With a little over a week to go before the NBA Finals, the teams who will be crowned the NBA champions have been officially named.

This year’s champion is the Golden State Warriors who are the defending champion and have already secured the first two games of the finals.
They have the greatest home court advantage of any team in the NBA and will be facing the Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs for the final three games.
The Golden State Cavaliers were the most surprising team to come out of the conference finals.
It had a surprisingly strong season, winning the first seven games of their regular season, but lost its first three to the Lakers.
The Cavaliers’ only loss came in the second round, against the Philadelphia 76ers, which was in the last game of the regular season.
However, Cleveland’s first-round series loss to the 76ers came in Game 1 of the NBA finals in Cleveland.
In Game 3, Cleveland beat the Los Angeles Lakers 4-2 in overtime to secure the NBA title.
The Cavs were the second seed in the conference, but were eliminated by the Spurs in the first round.
The Spurs were the defending champions.
They finished the regular-season with the best record in the league, winning 51 games and earning the second-best record in league history.
They were also the first seed in a conference final, and they defeated the Golden States Cavaliers in five games in the finals before falling to the Los Angles Lakers in the championship game.

The MVP for this year’s finals is none other than LeBron James, who scored a career-high 35 points against the Lakers on Sunday.
James, along with Curry, Durant and Westbrook, will lead the way in the MVP race for the Finals, but will need to be at their best in the final five games to secure their rightful place in the Hall of Fame.
