MANILA, Philippines – After a long week of waiting, the NBA Finals is finally here.
For the 3rd straight year, the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers will battle it out for a chance to dominate the league once more and be crowned the 2017 NBA Champions.
The Cavaliers are looking to defend the crown this year after dominating the East, only dropping one game against the Boston Celtics in the Conference Finals.
The Warriors, on the other hand, swept their way through the playoff – being the first team in NBA history to accomplish a 12-0 record.
