For the first time in forever, the NBA Finals featured rosters without anyone named LeBron James or Steph Curry. It was a refreshing sight for basketball fans, and the last couple of games in the series were not for the feint of heart.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was named Finals MVP, delivered a performance for the ages and a historic series. And now, the Larry O'Brien trophy is in Milwaukee, much to the delight of some 65,000 fans in attendance in the Deer district. If you're a stathead like me, Read More
This NBA Finals is truly a breathe of fresh air, and we fans can tell from the competitive outings in the last four games.
