NBA Finals Prediction: Thunder Rolls

In NBA on June 12, 2012 at 6:52 am

What’s more awkward than this hug is Lebron James still being considered The Chosen One.

When it’s all said and done, which city’s going to hurt more? Seattle, as they watch what could’ve been? Or Cleveland, as they watch what could’ve been?

No matter which team wins the NBA Finals this year, there will always be a collective sadness lingering over a city who isn’t even involved in the 2012 series. Will it be Cleveland? Or Seattle?

Seattle? Or Cleveland?

Both teams have ‘Big Threes,’ a term that was so relevant in Boston only a few years ago, yet now seems to work as the general terminology for the three best starters on any team. Regardless, one team earned theirs through hard work and lucky drafts, while the other bought theirs. One team has their “Big Three” and maybe another player or two whom you could name otherwise, while the other is stacked from top-to-bottom.

Just like the Dallas Mavericks of last year.

And we all know how that turned out.

Pictured here is not the Miami Heat. Be prepared for another to be taken this year.

The Miami “Big Three” that came together two summers ago to win “not six, not seven, not eight,” championships will again end their season with not even one. Cleveland-ites can laugh and give their team’s owner another year to fulfill that promise of winning a championship before that one guy ever wins his.

It doesn’t see fair, does it?

With all the lies and conniving ploys Clay Bennet pulled to steal the team from their former home, we’ll now be forced to watch him hoist the Larry O’Brien trophy David Stern will hand him, only a few short years later. With the weather and everything else in Seattle already as depressing as it is, to now have to deal with this? Either way, if you’re in the greater Seattle area, lock up the sharp objects, hide the rat poison and cue Garth Brookes, because the Thunder’s gonna to roll.

OKC in Six.
