|On Sunday night Chaussures Homme Nike Vapormax Flyknit 2018 Blanche Pas Cher , the -Cleveland Cavaliers made quite a few grumpy old men very happy by beating the Golden State -Warriors 93-89 to win the NBA title.
Why the mood change? Because the Warriors' loss -allegedly reinforced the notion that their style of basketball - perimeter-oriented, jump-shot based - wasn't "real" basketball. That in eras gone by, they couldn't have succeeded. The Cavaliers' win proved that millennial basketball was inferior to "old-school" basketball, -returning a sense of normalcy to the basketball universe.
Which is pure nonsense. Yes, the Warriors were more of a perimeter-oriented team than most championship teams of the past half-century. And all that style allowed them to do was a) capture the regular -season record for wins, b) advance to two consecutive NBA Finals Chaussures Homme Nike Vapormax Flyknit 2018 Rouge Pas Cher , c) win the first of those Finals fairly handily and d) come within five points of -winning the second one.
Similarly ridiculous is the notion that there has always been one definitive way to win an NBA championship in the modern era. The "Showtime" Los Angeles Lakers dominated the 1980s by fast-breaking their opponents into oxygen-deprived submission. Success in the 90s belonged to both the thuggish Detroit Pistons and the precision-based, superstar-driven Chicago Bulls.
Since then, the San Antonio Spurs have won five titles with a fluctuating roster and a -variety of different playing styles. Like life, professional sports tend to be constantly evolving, so next year's champions might very well look different from this year's champions, who looked different than the previous year's champions Ö and so on.
The Warriors didn't lose this year's Finals because they were a jump-shooting team or because basketball was -inherently back when their dads or -grandpas were watching it. They lost because -LeBron James played like a man -possessed and led his team back from a 3-1 -deficit. That feat had never been -accomplished -before Chaussures Homme Nike Vapormax Bleu Noir Pas Cher , which proves that once in a while, the NBA present can be measured against its past.
