So the NBA Finals are set, the Miami, after defeating the Boston Celtics in 5 games, is set to play the Los Lakers. Both teams had gruelling match-ups against some very tough competition.
Both teams I would say deserve to be here, even though at the start of the playoffs I actually had the Raptors facing off against the Lakers, little did I realize that would not be the case.
Another team that I though might have had a chance to make the Finals was Denver. Those boys we nothing short of incredible. After being down 3-1 to both the Clippers and the Utah Jazz and coming back and winning both series I believed history would repeat itself.
But it wasn’t to be. The Lakers showed their dominance in the series against Denver. Anthony Davis and LeBron were unstoppable.
Mind you Miami was no slouch either, they took out the number one seeded Milwaukee Bucks in 5 games. I didn’t think that was possible but it happened. they also took out Indiana as well as the Boston Celtics.
What amazes me about the Heat players is their will and their tenacity to win each and every. I have been especially amazed but Bam Adebayo and the young Tyler Herro.
Tyler Herro who is all of twenty-years-old has proved that he can hang with big boys in the NBA. But now he is going to be facing the self-proclaimed king of the NBA in LeBron James.
Can Herro, Dragic, Butler and Robinson match-up fairly against the heavily favorite Lakers? We will see on Wednesday as game one of the Finals gets underway.
