Hot in the Shop – Week of May 16th, 2016 – Clear Vision – The conference finals are set in the NBA. Congratulations to the Toronto Raptors who easily dismissed the Miami Heat in yesterday’s game seven match-up. They will face the, long idle, Cleveland Cavaliers as LeBron James, once again, attempts to bring the championship starved city of Cleveland the NBA title.
The showdown in the NBA’s Western Conference promises to be quite a battle as Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook lead the Oklahoma City Thunder against the reigning champs, the Golden State Warriors and league MVP Stephen Curry.
In the NHL, an odd assortment of teams have reached their respective conference finals. The Tampa Bay Lightning and the Pittsburgh Penguins battle in the East. In the West, the San Jose Sharks and the St. Louis Blues will vie for their chance at The Cup.
The new “slide rule” in baseball caused tempers to flare during the Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays game yesterday. If you missed Jose Bautista getting his bell rung, you can see the clip here.
