So we are on to round 2 of the NBA playoffs, and in the Eastern conference we will see the Brooklyn Nets and the Milwaukee bucks, in what I would consider a big east match-up. Why do I say it will be a Big east match-up? Kevin Durant and Giannis Antetokounmpo.
These two players are giants in the Eastern Conference at the moment. Kevin Durant who has already won 3 championships with the Golden State Warriors, is looking to win his fourth as the leader of the Brooklyn Nets.
Giannis on the other hand is still looking to win his first championship. Could this be the year the Bucks are able to break through and go all way? Possibly. But I feel that the Nets could prove to be to much to handle for the bucks.
Not only do the Nets have Kevin Durant, but they also have Kyrie Irving and James Harden. Granted the East’s big three haven’t played much as a unit but when all three are healthy they can be scary.
The Bucks though have their own big three sort of speak with Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jrue Holiday and Kris Middleton, the question remains which team’s big three will be victorious?
Well we won’t have to wait long as game one of the Eastern conference semis start tomorrow.
I am anxious to see how this series plays out. On one hand I want the Bucks to win so they can potentially move on to the East finals and eventually the finals, but I have a funny feeling it will Kevin Durant and the Nets getting the last laugh.
