Stephen A. Smith criticizes the often-injured Kawhi Leonard. Screen grab: ‘First Take’

The 2024 NBA Finals are all set. The Dallas Mavericks will face the Boston Celtics starting next week in Boston to begin the series.

The series will pit Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving vs Jason Tatum and the Celtics, it should be an interesting and exciting series but according to Stephen A. Smith, this may be the best finals ever.

“These finals, ladies and gentlemen, brace yourself! … This is gonna be special.”

The Celtics are coming off a sweep of the Indiana Pacers, and many think their road to the NBA Finals has been a lot easier than the Mavericks’. While the Celtics had to face the Pacers, who were a lower seed, the Mavs had to face the two best teams in the Western Conference, the Minnesota Timberwolves and Denver Nuggets.

But like the Celtics, the Mavs dominated the Nuggets, especially the Timberwolves, and some NBA experts feel the Mavs may have an advantage over Boston because they may be more battle-tested.

Stephen A. saying this might be the best finals ever has a few NBA fans questioning his comments.

These NBA Finals will have a lot to live up to, considering the past finals involving the Celtics, who have been in several memorable NBA Finals.

We will see if it lives up to the hype.
