Are Golden State Warriors Taking the Fun out of NBA?
It is just too easy for the Golden State Warriors. After two games in the NBA Finals, the Western Conference Champs look like they are toying with the league's best player. Dub City has a two game lead on LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers and suddenly a sweep looks entirely possible.
The Cavs have seen this before and they did come back from a 3-1 deficit a year ago to shock the Warriors in 7. However, Golden State is a much different team with Kevin Durant. A great team became elite the instant KD signed with the Warriors as a free agent. Although some people are enjoying the series and Golden State's perfect record in the postseason, others are wondering if the game will lose some of its popularity because of how easy Steph and KD are making it look.
There is already talk that free agent to be Chris Paul could be interested in joining the Spurs this offseason. That would definitely make that rivalry even more interesting over the next few years. In the meantime, LeBron and company will go back to work and try and figure out a way to slow down the Bay Area machine and keep hoop fans from worrying that the game is just not competitive anymore.
