To top, so many teams were being underdogs & rose up like anything - example, Memphis & Celtics were okish at start but flourished well towards the end.

Boston, were impressive in the east as they WASHED OUT the title favs #Brooklyn

+ they wiped off the 2021 champs, the Bucks & made their way onto the #NBAFinals like a real team, stacking some real tough cookies to crack.

Celtics were almost title favs, until the OG, dynastic GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS started to

1/Tonight, for the 17th time in the last 50 years, the #StanleyCup champion returns to defend their crown. This time, the #TBLightning are going for that rare feat - a three-peat and #dynasty status.
2/Three-peats and dynasties themselves are relatively rare. Below is a tour of the dynasties from the last 50 years starting with the 1974 Oakland #Athletics completing a three-peat with a 4-1 win over the #Dodgers with this home run.
3/ In 1979, the #CanadiensMTL completed their second four-peat, winning 4-1 over the New York Rangers. #StanleyCup #Dynasty

Pre juego 3 Warriors - Celtics #nbafinals

Vamos a ver la estadística del juego anterior

Celtics / Warriors

Celtics encestando pobremente de todos lados 38%. Warriors menos pobremente con un 45%

Grafica de ventajas del partido.

Desde el final del 2o cuarto Warriors ya no soltó la ventaja y solo la hizo crecer.

Líderes en puntos, rebotes, asistencias y bloqueos.

Pero muy importante Warriors con 5 jugadores que encestaron en doble dígito, Celtics solo tres.

Adicional Celtics 18 pérdidas de balón.

Just a kid from Sepolia…🌹

Ο Γιάννης Αντετοκούνμπο οδήγησε την ομάδα του τους Milwaukee Bucks στην κατάκτηση του NBA. Μια διαδρομή βγαλμένη από μυθιστόρημα. Μια διαδρομή, στην οποία δεν λησμονήθηκε ποτέ το παρελθόν.

#NBAFinals #Γιαννης #Αντετοκουνμπο
Ο Γιάννης που πήρε τελευταία στιγμή στα 18 την ιθαγένεια πρωτοστάτησε μεταξύ των αθλητών στο κίνημα Black Live Matters. Ο Γιάννης από το μικρό διαμέρισμα στα Σεπόλια τη χρόνια που γίνεται πρωταθλητής δεν ξέχασε να ενισχύσει τους ανθρώπους στη γειτονιά του που το έχουν ανάγκη.
Γιάννης Αντετοκούνμπο… πολλά περισσότερα από ένας πρωταθλητής. Ένας σπουδαίος άνθρωπος. Απλά ένα παιδί από τα Σεπόλια.

Saw one #COVID19 #vaccine commercial during the #NBAFinals game tonight. It was very well done (and I’m hoping I just missed a few more), but seeing as how these guys are all making millions off of a re-opened society, every other commercial should be a get vaccinated PSA IMHO…
I saw lots of examples of why people really should be vaccinated (ie lots of people crowded tightly together with no masks- and no I don’t believe they were all vaccinated) at the game and among the fans shown, but very little support for / modeling of public health measures. 🤦🏽‍♂️
They literally should have a different @NBA all star thanking healthcare workers, and every American who’s been vaccinated, every commercial break. And then asking Americans to get vaccinated or wear masks - so we can stay open and they can keep making money. Just my opinion…

A shared executive. A shared Finals. Even a shared players intro song.

The Phoenix Suns are in the #NBAFinals and they’ve got a long shared history with our Chicago Bulls. Here are 18 facts (and one bonus) that bind our two franchises.

A thread. ImageImage
Between 1966 and 1970, the NBA added eight expansion teams, going from nine teams to 17. Two of those teams were the Chicago Bulls and Phoenix Suns.

As we’ll see in this thread, they shared a helluva lot, starting with their first employee.

🏆 The @Suns are a day away from their 1st #NBAFinals since ’93. Open the thread for how they got here. ⤵️

Got the Moment in your collection? Show it off in the comments 🌞 Image
It really started in The Restart, when the @Suns went a perfect 8-0 in Orlando in 2020 -- including this game-winner from DBook.

The Moment:
Phoenix JUST missed the #NBAPlayoffs last year ... but the buzz was real. And a foundation was being built around a rising-star young core.

