I’ve been saying since the start of the season that the Toronto Raptors are the real deal. Kawhi, not Giannis, has been the best player in the NBA all season. He doesn’t give a shit about stats, accolades, or media attention. He just wants to win games. And he’s one win away from being an NBA champion for the 2nd time in his career. The first time he accomplished that feat, he was on a team that featured legends like Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobli. The Spurs weren’t his team yet. He’s running his own team now, and this Raptors squad is poised to take down a dynasty.
The Golden State Warriors have owned the league since 2015, and they could lose their grasp on it tonight. Despite the fact that KD hasn’t played in the series so far, all the fuckin bum analysts and haters said that the Warriors are actually better without him. Now the same cockamamie douchebags are begging for Durant to come back and save the Warriors. It’s quite hilarious how stupid some people are. Durant should return tonight, so that gives less people the right to say “Kawhi beat the Warriors without KD.”
Tonight is the night where Toronto could win their first ever NBA Finals. Where Kawhi could solidify his case for best player in the world. And they could do it in Toronto. An entire country will be rooting for their team, and 2 entire countries will be rooting against Golden State. Kawhi and the Raptors can handle that pressure. I originally predicted the Warriors would win once again, but I believe I was wrong. Unless Durant can help the Warriors pull off a miracle, Toronto is gonna win. And we won’t see the end of Drake for a while.
