Celtics PF Brandon Bass: Why Cavs will win NBA Finals
Thursday June 4th, 2015

Boston Celtics forward Brandon Bass predicted Thursday on SI Now that Cleveland will win the 2015 NBA Finals in six games over Golden State.  

It's worth noting that Bass has had more exposure to the Cavaliers than the Warriors in 2014-15, having played Cleveland eight times, as well as that the Cavaliers swept Bass' Celtics in four games in the opening round of the NBA playoffs in April.

Bass also noted in his interview that he believed Michael Jordan, and not LeBron James, is the best NBA player of all time. 

The NBA Finals start Thursday in Oakland, Calif, at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
