As the NBA Finals are approaching many are looking forward to the rematch between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. This year would mark the third year in a row the Cavaliers and the Warriors would go head to head on the biggest stage in the NBA. However, this year’s NBA Finals is different than the previous two years. With the addition of Kevin Durant to the Warriors, Durant has transformed the Warriors into a super team. The Cavaliers have also made some adjustments to their roster, making the addition of Kyle Korver and Deron William, two NBA veterans. As the NBA Finals draw near many are wondering who has the more pressure to win the championship, Stephen Curry or Lebron James.

Sports analysts, Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman made compelling arguments as to why they believe either Curry or James has more pressure to reign victorious in the NBA Finals. Smith argues that Curry has more pressure, because he was the back to back NBA MVP for the 2015-2016 and the 2016-2017 NBA regular season. Smith also argues that if Curry and the Warriors do not win the NBA Finals that it will leave a blemish on Curry’s record for the rest of his career due to the fact that the Warriors have a super team. On the other hand, Max Kellerman argues that while Lebron James has less to lose he in turn has more to gain if he and the Cavaliers win the NBA Finals. Kellerman argues that if Lebron is successful in leading his team to victory, there will be a stronger argument to make that James is better than Michael Jordan if he beats a super team. With the NBA Finals beginning on June 1st, it should be interesting to see which team comes out victorious.
