Playing in the NBA Finals is an incredible achievement, not only because of excellence, but also because of endurance. The season starts in mid-October and match 7 was to be played on June 19. Players need a minimum of 98 professional basketball games for eightmonth to play in the NBA Finals, more than 105 more than likely.
The odyssey to get to this Larry O’Brien trophy is part of what makes the NBA playoffs so much fun. Staying on the running field for six games on the playground in the summer is enough taxation to give a 15-year-old horse Charlie. Playing with NBA playoff intensity every other night for two months and changing, all due respect to everyone at the Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics. Even for people who follow and / or cover the league, once the trophy is presented, it’s time to take a deep breath, the whole body.
However, without the players struggling from exhaustion to make spectacular performances, it would not be worth watching. The bad knees, ankles and backs that these players struggle to score 20 points in June are as good as the sport. While basketball is a team sport, the players who have risen to the occasion in this series – whether their team wins or loses – deserve recognition. So let’s show a little love for the best players in the NBA Finals.
