NBA finals passing me by

By far my favourite sport is basketball and the NBA is something that I have followed for nearly 25 years. Despite my team, the beloved Celtics, not having reached a final now for, cough cough….20 years, the finals have been something that HAS to be watched, even if the Lakers are involved. This year, however, I have no access to watch as in the UK the only place to view on television is SKY sports. The subscription cost is just too high. Hopefully, in their endeavour to reach a wider audience, the NBA will review how it sells the rights in the UK in future….are you listening Mr. Stern?? Maybe it is my bitterness that Tim Duncan was missed by the Celtics when he was first drafted by the Spurs, but he is just one win from another championship ring……how the Celtics could do with another banner.
