The NBA Finals are finally here and we are excited for the trilogy everyone has been waiting for, Cavs and Warriors.
Our first daily tip is LeBron James over 8.5 rebounds. James has been spectacular this entire offseason, igniting the conversation amongst many pundits of who is the greatest of all time between him and Michael Jordan.
James has a history of stepping it up statistically in the Finals and nowhere is that more apparent than his rebounding numbers. LeBron crashes the boards so hard that he has cleared 10 in 12/15 finals games and never had fewer than 8 in that stretch. In the last two Finals against these Warriors, James averaged 13.3 and 11.3rpg respectively. Load up.
