In the 2015 NBA Finals, two of the league’s best teams, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors, will face off. In addition, two of the sport’s most prominent stars, Golden State’s Stephen Curry and Cleveland’s LeBron James, will attempt to lead their respective teams to championships. As the series tips off, two of our writers chose to focus on different aspects of this year’s Finals.
Bay Area native Kara Avanceña (COL ’17) reflects on the rise of the Warriors, a team that was largely overlooked prior to this season, and believes that the team will earn the NBA Championship.
Madeline Auerbach (COL ’17) understands that the Warriors have a talented team, but still believes that Cleveland has an equal chance to take this series.
