Before the Internet Podcast: The Evolution of the NBA Finals and why 2019 was so Special

Published

on

The Toronto Raptors made history last night, dethroning the Golden State Warriors and winning the franchise’s first-ever NBA championship. To say their 2019 playoff journey was unique and/or special, would be an understatement – never have we seen a team in any of the major sports have an entire nation rooting for them. The NBA Finals have changed in many ways over the years, but for NBA fans across Canada, everything changed on June 13, 2019.

This week Ricky D, Randy Dankievitch and Sean Colletti (three of Goomba Stomp’s biggest basketball fans) discuss the evolution of the NBA Playoffs and how it has changed and not changed over the years. Ricky shares his playoff experience in Toronto and what it was like to attend the Finals as well as participate in the Jurassic Park festivities while Randy and Sean share their frustration with the so-called “player empowerment” era. Other topics discussed include the Toronto Raptors organization; the rabid fanbase spreading across all of Canada; the US media; annoying sportscasters and how the internet and social media has impacted the game. All this and more!
