Did anybody else watch that game last night thinking "THE PHOENIX SUNS AND THE MILWAUKEE BUCKS ARE PLAYING EACH OTHER IN THE NBA FINALS!!!!" in the back of their mind the entire time? I feel like not enough is being made about this. This is like if the Vikings and the Jets played each other in the Super Bowl.

I watched soccer instead. And I'm an NBA guy, as you know.

I'm a Suns fan, and I've been "Holy crap, the Suns are in the NBA Finals" for the past few days now. The last time, I was 7 and Jon Paxson ruined my vacation in Disney World. 

 

Oddly enough, I'm going to Anaheim in a month and am planning on checking out Disneyland for a day. Hopefully there's a different ending this year.

I was also 7 watching Paxson sink that shot, though I was on the other side of the coin. Now that I'm older, it would've been nice to give one of those rings to Phoenix and Portland during that time.

A friend of mine who is a Bucks fan, wanted to bet me a beer chug that the Bucks were gonna take this series since I said the fightin' Chris Pauls looked like a team of destiny. I already did one when I promised I would if the Bucs won the SB, but I declined because I wanted to see his team pull it out. Now I'm kinda wishing I had taken him up on it just to see him enjoy it.

Giannis is unreal. Straight up unbelievable. What he did in these last two games is absolutely incredible. Back to back Finals games with 40 points and 10+ boards. Only Shaq has done it before. 
 

He’s showing everyone why he’s a top 5 player.

Plus I'm pretty sure his knee isn't 100% to put this Finals performance on a even higher pedestal, but definitely a complete effort from the whole team and exactly what was needed by the Bucks to bounce back.

This is the first sports final in years where I legitimately want both teams to win. Either a modern legend of the game finally gets a ring after years of excellence or a bright young star silences his already-a-bit-too-loud critics. And the teams themselves are evenly matched as well. This is very refreshing.

Team USA 0-2 in exhibitions.

 

That's cool.

I watched most of the 4th quarter against Australia last night. Man, they looked bad.

I've only seen highlights and clips on twitter, but it is absolutely hilarious to see the US players trying to draw fouls and flop as they would in the NBA only to get absolute silence from the FIBA officials. It's like they forgot how to play real basketball. The NBA could learn a thing or two from how FIBA officiates their games.

Nobody looks less like a coach than the Bucks' coach.

 

I made the joke that he looks like a divorced dad that they plucked off a bar stool at Goolsby's.
