The Washington Wizards are a really good team. They have a formidable backcourt with John Wall and Bradley Beal and they have a veteran frontcourt presence in Nene and a veteran ball player in Paul Pierce. In the West, the Golden State Warriors have raced out to a 13-2 record because of Steve Kerr’s theme in basketball. Kerr has made the Warriors better without David Lee and they don’t miss Lee’s presence out there. Draymond Green is the Warriors’ energy guy. He gives out defensive assignments and gets those rebounds. The Warriors don’t miss out on Green shooting the lights out of the gym, because he can shoot from the three-pointer when given the green light.
A big hopeful for this season are the Cleveland Cavaliers. They won big today against Atlanta and I am looking to strap my boots on because I think the Toronto Raptors should be all over the basketball world news, because Kyle Lowry helped put Canada on the map with his floor leadership and clutch shooting. My picks for the Eastern Conference Finals are the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Toronto Raptors.
