Of course in this country a lot of ink, battery and satellite time are being spent on the Stanley Cup Final between the Hawks and Bolts.
As it should be. It appears to be a delightful matchup.
But perhaps you should check out the other big league championship series that spends its winters indoors on this continent.
The NBA Final features a couple of teams that are not from major American television markets, but fans of the game and even casual followers should check out the Golden State Warriors against the Cleveland Lebrons, errr Cavaliers.
Both coaches are rookies in the NBA. Steve Kerr was a player and television analyst for years before taking the helm of the Warriors, while David Blatt has spent the bulk of his time on the sidelines in Europe.
This makes five straight trips to the final for Lebron, who won a pair of titles in Miami with the Heat before his triumphant return to Cleveland over the summer. Eight years ago in his first go round with the Cavs King James had Cleveland in the final before being swept by San Antonio.
The Cavs are missing their third best player in Kevin Love with a dislocated left shoulder and their second best star, Kyrie Irving has tendonitis in his left knee which has seen him miss games.
The Warriors have one title in their history, 40 years ago.
The Oakland based squad was by far the top team in the regular season with a 67 and 15 record in the tough Western Conference.
The Warriors are led by the league MVP, six-foot-three guard Stephen Curry. Steve Nash called Curry the greatest shooter ever.
Curry has such an amazing quick release and he will bomb away from everywhere but he also can take the rock to the rim.
Golden State is the favorite, but never discount Lebron putting a team on his broad shoulders.
The Warriors should come out and play and win the title in six games. Let’s Hoop it up.
