This was as fun an NBA Finals as we have had in a long time. Both the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs played at a high level, both sides showed heart, and all of that came through in Game 7. I am going to have withdrawals now that this series is over.
So let’s get one more fix.
Just sit back as a basketball fan and enjoy the drama of Game 7. This is the NBA.com micro-movie of the deciding game of the NBA Finals, and it’s a great way to relive it one more time.
The Cavs are shorthanded in the backcourt right now, with Kyrie Irving still out and Iman Shumpert sidelined for up to three months. Yahoo’s Marc Spears reports that they’re bringing in former Temple guard Dionte Christmas, who played for the Suns in 2013-14:
The Cavaliers are signing free agent shooting guard Dionte Christmas, a source told Yahoo Sports.
In 31 games for the Suns two seasons ago, Christmas averaged 2.3 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.4 minutes per game. He probably won’t get very many minutes if he makes the Cavs’ final roster, but there’s a chance they’ll keep him around on a non-guaranteed deal until Irving and Shumpert are healthy, just to have another body in the backcourt.
