While in the Eastern Conference the Cleveland Cavaliers is the favorite team to reach the NBA Finals, as no other team in the east that many sports analysts think that could beat the Cavaliers.

The Cavs eventually won the East Finals to face for the 2nd straight year the GSW in NBA Finals.
And now the upcoming season is predicting that the East could be another finals appearance for the Cavaliers while the West the heavy favored Golden State Warriors with an NBA superstar’s addition of Kevin Durant is the favorite to win the west.
If the prediction will come true? The Cavs and GSW Finals match will be the 3rd consecutive Finals match the first trilogy NBA Finals in NBA History.
Meanwhile, for the MVP discussion this upcoming NBA Regular Season there are already prediction that Cavs Superstar LeBron James, has a very good chance of winning his 5th NBA Regular Season MVP?
Why? Because the new Warriors addition and top MVP caliber 1 time MVP Kevin Durant and the reigning two time MVP Stephen Curry, might decrease their offense? As they will share the offense of their team? That could be a great disadvantage for Curry, who is eyeing for his 3rd consecutive MVP and a great advantage for LeBron James, who is always been a top contender every season for the NBA Most Valuable Player.
