Well as the NBA season comes down the final stretch of the season. A number of teams with playoff ambitions are aligning themselves and jockeying for positions that’d be favorable in terms of the seeding.
In the Eastern Conference it’s all but a certainty that the Cleveland Cavaliers (62-15) will be the overall number one seed. And it’s a deserving mantel to have for what can be best described as an outstanding season. Having already surpassed the 60 win threshold for the season . The team is further looking to cement its status as the league’s best team in terms of the overall win total and number one seeding throughout the playoffs.
That being said in the Western Conference the Los Angeles Lakers (62-16) are loking to make something of a late run and perhaps derail the Cavaliers’ hopes. Well that’s unless divine intervention from up on high . I think it’s pretty safe to say that’s not going to happen at this juncture. And as much as those in the West would very much like to see this happen . It’s somewhat safe to say there are those who’d rather see someone else seated atop of the hill.
Which now brings me to my next point. As a long avid San Antonio Spurs’ (50-27) fan. I for one felt that this season there might’ve been a chance of at least of gaining revenge against our conference rivals in the Los Angeles Lakers. Well at least I thought it was going to be that way. Much of the season it has been something of a turnstile of players being injured and re-injuring themselves. Wherein there was never any real continuity , fluidity or cohesiveness as to the team’s play. And that has led to a great deal of inconsistency despite them once again obtaining a 50 win season thus far. Suffice to say it’s been other another remarkable coaching job done by Gregg Popovich. Even if the carousel ride itself at times has flirted with disaster. And the milestones he’s achieved the man still remains almost unflappable. He’s won four NBA titles as a coach and this season became one of a handful of coaches to have attained 1,000 regular season wins. Joining a select few and most certainly he’ll one day be enshrined in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame .
