Season 7 Finals Predictions – From Around the Community:
‘I like both teams going into this one. When we lost to Thunder Saffi and Ennis combined for 40 plus to beat us. They must do the same against GFs. Playing GF is a war - Enis must battle both Andrei and Mujahid inside and it took me two weeks to recover from that battle. Thunder must find a way for second chance opportunities. Overall ever since that win over GFs they adjusted and are unstoppable. In my opinion, unless Saffi and Enis scores 40 plus combined they won’t win. I predict GFs 57, Thunder 51.’ – Devaughn, Team Autobots
‘Goodfellas are my pick to win. They play hard defense and have each other’s back. Thunder argues with each other too much. – Maaz, Team Fab 5
‘Preseason no one would have thought these two would be here fighting for the elusive CBL30 trophy. A tale of two vastly different teams with execution on defense being imperative, GF have the size but the Thunders offense has become a well-oiled machine right on time. Thunder will win 48-42. – Hamdy, Team Fab 5
Good fellas ... They're solid team all around defensively with mujahid, randy, arvin and Andre. They grind out to the finish and are tough team. -- Omar, Chargers
Goodfellas, Andrei, Arvin, Randy, mujahid, mentally strong 4, on the other side saffi Ennis and Sajed have to play championship style basketball, no room for error GF 50- Thunder 46. - Shafiq, Bandits
Thunder wins. Too many offensive options and a steady game plan make them a difficult opponent for anyone. -- Ali Ladak, MasterMinds
The thunder four horsemen will carry them to a win. -- Mamoon, Bandits
Goodfellas will win because they have more muscle and aggressiveness. My prediction is Goodfellas by eight also because they will have a great coach. -Kamil, Primetime
Thunder because i started that team. - Shafi, Original Captain of Team Thunder
Good fellas 57 Thunder 49 ... Good fellas are meshing at the right time. They have good guards and defensive minded bigs ... Good fellas will win -- Munir, Reigning Mvp, Decepticons
I think good fellas they look too strong right now. -Saher, Autobots
I believe Good Fellas will be the victor of the CBL 30 Finals, as they have been gaining momentum going into the finals. Good Fellas have a good attitude and play with a lot of enthusiasm and intensity as of late. If they continue to play together, physical and encourage each other during the game they should be 2015 Champs. However, it will not be easy as Saffi, Ennis, gunner Nadib have been playing clutch ball. But I am sure Sajed will keep his head in the game and execute offensively down the stretch. But I like Thunder. – Jean, Masterminds.
GoodFellas will win a close battle. Their ability to dominate in the paint is difficult to overcome. – Shani, Decepticons.
‘Thunder brothers are good players. They will win. – Junior, Team Fab 5
How did Thunder make it? Lol. If I was a betting man, I would say GoodFellas. -Darwin, Autobots
GFs are bigger than Thunder. Thunder doesn’t have rebounders; therefore GFs will win – Mike, TWSS
Good Fellas will win. Only because they are too strong inside. Thunder has match-up nightmares. If Thunder wants to have any chance to win they can’t panic from the heavy assault GFs will bring in the 1st half. If Thunder survives that, then you can see an upset. Sajed must find a plan to defuse Muhajid and let him talk smack. Good luck fellas and May the best team win. -Pops, Masterminds.
GFs too physical. Too big. Too fast. Great rebounding team. If Thunder can box out, they have a chance. But I’d say GoodFellas. -Nick, Autobots, Season 6 Finals MVP
Thunder all the way as captain Sajed gets his first taste of the Crescent Cup. - Abdullah, Original Organizer, CBL
I think GFs will win because they are more physical than Thunder. They have a game changer in Bollywood who could light it up. Goodfellas all the way! -- Sammy, CBL 30 2 time champ, Bandits
I think GFs. Both teams play with a lot of heart and charisma. But I think GFs are really hot right now and that will be the difference. I do expect a close game. -- Khalil, MasterMinds
Thunder will win. Since day one they had the most balance squad in the league. They have the outside shooting of Nadib, inside play of Ennis and the individual scoring of Saffi. They have had a 10 point lead on every team in the league this season. They just have to be able to finish. – Juan, Bandits
Thunder because any team that goes through TWSS deserves a chip. (:. – Randy. TWSS
Love the match-up as both teams were not expected to get this far. I think Thunder prevails in a nail biter. -- Razi, Chargers
Thunder will win because as a Charger we came against them after being down 20. Should be a great game to the last posession. -- Mussaib, Primetime
I like Thunder. – Faisal, Decepticons.
Congratulations to both teams in getting to the finals. That is a huge accomplishment in itself as there are so many obstacles such as schedule, injuries, questionable calls, etc. that affect a team’s chances. I like both teams as I have seen these bros since 2006. At the end I think GFs have too much balance and firepower to overcome. Final Score, GFs 62, Thunder 57. – Farooq, TWSS
Thunder will pull it off. – Yasar, Fab 5
I like GFs because I will be playing. – Andrei, GFs.
Sajed and Mujahid are two CBL originals, and both good friends, hate to pick one but you always wanna say you lost to the eventual Champs! So Thunder go get it!!! – Waqas. TWSS
