NBA Final : Raptors vs. Warriors
Charles Barkley think we can do it since we did it TWICE in regular season.

TORONTO — James Lackey's students at Brampton Christian School will have to forgive him for cheering on Golden State this week as the Toronto Raptors open up the NBA Finals against the Warriors. After all, he's just rooting for one of his former students.
Lackey was a teacher and the boys' basketball coach at Queensway Christian College in 2001 when Stephen Curry, the son of then-Raptors shooting guard Dell Curry, started attending the school. The young Curry led Queensway in scoring more than a decade before becoming a two-time NBA MVP and the central figure in Golden State's five-year dynasty that includes three league titles.
Oh, I remember it like it was yesterday. It's a once in a lifetime moment. The school secretary called down to the phys-ed office and she said, "You have to come down right away. Dell Curry is here and he's enrolling his children in the school."
We were such a tiny little school. I couldn't believe that someone like Dell Curry would choose our school to put his kids in.
I ran down to the gym office and got to meet Dell and got to meet Stephen for the first time.
