With the NBA’s version of the Final Four officially underway, I spoke with twitter personality @RaysFanGio to preview all the action! One of the most passionate Cleveland sports fans on social media, Gio and I break down the upcoming Eastern Conference Finals series between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Atlanta Hawks.

During the NBA playoffs, the Cavs have dealt with injuries to key players like Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love. Gio weighs in on how these injury problems will affect his Cavs moving forward. With the most wins in the eastern conference during the regular season, Atlanta is a more well balanced team than Cleveland. That being said, can Cleveland’s LeBron James be expected to beat the Hawks all by himself?

We also preview the Western Conference Finals match up between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets. Can the Rockets continue to depend on the hot hands of Josh Smith and Corey Brewer? Or will the Splash Brothers of Golden State be able to weather the storm? Gio and I discuss the key factors that will determine the winner of this series.

Also on this podcast, we take a look back at the recent playoff collapse by the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers squandered a 3-1 series lead over the Houston Rockets and lost the next three games in a stunning playoff exit. As a Cleveland sports fan, Gio has seen his fair share of chokes in his sports lifetime. As for myself, I was an avid New York Knicks fan in the 1990’s, so I too have seen a great deal of playoff chokes. That being the case, Gio and I debate whether or not the Los Angeles Clippers’ choke job was the biggest collapse in NBA playoff history.
