Cavs/Warriors dominance isn’t bad for the NBA
The NBA regular season was a long prelude to a foregone conclusion. Since the final buzzer sounded in Game 7 of the NBA Finals, last year, it’s been clear that the Cavs and the Warriors are on a collision course for their grudge match.
The bellyaching has already started that the inevitability of the Finals, and the concentrated dominance of the Cavs and the Warriors is bad for the NBA, but Colin disagrees. He pointed out that even though the Cavs and the Warriors dominance has been bad for the regular season, but if they play another historic Finals, no one will remember what a drag it was.
“A disaster is Wizards/Spurs.”
LeBron can surpass MJ by beating the Warriors with Durant
For many people, Michael Jordan will always be the greatest NBA player of all time. Colin still ranks MJ ahead of LeBron, but he thinks by beating the new Warriors super team, LeBron can eventually pass Jordan.
LeBron beating the Warriors two or three times would be more impressive than any of Jordan’s titles because he never beat a truly great team. Golden State might have the most talented collection of NBA players ever assembled, and it still might not be enough to beat LeBron.
“KD to the Warriors didn’t kill the league, because if they win we’ll talk about it for 20 years, and it’s also the absolute thing LeBron needed to potentially elevate over MJ.”
