After a clean, but physical contest in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night, which the Golden State Warriors won 113-91 to take a 1-0 lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers, and due to the history between the two teams, there has been plenty of talk about physicality leading up to Game 2 on Sunday night.
Tristan Thompson has joined in with another memorable quote. When asked about how he expects Game 2 to go, Thompson said, "It's going to be a wrestling match. It's going to be a wrestling match, like WWE down there."and now

OK, so I'm pretty sure Thompson was just trying to say there will be a lot of contact, but a real WWE match between these two teams actually sounds awesome.
I don't know about you, but those sound pretty fun to me. I mean, Karl Malone wrestled Dennis Rodman in WCW back in the day, so it's not totally crazy to imagine.
