A Corgi On TikTok Has Perfectly Predicted Lakers-Warriors

There are few joys in life more satisfying than watching an animal predict sporting events. There are many famous examples of this phenomenon, such as Paul the Psychic Octopus. However, the trend has become more and more common in recent years. During the 2022 NFL playoffs, Cincinnati Zoo utilized their beloved, and internet-famous, hippo Fiona to predict matches.

A major rise in this sort of content has come via the advent of sites such as TikTok. With Tiktok built for mass consumption over brand-building, anyone can go viral for having their pet predict sports matches. With this introduction, meet @aircorg, aka Steph Furry. Steph is a Corgi with 1.3 million followers on TikTok. The account has been using Steph Furry to predict sporting events from around the world for several. But the dog's uncanny prediction for the Lakers-Warriors series is starting to get some attention

Steph Furry Is 5-0 In Wild Lakers-Warriors Series

The Lakers currently lead their Western Conference Semifinals series against the Warriors 3-2.

While not the most difficult series to predict statistically, the order in which it happened is certainly unexpected. Few people would have confidently said the Warriors would be 3-1 down after four games. But those few people include Steph Furry. In a video posted on May 1, the corgi "predicted" the Lakers-Warriors series. The chosen method of Furry's predictions is having a ball thrown at him while he stands at the top of the stairs and knocking it down toward two labeled buckets.

So the only remaining question is - how does the series end, according to Steph Furry? Well Lakers fans, we know you already hate this dog so look away now. Furry has the Warriors going all the way with their comeback. If the good boy's prediction is true, the Warriors are set to take both Games 6 and 7 to win the series 4-3. If they can achieve the feat, they will be just the 14th team to overcome a 3-1 deficit. They will also be the first since the Denver Nuggets did it twice in the 2020 postseason. However, what do you think? Is Steph Furry's prediction correct? Or this corgi barking up the wrong tree?
