    I am rather new to picking NBA finals but I have a long history of picking NHL playoff series as well as NFL games and MLB playoff series and am very good at it. My picks for this matchup is as follows:

    Golden State in 6

    Pretty sure that even pro wrestling is more unpredictable than the NBA.

    Durant is going to average 30 points again.
    Who's going to guard KD?

    We got a mini Celtics-Lakers rivalry circa 60s, when it was so one-sided.

    Who could forget the 60's; what a great decade of basketball that was. :sarcasm:

    The only prediction I'll make on this- this won't go 7 games so it won't go head-on with the Money in the Bank PPV.

    That's how little I care about this rerun.

    And it's not like there's a CAN LEBRON BEAT THE MIGHTY WARRIORS thing because he already did that 2 years ago.

    No matter what happens, it's the same thing we've seen either way- Team A beats Team B or vice-versa.

    No new blood, no fresh faces- same old same old.

    I have not missed an NBA Finals since 2005 (vacation).

    This will be the first Finals EVER I miss on purpose.

    I would rather watch Jinder/Reigns 100 times than LeBron/Warriors Part Infinity.

    yeah because uneducated basketball fans like you think losing before the finals is better than losing in it

    Was actually coming here to post that. :laugh:

    Warriors in a sweep or Cavs in 7. Probably Warriors in a sweep.

    Not nearly as funny as people who think championships in a team sport should have any bearing on an individual's claim as the "greatest of all-time"

    Two game seven losses on the home floor, yet how many people would have been surprised by that result?

    Do any Cleveland fans really like their team's chances, I wonder?

    Warriors in 4 and Curry goes down as the greatest basketball player of all time...

    ...well not really but it almost as silly as saying Lebron is

    No, it's clear you're insecure about Jordan's legacy but Lebron is clearly, clearly the best non-center to ever play basketball.

    (He probably is better than any center too but it is difficult to compare)

    The question is if Cleveland will guard anybody. Considering their coach, the answer is probably not.

    I’m a Lebron fan, he has no chance. I’ll watch to appreciate the greatness of Lebron and Curry but this is stale and KD is the worst. Splash bros did it without him and were way more fun to watch, the league was more fun to watch and the league and fans were better off before that cowardly move by KD. Join guys that already did it without you... weak.

    The basketball gods are cruel. They teased us with the possibility of CLE/GSW both losing.... and then this.

    Seriously, I hope the ratings tank. At least the casual fake fans who only care about stars will be happy.

    Real basketball fans lost.

    Episode IV: There is no hope

    Warriors in 5. LeBron will do his thing and drag their sorry asses to one win per usual, but that's it.

    This feels like a lose-lose for me.

    Either LeBron wins AGAIN or Golden State wins AGAIN.

    Either way, the same side wins again and we have to wait another year to see something new.