(+ a lot of oops to Ayton)

THREAD: o Los Angeles Lakers está a uma vitória de conquistar o seu 17º título da NBA. Após o Jogo 4, tivemos algumas informações e curiosidades interessantíssimas relacionadas à franquia.

Acompanhe o fio. 🧶👇 Image
Pela sexta vez em sua carreira, LeBron James chegou aos 500 pontos, 150 rebotes e 150 assistências em uma única edição da pós-temporada.

Na história da NBA, com exceção de LeBron James, apenas um jogador conseguiu fazer isso, e apenas uma vez: Larry Bird, nos playoffs de 1987. Image
LeBron James está entre os melhores em tudo:

▪️ Ontem, ele ultrapassou Elgin Baylor e se tornou o quarto jogador que mais converteu lances-livres na história das finais.

▪️ Se tornou, também, o quinto jogador que mais disputou jogos de #NBAFinals. Image

LeBron @KingJames is playing his 10th #NBAFinals

Regardless of outcome, he has cemented his legacy as one of the greatest athletes of his generation.

But there is another legacy that many aren't aware of: bringing fine wine into the mainstream.

Thread time 🍷🍷🍷
1/ It may seem contrarian for a superstar NBA athlete to be obsessed with drinking wine.

It feels counterintuitive to performance.

However, his stats, like wine, have only improved with age.
2/ LeBron didn’t even start drinking wine until he was 30.

Now he drinks wine pretty much every day.

(I think this is LeBron’s equivalent of Michael’s Secret Stuff)

.@josh_levin makes all kinds of rationalizations about why @NBA ratings in the toilet isn’t about #China. News flash: It’s about China!!!

I’ve watched the #NBAPlayoffs , and even attended #NBAFinals. But I haven’t watched a single game this year...…
I don’t mind if players want to protest. But for the same players to deliberately turn their back on far worse brutality in China is totally hypocritical, amoral, and undermines the strength of their arguments about life here... 2/
@Lakers et al can do whatever they like. But my #NBABoycott started months ago - and it’s going to continue unless and until @NBA both confronts #China and their rank hypocrisy over same... 3/3

1/ Congratulations to the #Raptors and to #Canada on winning their first NBA title. They played a great series - #kawhileonard was a great leader but 4 players with 20 points in an elimination game is huge. #NBAFinals
2/ The #Warriors showed a lot of heart and hustle in staying in this game despite injuries and had the ball in Curry's hands with a chance to win, but didn't get it done. #NBAFinals
3/ Yes, the #Warriors were banged up in an epic way, but that doesn't take away from what the #Raptors accomplished. Remember when the 1987 #Lakers beat a banged up #Celtics team? As a #Celtics fan, I was still in awe of how talented the Lakers were.

La HISTORIA de cómo se formó a través de los años uno de los mejores equipos de Baloncesto de la historia

Un estilo de juego bien definido, pero lo más importante es que lograron formar una FAMILIA

Empezamos 🍿👇🏼
No podemos empezar de otra forma más que con el artista principal de esta obra, el señor Greg Popovich.

De padre serbio y madre croata, se graduó en 1966 en el Instituto Merrillville y en 1970 en la Academia de Fuerzas Aéreas de los Estados Unidos.
Allí jugó 4 años al baloncesto, y en su año senior fue el capitán y el máximo anotador.

Jugo también en la liga profesional de baloncesto de la antigua Yugoslavia (que era una de las más fuertes de Europa) y fue 2 veces maximo anotador.

In it's 72-year history, every game in #NBAFinals history has had one thing in common. They've all been played in the United States. Thanks to the @Raptors win in Game 6 of the ECF, that changes as of Thursday when they host Game 1 of the 73rd #NBAFinals vs. the @warriors.
Much like Game 3 of the 1992 World Series was for @MLB and the World Series (when the @BlueJays hosted the @Braves), Game 1 of the 73rd #NBAFinals will mark the first time the @NBA's championship round will be played north of the border, in Toronto. #NBAFinals
And as we know, the @BlueJays would go on to win that World Series, the first of two consecutive World Series titles for the Blue Jays. Only time will tell whether the @Raptors, understandably the heavy underdogs vs. the dynastic @warriors, can repeat that TOR history. #NBAFinals
