Hello people of all genders, it’s that time of the year again, it’s the annual match-up between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors. No it’s not 2015, and 2016 is a year behind us, the year is 2017 and we are living in the NBA Twilight Zone!
The Cavs are hoping to defend The Land and the title and have reloaded their roster with…uh…Kyle Korver? Meanwhile the Warriors are attempting to erase the meme that was created after they blew a 3-1 lead by bringing in some guy named Kevin Durant who’s mother was once da real MVP.
This is an epic end to a trilogy of championships for the NBA. We all know the third one is always the best (like uh…Revenge of the Sith?) and we all fully expect the NBA to reboot this series next year (they might even make their own universe, I would love a JR Smith origin story). So Jesse and I are here to get you ready for this epic showdown by walking you through what LeBron James means to the city of Cleveland and to the game of basketball.
Jesse: So Kevin, you’re living in Cleveland right now. The Cavs are coming off of their first NBA Championship and are primed for their third straight finals appearance. LeBron is at the peak of his powers and is seemingly unstoppable. Is Cleveland ready to handle the prospect of back-to-back titles? And how many newborn babies do you know that are named LeBron?
