Enough about Game 1, it’s almost time to turn our attention to Game 2 of the NBA finals.
But before we do, here is a great video from NBA.com looking back at the first game, with some cool footage and interviews. This is a good way to start out your Thursday morning. Then we can get on with the business of whether or not the Heat can make this a series.
Report: Bulls close to deal with former Celtic R.J. Hunter
Hunter belongs in the league. Though he must knock down shots far more reliably than he has, Hunter has potential as an outside shooter with complementary ball skills to provide value. Boston just had more NBA-caliber players than roster spots.
He’s far from a lock to succeed in the NBA, but I value Hunter about as much as Tony Snell – whom the Bulls just traded for an upgrade at backup point guard in Michael Carter-Williams. That they could so cheaply replace Snell makes that deal look even better.
