The Finals may be over but they deserve to be relived just one more time!

What a crazy Finals, I think I can speak for the whole Courtside Convo team and say that this years Finals was one to remember. The history that was made and not made all the way to the many storylines that were built going into the series and during the series.

Take a trip back through the Finals with some great pictures and recap info with this months issue and get ready for a great offseason.

Storylines: The 2016 NBA Finals

 

I’ve said it before in this series and I’ll say it again – WHAT. A. GAME.

This was everything we heard as we kept getting deeper into this series as questions kept on pushing the narrative that one team needs to step up and make this thing competitive.

Well, on the last day of the NBA season with everything on the line we, the fans of the NBA, were gifted a Game 7. But not just any Game 7, this was unlike anything that would ever be witnessed – and it was all thanks to storylines.

So with everything this game burdened as the 48th minute buzzer drowned out Oracle it’s only right we should break this down from the top.

So here we are. After a playoffs full of the best drama that only sports can offer we arrive at a Game 7 in the NBA Finals.

It’s crazy to go back and think of the narrative that was beginning to be written at the start of this NBA season mainly involving the leagues 2 biggest superstars. LeBron and Curry have been deathmatched against each other all season and yet we should now realise that none of it matters now and none of mattered prior to April.

As we finally approach the final game here is storied review of the series so far.

For weeks now we’ve heard LeBron this and LeBron that, but in those last few weeks something that this LeBron is doing has changed and its almost perfect timing as the Cavaliers gear up for a playoff run.

For LeBron however, at this point in his career he has shown that even with all the talks about him being out-shined by the Warriors and Steph Curry, he still manages to fool everyone (at least the media) into thinking he’s regressed and borderline done.
