Extended Rest for Golden State and Cleveland?

 

There’s no doubt that Golden State and the Cavaliers will be the two teams in this years NBA Finals. The only dilemma is whether Durant’s injury becomes an insurmountable obstacle that prevents the Warriors from winning the Championship. There is an argument that Cleveland is the unstoppable team and with the additions of Kyle Korver and Andrew Bogut the Cavaliers have a strong bench to support Lebron, Kyrie and Love. If both teams are healthy this will be the greatest Finals in NBA history. I think we’re at an appropriate place where both teams can start resting their stars for extended periods. Both teams could lose a lot of games and still make the playoffs. Who cares what seed they place at. No team in their conference can beat them, so rest your stars and give the bench more play time in real games to get them ready for the finals.
