The Golden State Warriors are appearing in their first NBA Finals since 2019 where they lost to the Toronto Raptors in six games. The Warriors lost star Kevin Durant that summer to the Brooklyn Nets via free agency. With new, young role players like guard Jordan Poole (who is looking like the third Splash Brother), guard/forward Andrew Wiggins, forward Kevon Looney, forward Jonathan Kuminga, and guard/forward Moses Moody in addition to the championship core of guard Stephen Curry, guard Klay Thompson, and forward Draymond Green, the “Dubs” seem to be the favorite to win their fourth NBA title together (previous titles won in 2015, 2017, and 2018). Stephen Curry was named Western Conference Finals MVP after their five-game series with the Mavericks but the award the talented point guard has never been named is Finals MVP. If Golden State can beat Boston and Curry has a success, maybe that aspiration can come true. Then, Curry will be a more respected player all-time by the NBA media. The Boston Celtics have made it to the Eastern Conference Finals four times since 2017 and finally broke through to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010. Also, Celtics head coach Ime Udoka has led the team to a Finals appearance in his first season with the team, a phenomenal feat. Led by star young forwards Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, the Celtics will pose a threat to the favorites to win it all, Golden State. Tatum and Brown are supported by long time Celtic Marcus Smart and big man Al Horford. The two veterans give Boston timely shooting and tough defense. The question will be is if Boston can win at home and steal at least one on the road in San Francisco. The Celtics will have to do that to win the series against a veteran team that makes timely shots and knows how to win in championship situations. I cannot wait to see the chess match between Warriors coach Steve Kerr and Celtics coach Ime Udoka.

Prediction: Warriors in 6

I hop everyone enjoys the 2022 NBA Finals :).
