It's looking like the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers may play each other in the upcoming NBA finals... Yet again.

The teams competed the last two years and each has won a championship.

It's a bit of a throwback to the 1980s, when the Lakers and Celtics battled for the title three times.

But this is a new era and people have different viewing tastes. So, if the Warriors and the Cavaliers do meet again, will it be exciting or ho-hum for viewers? 

For that and more from the wide, wide world of sports, the "K2 Brothers," Andy and Brian Kamenetzky joined Take Two's A Martinez. 

Interview Highlight

It would be the first time in NBA history that the same teams met in the finals three straight years. The problem has been the lead up where the Cavs and the Warriors have swept their opening two rounds and have not looked particularly challenged along the way. You want drama, and excitements, and a hard road to presumed glory. It also doesn't help that the playoffs in general have been oddly flat. There have been just a ton of blowout games in the first, and especially, the second rounds. There just hasn't been much excitement. Like last night, the Spurs beat the Rockets in game 5 of their series in a tight contest that went into overtime. I think if we saw more of those games, it would affect the general perception of the playoffs in a positive way.
