This is it, friends. This unprecedented NBA season has finally narrowed down to two deserving finalists, squaring off in a jazzed-up practice court at a repurposed complex on Walt Disney World property. It’s been a winding path, beset on all sides by strife and turmoil, but I hope that we can come together tonight in the spirit of fellowship, buoyed and strengthened by gratitude for the good fortune and many blessings that as here’s a drive into deep left field by Castellanos and that’ll be a home run. And so that’ll make it a 4-0 ballgame. Please join several of us below for hot NBA Finals open thread action.
