NBA finals are set: Warriors vs. Cavs. Hopefully some Canadian fans will tune in

Well, the Golden Stare Warriors have come back and finished off Oklahoma City tonight in the NBA, which means it will be the Warriors versus the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA finals. 

Of course, the Cavs finished off the Toronto Raptors last Friday to end Toronto’s season, and the NBA title hopes of all Canada. Now the work begins to sign their free agents.

I wonder if anyone in Canada will even bother with the NBA Finals now, in spite of another good matchup between Steph Curry and LeBron James. Usually, I find that Canadian interest in the NBA, and even Major League Baseball for that matter, drops off massively once the Canadian entry is knocked out of the playoffs. It will be interesting to see what the ratings are for the finals.

In other sports news, the Saskatchewan Rush could clinch the National Lacrosse League title this coming Saturday at home at SaskTel Centre against the Buffalo Bandits — yet no one is really noticing because the provincial media is obsessed with Saskatchewan Roughriders training camp coverage, also in Saskatoon.

    I’m curious about the ratings too. The Raptors’ following surprised me this year. Good to see Canadians representing their NBA team. Looking forward to following your blog!
