2010 NBA Finals – Game 7 Retro Diary

I didn’t get to see Game 7 live. One of the tragedies of these 2010 NBA Finals has been the scheduling – in the Land Downunder, not one Finals game was played on a Saturday or a Sunday. Very frustrating. I followed the game on the play-by-play, and later that afternoon I read all the […]

For three reasons: 1. Before last year’s playoffs started the signs […]
