The Intern on: LBJ vs. The World

by Dan Bilicki In: Basketball

Tonight kicks off the final push towards the most sought after prize of the NBA, the Naismith trophy. I would love to be able to say that I am looking forward to it but, all in all, I am honesty very apathetic to the whole situation. All that this series will accomplish is illuminate how weak the Eastern Conference really is. It’s not even the Cleveland Cavaliers vs. the San Antonio Spurs its Lebron James vs. the Spus. You know that it’s sad when the only way that the Cavs can even stay in the series is if LBJ has an ungodly performance every night. None of this “passing up on the last shot so Donyell Marshall can jack up a brick” type garbage.

This series will also highlight Mike Brown’s embarrassingly awkward ineptitude. I honestly don’t think Mike Brown could coach a good house league team to their championship trophy let alone an NBA team. This series has the makings of being a proverbial re-enactment of the battle at the Alamo. The Cavs will hold off the Spurs for as long as they can but will eventually crumble under the sheer ferocity that is the San Antonio Spurs.

I say the Spurs in Six.
