Wake Up!

Hey did you know the NBA Finals start tonight? You probably forgot because the NBA hasn’t had a game in over a week. Thanks to a sweep and a 4-1 result, the Conference Finals ended on last Wednesday and we have been waiting for basketball to reappear since then.

I don’t really understand the delay. Why couldn’t the Finals have started Sunday? Or Monday? Or even Tuesday? (Wednesday was taken by the Stanley Cup, so I get that) Tuesday would have been an optimal date as they could have played Game 1 then, Game 2 tonight and Game 3 Sunday. (TV networks avoid Saturday night like the plague) The NBA released some sketchy statement about the impossibility of travel and hotel rooms.

It’s too bad because this is a compelling matchup. The Warriors with their magnificent team and great shooter versus LeBron trying to win Cleveland a championship for the first time in fifty-plus years. In fact, this matchup guarantees that we will have a tenth club join the list of NBA teams that have won a title since 1979. I’m excited, let’s get to it, but why did it take so damn long?
