Grew up in northeast Ohio. Now I don't live there. Go Bucks. My plan is to eventually retire to Youngstown or Cleveland and buy season tickets to all four teams that I love (Cavs, Browns, Indians, Bucks)

I don't mean to advertise for another site, but I thought sharing this was appropriate!

I grew up in Lorain, an old steel mill town 25 minutes away from Cleveland. 

Visiting Cleveland was a treat for us! Most people in northeast Ohio identify as Clevelanders

Cleveland sports are in our DNA. I never lived in Cleveland, yet I am still a Clevelander. The Browns, Indians, and Cavs are what unite the family.

My conversations with my 94 year old grandfather go something like this 

Grandpa: How about them Cavaliers?

Me: They are doing well.

Grandpa: That LeBron James is pretty good.

Me: Indeed.

Burn on Big River!

Golden State wins.

Anything can happen in a Game 7, but history indicates  you should take the home team and the squad that won 73 games.

This is not about Cleveland being cursed because that isn't true, but Golden State having home court and being the better team overall.

With that being said, Bogut being hurt and Golden State having more injuries could tilt the scale

My fiance is a Villanova grad so we have some emotional investment in this game. I actually had Nova-OU in the Final Four. The problem is my other two teams were Sparty-WVU.
