Game seven of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks. According to Kevin Garnett, the winner of the game is the likely favorite to win the NBA Finals.
The Bucks are the favorites to win game seven at 46 percent per FiveThirtyEight due to James Harden is not being 100 percent and Kyrie Irving being out with an ankle injury. Despite the circumstances, many feel that Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kevin Durant’s legacy are on the line.
“As I’ve said all year long, we’re built for this moment, simple as that,” Antetokounmpo said after scoring 30 points with 17 rebounds in the Bucks’ 104-89 Game 6 win. “And nobody says [it’s] going to be easy. Might be hard, but we are capable of doing [it].”
“It’s cool to compete against the best at this stage, this part of the season,” Durant said. “It’s always fun challenging yourself against some of the best. These battles have made me a better player, raised my awareness out there on the court by playing against such great teams and also great players and coaches. So it’s another opportunity to just go out there and enjoy the moment. Every moment out there you get to play is incredible. So when you’re out there with the best players in the world, MVPs and Defensive Players of the Year, it just makes it even better.”
However, If you were to ask Snowfall actor Amin Joseph, it would be no competition from Durant or Giannis if LeBron James faced off against them.
“LeBron James would of beat both these dumb*****. The King would have beat both of them.”
LeBron was not able to beat the Suns in the first round this year in the Western Conference. So what is Joseph talking about?
He would explain, “I’m not talking about 36 year old King James, I’m talking about The King of the East. The Beast of the East. Right now, we are talking about a two time MVP in Giannis has a loaded squad is a match for Kevin Durant by himself. And we are talking about Durant, who, had to link up with Steph to try to beat LeBron,” said Joseph.
“Now, I need KD and us to put on our big boy britches on and I need either KD or Giannis to win the whole thing. If either one of them does not win the whole thing, then we need to stop comparing them to Lebron James.”
The Nets and Bucks game seven will be on TNT at 8:30 pm EST.
