For starters, this is the first finals that the Golden State Warriors had to start on the road during their five year run. That alone makes these look different.
Secondly, this the first NBA Finals in eight years without LeBron James playing in the East.
Third, this is the Raptors first trip to the main stage.
So what did you think, Pounders? Was it what you expected? Anything stick out to you? Something to look for in Game 2?
Jump in about the NBA Finals . . . or ANYTHING. After all, it is the Open Thread.
[On a personal note, I have curated a music festival showcasing San Antonio acts. Sounds of Alamo City takes place on Sunday, June 2nd at Sam’s Burger Joint starting at 2:00 p.m. featuring my band The Gunslingers, River Barons, and solo performances by Laura Marie, Sierra Lynn, Larry D. Moralez, and Jeff Jacobs. We are all currently part of the City Council Local Music Spotlight Program, which has brought the City of San Antonio’s Arts and Culture as a partner. It is an afternoon, family-friendly event. Tickets cost $5, or you can take a chance and win a pair here. Hope to see y’all there.]
