Cleveland Cavaliers star Iman Shumpert has jokingly suggested that he wishes his team didn’t have to travel to San Francisco for the NBA Finals 2015.

Shumpert took to Twitter on Monday after he had watched ‘San Andreas’, the new blockbuster movie starring The Rock aka Dwyane Johnson, and asked if the series could switch to Cleveland instead.
Having put together the better record, the Warriors will have home-court advantage in the Finals with the first two games being played at a raucous Oracle Arena in Oakland.
However, that has seemingly scared Shumpert who also slipped in a suggestion that the Cavs could get the job done in four games and sweep their rivals, although it wasn’t necessarily a dig as he may have just been overwhelmed by the anxiousness of travelling to the Bay Area.
. @warriors i kno yall got home court advantage but after watching San Andreas wit wifey…can we play all 4 in CLE cuz i aint got time for that

While the Rock also got involved in the exchange with a joke or two of his own, the Warriors arguably had the best comeback and reassured Shumpert that they were good where they are and will be ready for the Finals to get underway on Thursday night.
