With less than 48 hours to go for the 2015 NBA Finals to tip off, the Ekalavyas crew is back with their final round of predictions. In this NBA on Ekalavyas Podcast #4, Vishnu Ravi Shankar and Himamshu Dabir are joined by repeat guests Kabir Saxena and Pradyut Voleti, as they look back at the Conference Finals, and the possible head to head matchups.
Surprisingly, for once, all four agreed that the Golden State Warriors will win it all. Just to play Devil’s Advocate, I will be rooting all the way for the Cavaliers. It is high time King James marks his return to Cleveland with an NBA title they so desperately yearn for. Learning from his loss to the Spurs last year as a member of the Miami Heat, I feel Lebron realises that the only way NBA titles can be won is through loyalty. That must have played a huge role in his decision to return to his home state.
So who will it be crowned champions this time? Will Stephen Curry’s Golden State team, which finds itself in the NBA finals after 40 years, get title number 2, or will James’s Cavs reverse the heartbreak of 2007 to win their maiden rings?
