Title: NBA
Post by: Jectz on June 16, 2016, 12:48:01 PM
BRIEF HISTORY

The NBA stands for the (N)ational (B)asketball (A)ssociation. It was founded as the BAA in 1946 but soon changed to the NBA in 1949. The first NBA game (BAA at the time) to ever be played was on November 1st, 1946. It was hosted by the Toronto Huskies in Canada. The first ever team to win a NBA Championship was the Boston Celtics who now have a total of 17. (The most) There are 12 current franchises who have never won a NBA Championship uncluding, Utah Jazz, Indiana Pacers, Brooklyn Nets, Orlando Magic, and the Pheonix Suns. The next 7 have never even appeared in a Finals, Toronto Raptors, Charlotte Hornets, Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies, New Orlean Pelicans and the Minnesota Timberwolves.

CURRENT

The 2016-17 NBA Season started on October 25th. With the a few games. The Trailblazzers defeated the Jazz, while LeBron dropped a triple-double in the 117-88 blowout against the knicks. The final game we saw a newly considered "Super Team" get blownout on their home court 129-100 in a game where Kawhi showed Dominance with 35 points, 15/15 from the free throw line and in just 32 minutes.

Leggo warriors! Cavs have no depth. Warriors Bench is too good for the Cavs to pull out the upset.

I agree their bench is way better, but i'm still a Cavs fan. I have hope. Now here's a question, the Warriors are better but can / will the Cavs force Game 7?

The Cavs were up a 31-11 after Q1. At half it's Cavs up 59-43. Curry and Green of the Warriors are already at 3 fouls each.

Well it's official your 2016 NBA Champs are...
JK! Cleveland Won to force a Game 7. This was a crazy one in which Steph Curry fouled out and was ejected for the first time in his career. LeBron led the way with 41pts, 8reb, 11as, plus 3 Blocks. The Cavs are now 1 game away from completing argueably the greatest comeback in NBA Playoffs History.

LeBron James's Stats: (this series)

Points: 181 (30.2ppg) Rebounds: 68 (11.3rpg)
Assists: 51 (8.3apg) Blocks: 13 (2bpg) Steals: 16 (2.7spg)

He leads both teams in all 5 of those categories. If (GSW) win would LeBron still be named Finals MVP?
