NBA Playoff Pressure

Win or Go Home

By: Julio Olmo

The 2019 NBA playoffs have started and the Tour De Force, which the NBA’s Second Season really is will eventually crown a champion in June.

The best-of-seven elimination annual basketball tournament always exposes star players, coaches and entire teams.

It is only a matter keeping your eyes open to see who will fold or rise up to the occasion.

It’s like driving by an accident scene in your car, you just can’t keep your eyes away from the wreck.

Win or Go Home, is not just some catchy phrase.

The pressure is real.
