Similar to what I wrote about this time last year: we have entered the sports limbo for 2019.
This year we had more exciting endings to both the NHL and NBA seasons.
Besides not having to endure yet another Boston championship (thank God), we got the benefit of seeing this young fan, Laila Anderson, hoist the Stanley Cup. Read more on her story here.
In the NBA world, the Golden State Warriors didn’t win the championship! That’s right, it wasn’t a dream. The Warriors really lost to Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors 4-2 in the NBA Championship.
