The NBA Finals are here, and over the coming weeks we will be watching as the Golden State Warriors look to cap off the greatest season in NBA history as they take on the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second straight year.
This isn’t just a battle between the two best teams in the league this season, it’s also a battle between two of the biggest names in Australian basketball.
Andrew Bogut and Matthew Dellavedova.
Before Game 1 of the Finals kicked off in Oracle Arena, we had a chat to some fans to find out who they thought would win the fight, and what they think of both players. Surprisingly, there is lot of love for Dellavedova in Oakland still due to his days as a fan favorite while playing college basketball at St. Mary’s before entering the NBA.
No matter who walks away as the NBA champions this season, another Aussie will have a championship ring, and that’s a great thing for Australian basketball.
The NBA Finals continue with Game 2 this Sunday at Oracle Arena.
