Kobe Bryant hasn’t really been watching much of the NBA playoffs so far, aside from offering some assistance in film review for Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas, but he plans to watch at some point when his schedule allows. You would anticipate that Bryant will at least tune in for the NBA Finals, which seems destined to be the grudge match between the Cavs and Warriors, who have split the last two Finals.
There appears to be a clear separation between those two teams and the rest of the league, as evidenced by both teams sweeping their first and second round series. There are some that feel the inevitability of a Cavs-Warriors matchup in the Finals for the third straight year is bad for basketball, because it takes away from the drama of the first three rounds of the playoffs.
However, Kobe doesn’t understand what all the fuss is about, as he told ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan.
