Thanks to the Golden State Warriors’ 67-15 regular season record, they hold home-court advantage over the Cleveland Cavaliers for this year’s NBA Finals. This is concerning for Cavs guard Iman Shumpert, who recently watched San Andreas, the film based on massive tectonic shifts and ensuing earthquakes that virtually destroy the state of California.
Game 1 in Oakland tips off Thursday night at 9 p.m. EST on ABC. Shump wishes it wasn’t in California, perhaps the only time someone who just experienced a Cleveland winter wants to avoid sunny California.
The Warriors were quick to refuse Shumpert’s suggestion, and he came right back with an emoji-filled warning about the film.
The Finals will be in the 2-2-1-1-1 format, giving both Golden State and Cleveland at least two games at home. Shumpert should probably be more worried about guarding Stephen Curry, a different kind of Cali natural disaster for the Cavs.
