cleveland Cavaliers minus the 2 injured key players Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving that time.

Golden State Warriors in elimination round broke the record of Chicago Bulls with 73 wins and only 9 loses. But Chicago Bulls headed by Michael Jordan got the ring on his time with their 72-10, while Warriors did not.

The finals have come, Cavaliers and Warriors rematch! In the first 2 games, Warriors are up by 2 games. But Cavaliers came back on game 3 and almost totally sweep the opponent because in their came back they only lose in game 4. They swept the Warriors in their last 3 games. History in NBA recorded because they are the only team came back with the 3-1 deficit and got the title and named 2016 NBA Champion. Another history recorded was the first team in finals with 2 players (LeBron and Irving) got 41 points each. Lebron James named MVP finals because of his all-around effort.

Critics and Fans of Golden State said that NBA is rigged. According to them the true winner is Adam Silver the NBA Commissioner, because he planned all the way to make the series reached 7 games so that NBA earn more money considering the ticket was so expensive amounting to 26,000 dollars. According to them proof that NBA is rigged, were so obvious in game 5 and 6, because Draymond Green in game 5 was suspended due to a clash with LeBron James that happens to be a loss for Warriors. While referees careless call of fouls in Warriors resulting to Curry’s ejection in the court.

As a fan and observer, the very reason why Green was suspended in game 5 were just because of the 3 flagrant fouls he earned, and that was the NBA rules. Yes I agree that there are careless call by referees, but it affected by both team. But I have to admit more bad calls on Warriors! I pity on Curry, he must not be ejected. He burst his patience by the wrong calls of the referees. Well that’s basketball life!

I think, It is possible to be rigged if their score are so close, but it is not.

What I know is, I am so happy because after 52 years of drought Cleveland Cavaliers were now achieved the respect of NBA history and that is due to the heroic of Kyrie Irving when he shoot a 3pt basket and break their tie score to GSW, plus the block of LeBron to deny the 2 point possible score of Andrei Iguodala and of course the team effort that leads them to get the 2016 NBA title.

Lebron once promise to bring the championship in his Native land, and wow he kept his promise.

Congrats my Cavs for your superb performance! You played so intense especially in game 6. And that’s one of the best.

Still congratulation also to Golden State, you did your best I know, but this year is not yours, it’s from Cleveland.
