History In The Making (On Father’s Day)


On this Father’s Day (Happy Father’s Day!), this game 7 of the NBA Finals will not only end the 2015-16 NBA season, but we will see history in the making not matter who wins tonight.

For the city of Cleveland, this could end the misery of not winning a championship in over 50 years by any of the major franchises. As a Chicago Bulls fan, I despise the Cleveland Cavaliers and LeBron James (however, I do have respect for his greatness and his abilities). As for Cleveland, the city with a bunch of factories according to Joakim Noah, I feel bad for. Chicago Cubs fans might be the only ones suffering more than Cleveland so I get it.

For the Bay Area, this would cap off a season that could never be duplicated. This is the first team ever to win 73 games and only have single-digit losses. Also, this was the first time in league history that a player was named MVP by an unanimous vote. And to defeat the Cavaliers for a second straight year with Cleveland having a healthy team this time around, will solidify their place as one of the greatest teams ever. The Golden State Warriors backs are against the wall dealing with injuries of their own and losing back to games for the second time all year (Oklahoma City Thunder series). If they lose, it would be an epic collapse and one of the biggest disappointments in league history. What will the defending champs do?

Nevertheless, we will see an entertaining game tonight on this Father’s Day. Once again, Happy Father’s Day!

Game 7

Game 7… The end of a battle… Equivalent to a season finale of your favorite television show (mines would be The Flash)… Similar to the last movie in a trilogy (like The Matrix trilogy)…  It is one of the most prolific events across all sports (second only to The Super Bowl in my opinion).

Game 7 is a different atmosphere. The teams have become very accustomed to their opponent over the previous 6 games. There’s no more making  adjustments at this point. Your strategy is not surprising and almost irrelevant. At this point, it’s all about heart… Who wants it more… And how bad do you want it.

The Golden State Warriors and the Oklahoma City Thunder are the latest victims of this scenario. In my opinion I believe either the Warriors win by double digits, win a close game, or the Thunder sneaks by in Oracle arena. This could be the last game in the Durant/Westbrook era (Kevin Durant is a free agent in July).

What seemed like a sure trip the NBA Finals, will make for an epic game one way or another. When being down 3 games to 1 and having Klay Thompson making 11 3 pointers in an improbable game 6 win sets up for something magical… And having this game on Memorial Day, will make it that much more memorable.
