The stage is set: this year’s NBA Finals is truly a clash of titans. Basketball is a team game through and through, but this year pits the mercurial MVP, 3PT deadeye, Vine legend, and most importantly…Riley’s Dad, Steph Curry against the 4 time MVP, the Human Locomotive with the most talked about headband in the history of sports, LeBron James. In other exciting news, you’re back reading the WearTesters Weekender Issue 20, our Finals Preview! Enjoy the article and be sure to share your thoughts and predictions below.
WearTesters Weighs In
Keeping it short and sweet – I want the Dubs to win it all, but I don’t want to jinx anything so I won’t be predicting sh*t lol. I’m just proud to have my team finally winning. Championship or not, this is one of the best teams I’ve ever witnessed – and I’ve seen some great teams do their thing over my 32 years of existence. #DubNation
I think the 2015 Finals will be a critical one. Can David really battle it out with Goliath, and win? For the younger kids, a different analogy: can Kratos really go up against Zeus, and win? This last set of games comes down to defense and how Kerr will handle LeBron. Will he double up on him and leave a hole in the Warriors defense or will he put Klay, Green, or Barnes on James and make the Cavs earn every point? Height is an issue here and this may be another game, like the struggles the Warriors saw with the Grizzlies, in which size does matter
The people I can’t wait to see battle it out are Curry and Irving. Both play as if the ball is attracted to them–they each have ridiculous handle–and both are confident. They’re incredibly similar in height, play, and stats, so it’ll be fascinating to see what happens. Both teams can shoot well, which is why it’ll probably come down to defense.
With the FIFA scandal coming to light, I wouldn’t be surprised if we find out in three years that the NBA has controlled results, placed bribes, etc. I can see this series going all seven games, probably being the most watched Finals in a while, and generating the most hype and buzz for apparel sales. I’d love to see David (or Kratos, whichever analogy you prefer) conquer. I have grown fond of this team throughout the season. I want the Warriors.
In Case You Missed It…
Reebok has to figure out what they want the Z-Pum to do. but as of now theReebok ZPump is best used for low intensity workouts and casual jogs.
They look great casually, so if that’s all you care about then they’ve got you covered. But if you wanted to play in a pair, you’ve been warned.
