Colin Cowherd once said you can tell the story of the NBA without former Kentucky Wildcats. While that statement wasn’t true then, it certainly isn’t true now. After their series-clinching win over Boston on Sunday night, the Miami Heat have secured their spot in this year’s NBA Finals.
Led in large part by former Wildcats Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro, the Heat will face a Los Angeles Lakers team co-led by Lebron James and former Wildcat Anthony Davis, as well as veteran and former NBA Champion Rajon Rondo. Let’s also not forget about Heat executive Pat Riley, a former Wildcat himself and Lakers head coach Frank Vogel, a graduate of UK and former manager.
One team will claim the title and two former Wildcats will come out on top, with this year having its own chapter in the NBA History books. This year’s NBA Finals schedule is as follows:
Game 1 - Wednesday, September 30th
Game 2 - Friday, October 2nd
Game 3 - Sunday, October 4th
Game 4 - Tuesday, October 6th
Game 5 (if necessary) - Friday, October 9th
Game 6 (if necessary) - Sunday, October 11th
Game 7 (if necessary) - Tuesday, October 13th

Got this text out of the blue 3 years ago. Hopped on the phone a couple days later and talked for an hour about getting into sports media because he thought his basketball career was winding down.— Mark Titus (@clubtrillion) September 28, 2020

Pretty awesome journey for Duncan Robinson.
A list of who played well and who played poorly against the Tigers.
It’s hard to argue for anyone else as best in the league.
Things are getting even uglier for the Jets.
The Bears, despite being undefeated, truly have no idea what they’re doing.
But made up for it late in the fourth quarter with the go-ahead touchdown.
Continued prayers for James White and his entire family.
Ashton Hagans, Immanuel Quickley, Nick Richards and yes Khalil Whitney.
Bam Adebayo single-handedly leads the Heat to their first finals in five years.
