The NBA Finals are here.
While it's been a long decade since our were playing in the Western Conference Finals, you can still root for the small-market Oklahoma City Thunder against the hated Miami Heat as Game 1 begins tonight at 6 p.m.
The Thunder, formerly the Seattle Supersonics, are led by NBA scoring leader Kevin Durant along with point guard Russell Westbrook and swingman James Harden, whose beard reminds one of San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson. The Heat from South Beach are led by NBA MVP LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh.
I like Miami to win in six games because they were in the Finals last season, they're all business now and OKC hasn't faced the pressure of the Finals before.
