An exhausted Lebron James, with knees dropped and his hands slapping the floor, etched another win against the Atlanta Hawks to push their series lead to 3-0. One game left and one final push before the NBA finals. If the basketball gods are kind, James will be in a collision course against the NBA’s MVP and offensive specialist Stephen Curry. The NBA king (Lebron) will finally have a true threat to his throne. When Stephen Curry was playing in college, Lebron flew all the way to watch him, cheering and marveling on Curry’s offensive arsenals. Now, Lebron and the Cavaliers will have to find an answer to Steph’s supremacy, something that has boggled teams throughout this season.
This series will have a lot of subplots to add to its drama. For Curry, winning the MVP is nothing if he doesn’t go all the way and win the NBA championship. His splash brother, Klay Thompson almost got traded for Kevin Love but fortunately didn’t materialized and Cleveland grabbed Love in return. Steve Kerr, the Golden State Warriors head coach, wanted David Blatt to join him as his assistant, but Blatt was offered the head coaching job instead by Cleveland. For Lebron, this is all about a questioned legacy. Will he ever win a championship without his two best buddies in Miami (Wade and Bosh)? Will he finally deliver Cleveland its first ever NBA championship after decades of drought? When the series enfolds each of those questions will be answered.
One man stands after another, Lebron is not backing up on a challenge. He lives up to this moment, like what he had done with Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunders in 2012, as Miami cruised its way to a 4-1 NBA finals. But this time it’s different. If you looked up the season matchup with Golden State, Cleveland never won a game against the Warriors. Both of those wins are blowup games (114-97 and 104-89) although, it doesn’t say anything going to the playoffs, but it’s a clear indication that the Warriors will be a tough team to topple.
With a cramped up Lebron James dropping in the floor in game 3 Overtime win against the Atlanta Hawks, it was pretty clear – Lebron wants it more than ever.
The NBA’s king is ready for the bigger war that is coming. Stephen Curry is saving his biggest performance in June. The stars are slowly aligning for the NBA’s biggest series and the biggest collision.
Conventional Science, told us what will happen if two stars colliding each other… Catastrophe is bound to happen.
Wait till June comes.
