The trio is back just in time for the 2018 NBA Playoffs.
It’s anyone’s guess who will make it to the conference finals or even further but the crew has some opinions. Bruce is still angry about how his Knicks ended the season, despite beating the Cleveland Cavaliers in their last game with their bench squad. The future looks grim for the Knicks —as it usually does— as no knows where players like Kyle O’Quinn or Enes Kanter will land. The good news is players like Michael Beasley and Trey Burke have become stand out players this season and will hopefully have spots next season.
But when it comes to the Finals, Bruce is going with the Houston Rockets and the Toronto Raptors if they decide to play well in the postseason for once. Beanz is hoping Houston makes it out of the West too, but still has blind loyalty to the Cavs. The Cavs only have four remaining players who were on the championship winning team, and the new guys lack postseason experience. But we forget one thing— playoff LeBron James is an entirely different player and is capable of putting the team on his back to the Finals.
But Beanz knows about the 6’9″ elephant in the room that is Tristan Thompson. GM LeBron reportedly got Thompson that five-year, $82 million and since then he hasn’t been balling out like he used to. And now the whole alleged cheating on Khloe Kardashian thing might throw him off when he needs to be focused the most.
