To kick off the 2017 NBA playoffs, we debuted our first ever podcast to preview the Cleveland Cavaliers upcoming run at repeating as champions.
We first discuss the upcoming series with the Indiana Pacers and how the Cavs will fare in their first round matchup. There are some obstacles that the Cavs will face not only in the first round but also throughout the entire postseason. Simon and I also talk about the Cavs defensive struggles that face the team as a whole and point out some individuals who will need to step up if the Cavs want to win a second consecutive championship.
It is hard to tell how the playoffs will shake out in the Eastern Conference, but we give our predictions on who we believe will be in the Cavs path in the conference semifinals and conference finals. This year the East is definitely better despite what some might say and a matchup against the Raptors, Bucks, Celtics or Wizards could prove to be a tough challenge for the wine and gold.
To wrap up the podcast we both give our predictions on who will win the most valuable player award. It was an incredible year for players like Russell Westbrook and James Harden and the MVP race is up for grabs. So give our first ever Cavs365 podcast a listen, it surely won’t disappoint!
