The Golden State Warriors will meet the Trail Blazers in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals on Tuesday night in Oakland and there’s a bunch of anticipation leading up to the series.
The two-time defending NBA champs are chasing a three-peat, looking to become the first team to secure three consecutive championship titles since the Los Angeles Lakers in 2002.
Siblings Steph and Seth Curry will matchup against each other for the first time in a playoff series. It’s also the first time a set of brothers have faced off in a conference final.
Their parents Sonya and Dell Curry have already devised a plan to decide which son to cheer for.
ESPN’s Rachel Nichols says they’ll simply flip a coin.
Seth & Steph Curry will be the first brothers to ever play each other in an NBA conference finals. Sonya & Dell Curry told me their plan is to literally flip a coin to split which kid to root for/which parent wears which team’s gear. — Rachel Nichols (@Rachel__Nichols) May 12, 2019
This series hits home, literally, for Portland’s Damian Lillard who was born and raised in East Oakland and grew up a Warriors fan.
Lillard reps Oakland often and selected the No. 0 or “The Letter O,” uniform number to pay homage to one of the cities that shaped his basketball career.
Lillard and the Blazers are playing in the last West Conference Finals in Oakland before the Warriors move to San Francisco.
One thing for certain, Oakland has a whole lot to cheer about.
