Hi, all.

And then there were four. After weeks of blood, sweat and cheerleaders,
we’re left with the elite quartet that survived the first two rounds of the NBA
postseason, earning the opportunity to play for one of the most coveted prizes
in all of sport, the Larry O’Brien trophy. The seasons of four coaches,
forty-eight players, hundreds of team staff and millions of fans worldwide can
be destroyed by a dropped pass, foul or missed free throw. At this time of year,
a single steal, block or assist can put rings on fingers and players in the
history books. If this all sounds a little epic, it’s because it is.
