The Golden State Warriors are headed to their fifth-straight NBA finals after dispatching the Portland Trail Blazers in just four games in the Western Conference Finals.
For the first time during this incredible run, Golden State won’t see a familiar face waiting for them: LeBron James.
After LeBron took his talents to the Los Angeles Lakers, that opened the door for another Eastern Conference team to make the Finals. Milwaukee and Toronto are in a tight battle for the right to play the Warriors – with the Raptors holding a 3-2 series lead.
So how do the Warriors feel about not playing LeBron in the Finals this year?
Draymond Green said it’s a “mindf***.”
Here are his full comments via Bleacher Report:
“It’s just weird. More as a basketball fan than anything: ‘Damn, Bron not there.’ It’s super weird. You always relish the opportunity to play against a talent like that.
It’s just weird to look over there to know that you’re going to play someone completely different,” Green said. “It’s kind of a mindf***.”
Green and the Warriors will face an unfamiliar opponent when the NBA Finals kicks off on May 30.
Who they’ll face remains to be seen. Toronto and Milwaukee are set for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday night.
