Now it’s real.
After 347 days of anticipation, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors meet once again to decide the NBA Championship.
Game 1 is tonight at The Oracle.
Are you ready?
I’ve reflected quite a bit on these 347 days of the Cavs’ championship reign, the first for any major professional sports team in Cleveland since 1964. We saw a parade down East 9th Street, a visit to The White House, a expletive-filled call for help from LeBron James in January, a 26-point comeback in the playoffs, and…another Eastern Conference Championship.
Cavs fans have run the gamut of emotions in this road back to the Finals. There have been times when LeBron James and company have looked unstoppable. There have also been times when they’ve squandered HUGE leads, played down to the level of their competition, and looked disinterested and bored.
All of that becomes irrelevant starting just after 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time this evening.
