Pulse of the Campus: Finals Picks
February 12, 2016 – 3:31 pm | No Comment

It’s that time of the year again, All-Star weekend is right around the corner. The playoffs should not be too far behind. Now we all know that there are many of us who would love to see LeBron James finally get to the top of the throne with a championship run after losing last year’s finals matchup against the Golden State Warriors. It’s a new  year and the Warriors seem to be running roughshod over the league, having the best record at 45-4. The Eastern Conference isn’t strong to topple King James and the rest of the Cavs crew.  There seems to be plenty of ideas of who can take down the Warriors in a seven game series, the big question is will it be a second or third seed between the San Antonio Spurs and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Or will it be a rematch between the two remaining East and West conference champions of the NBA. Things got a little interesting….


April Cooper- Sophomore- Fine Arts

Who do you think is going to win the NBA finals this year and why?

“Well I’m thinking Golden State cause they shoot the ball pretty good and this year it seems like they are playing better defense.”

Jarodrick Mixon-Sophomore-Health and Human Performance

Who is your favorite team and who do you think will win the NBA finals this year and why?

“Well my favorite team is the Boston Celtics. If I had to pick one team to win the NBA finals it would have to be the Cleveland Cavilers, Lebron is just a talented player and I have to respect him.”

Jasmine Carter-Junior-Health and Human Performance with a minor in Secondary Education

Who do you think is going to win the NBA playoffs and why?

“The Warriors of without a doubt. They are young and healthy and have a lot of weapons. I don’t think anyone can beat them in a seven game series.”


As you can see there are many opinions and many teams to choose from when it comes to championship runs. With the Warriors on fire right now and no signs of slowing down, some or most believe that the all-star break is in their favor. Though many have tried to break the Chicago Bulls single season record of “72-10”, I think we can honestly say that this team’s only intention is to finish strong and hopefully go down in the history books.
