Get Rich From Fantasy

Same Thing, Different Day

The NBA playoffs are once again upon us.  Only compared to last year a few things are different.  The Atlanta Hawks are the surprise team in the eastern conference and have locked up the top seed for the playoffs.  The Cavaliers are once again one of the top teams thanks to the return LeBron James. The Golden State Warriors have finally turned the corner to run away with the Western Conferences’ top seed along the NBA’s best record.  All this behind the MVP caliber season of Stephen Curry.

Through all of this, one thing remains the same.  The San Antonio Spurs are still one of the NBA’s most dangerous team.  There are few trios, if any, that have had more success than Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, and future hall of famer Tim Duncan.  You can even throw emerging superstar Kawhi Leonard into the mix.

The defending NBA champions have been coming on pretty strong over the last month of the season.  A team that was at one point the 7th seed in the western conference is making a push for the 2nd team behind the Warriors.  Currently they are only half a game out of the 2nd seed in the west with 3 games to play.  Even during this season, it seemed to me as though age has finally caught up with the Spurs.  I mean, it had to happen at some point right?

But then, in their usual fashion, the Spurs are starting to look like one of the better teams in the league heading into the playoffs.  At this point we should all know that as long as the Spurs have Tim Duncan and Gregg Popovich there is always a chance to win yet another championship.  It seems no matter what the situation is we are always doubting them because eventually they will lose their Magic touch.  The only way for Tim Duncan and Popovich to not have success in the league is for them to just retire.

The way the playoffs are shaping up I can’t help but wonder and hope for a Cavaliers and Spurs NBA Finals.  It would be LeBron’s fifth trip to the finals in as many years and it would also be the third year in a row a team with LeBron James on it will be facing the San Antonio Spurs.  The media would sure have a field day with that one.  These two teams also seem to have the most momentum heading the postseason.  I don’t see any reason why this vision of mine couldn’t become a reality.  It would surely help the legacy of both stars.
