NBA Playoffs 2019: is it still the Warriors’ world?
As all NBA fans know, the league has been the Golden State Warriors’ world since 2015. The team (and its notorious star, Stephen Curry) have made the finals every year since 2015, and won the coveted championship title three out of four times. The Warriors are still the team to beat in the Western Conference, with the Denver Nuggets trailing just behind.
Over on the east coast, the Milwaukee Bucks are the team to beat. In fact, Bucks player Giannis Antetokounmpo might just be the top MVP candidate for the season, rounding out a great year overall for the playoff-bound team. Of course, it’s also been a great year for the Toronto Raptors and the Philadelphia 76ers, with the Sixers entering the playoffs for a second year in a row after a five year drought.
Even if your team didn’t make it to the NBA playoffs, it’s surely going to be an exciting few weeks of matchups leading up to the championship series starting May 30th.
