The Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers for the past two years have battled toe-to-toe in the NBA Finals. Each year fans watched Lebron James and Steph Curry adjust their game and embrace their leadership roles to help improve their team.

Obviously, the lack of talent hasn’t been the issue.  The ability to effectively use the team’s talent as a whole differentiates the winner versus the champion. Who’s going to make it happen this year is under question. Since the previous years, there have been a few changes. Kevin Durant would be one of them.

The 6’9 all around player has returned from a sprained MCL injury just in time for the playoffs. The once all-star player for OKC decided to join the Splash brothers after his nine-year career with OKC. Durant’s decision could prove beneficial for himself and his team for finals.

The Cavaliers made history in last year’s finals overcoming a 3-1 deficit to the Warriors in the championship series. Will Durant will make a difference this year? That would seem to be the case. However, the Cavaliers are no pushover. Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson played major roles in last years’ playoff games.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were on a rollercoaster of success for their last seasonal games, losing their last four games but they’re off to a good start for this playoff series, 2-0 over the Indiana Pacers. The Golden State Warriors are rarely having the record-breaking season as last year but their 67-15 record proves they’re focused.

Maybe we’ll get to see round three of these two teams in finals.
