After last night’s tremendous game 4, the stage is set for Miami to deliver on what they promised less than two years ago - an NBA championship. I don’t want to get ahead of myself or jinx anything but the Heat’s 3-1 series stranglehold on the Thunder gives me great hope. Here’s hoping they close it out at home.
I posted this image not because I detest OKC. They’re easily my second-favourite team right now, after Miami (which has made this Finals extra awesome to watch). They have a great collection of players and fans and I don’t begrudge the city for being awarded a franchise that should have never been moved. But in my heart the Sonics will forever be my favourite team and I still miss them a ton and do hope that they are awarded a franchise sooner than later (I highly recommend this recent article by Jay Caspian Kang about the passionate movement to bring basketball back to Seattle).
That said, BEAT OKC! Go HEAT!
