NBA Finals - Game 1 Tonight 9pm ET - ABC HD

finals.jpg

Coverage starts at 8:30 ET on ABC. It's the Cleveland Cavaliers vs. San Antonio Spurs. Best of 7 series.

First two games are in San An, then 3 games played at Cleveland, then the remaining 2 games are played in San An if they're necessary.

San Antonio is favored to win the series and pretty much all of the Cavs' hopes rest on the shoulders of 22 year old LeBron James who is expecting his 2nd child in a few days.

If you want my opinion San An is pretty much playing in the finals because they played dirty against the Phoenix Suns in the playoffs and because of a flagrant foul by the Spurs, 2 of the Suns' best players were suspended from playing in a crucial upcoming game against the Spurs because they jumped off the bench to help Steve Nash that was hit with the flagrant foul by San An.

The Cavs are in the finals because they beat the Detroit Pistons in the Conference finals. Pistons won the first two games by a small margin, then the Cavs answered with 4 straight wins. The most notable was Game 5 win by the Cavs in Detroit where LeBron James scored 48 points, 29 of them coming in the 4th quarter and the 2 overtimes the game was taken into.

So that's that, and it starts tonight. The Cavs beat the Spurs in both of their meetings in the regular season this year but most people aren't really considering that enough to say the Cavs will win but I guess we'll see.

I'm headin' up to the bar in a little while to watch this, can't wait.

Here's what the Cavs are using as their inspiration for the series. This is LeBron's monster dunk over Tim Duncan earlier this year

    I am not sir. I used to be in a hip hop company with her like 5 years ago, saw her at this after hours restaurant last Thursday after my Band's gig, and we've hooked it up every night since.

    I like the fact that nobody mentions that the Spurs had already beat the Suns twice before that flagrant.

    Spurs in 5, with LeBron busting out for a few big games, but the Spurs containing the Cavs as a team.

    Lebron seems to be a cool dude.

    I stopped watching the NBA, 'cause it really seemed to be full of nothing but thugs for a while there.

    2 games doesn't mean anything. Losing Amare and Diaw means everything.

    Robert Horry basically handed the Spurs the NBA Championship with that hip-check he threw.

    Basically.

    I wanted Nash to get a championship so bad this year. I still think he deserved another Season MVP award but that's not to belittle anything Dirk did, Dirk had a great year.

    ... Can you guarantee this? Surely she has friends that still dance there... I'm kidding.

    I just want to fucking meet T-Mac.

    and wouldn't mind hooking up with a Houston dancer either.

    funny thing is, most of the chicks she dances with are long time friends of mine from back when i used to be a b-boy for Planet Funk (a hip hop dance company here) and are single....so i mean assuming you were gonna be here and i came to find you aren't a complete douche, i could put in a good word. Actually come to think of it, one of my clients at work is Rockets player Shane Battier...

    Oh nah I was totally kidding. I don't know if my girlfriend of 4 years would be cool with me driving to Houston to meet a man from the Internet because I think he can hook me up with some girls that are or were dancers in the NBA.

    Yeah I don't think that'd go over smoothly, I was totally kidding.

    He also killed the Nuggets single-handledly with that garbage three in game four.

    Rockets are all right, they'd be a lot better if they could get past the 1st round of the playoffs.

    I don't think I can exactly hate him because of that out-of-time 3 he made for the Lakers against the Kings 3 or 4 years ago. But man, that was messed up how that 1 action had such major implications.
