The results of the NBA's general manager survey are in, and in a result that will surprise nobody, they have predicted that the Golden State Warriors will meet the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2017 finals.
Everybody is expecting a third consecutive instalment of the matchup, with the Warriors and Cavaliers the standout teams from each conference.
2015 saw Stephen Curry and his teammates overcome LeBron James and a depleted Cleveland roster while 12 months later the 'King' got his revenge as the Wine and Gold came back from 3-1 down.
After acquiring Kevin Durant in free agency, the Dubs are favourites, and that has been confirmed in the GM survey with 69 percent of them tipping the Western Conference organisation to come out on top.
The new campaign is yet to start, but it is hard to look past the Warriors. They have two MVPs and four 2016 All-Stars at their disposal, as well as a former finals MVP on their bench.
However, Cleveland proved last season that games aren't won on paper, and it would not be beyond the realms of belief for LeBron to come out on top once again.
It may be repetitive, but nobody is sick of Cleveland vs. Golden State.
