One ESPN NBA Analyst Picks Warriors to Beat Clippers in West Finals

If you're a Warriors fan and don't love NBA analyst Kirk Goldsberry, that is about to change.

On Tuesday morning, ESPN released predictions for the season and Mr. Goldsberry is the only staffer picking the Dubs to advance to the NBA Finals.

The former VP of strategic research for the San Antonio Spurs has Golden State defeating the Clippers in the Western Conference Finals.

So he must have the Warriors winning the title, right? Wrong. Goldsberry picked the Bucks to bring home the hardware.

At the very least, he had to have picked Steph Curry to win MVP, or Draymond to be Defensive Player of the Year, or Steve Kerr as Coach of the Year, right?

Nope, nope and nope again.

Goldsberry chose Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo as MVP, Utah's Rudy Gobert as DPOY and Miami's Erik Spolestra as top coach.

Quick tangent -- if you haven't read Goldsberry's book "Sprawlball," go get yourself a copy. It's fantastic.
