Jun 19, 2012 —  You kinda like Lebron James. Admit it. Deep down, hidden beneath the bubbling rage that sprouts up when you see him pull a crafty clutch jumper or draw a sneaky foul, you still love watching him play.

You might claim you don’t. You might claim the Heat’s big 3 can take their praise for Coach Spoelstra and blow it out their butt-stras. You might even show up at our offices after reading this and threaten to burn the place down. But that’s okay, because we’re equally confused about our own feelings too (and we don’t work in a Class A building anyway, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to set ablaze).

Granted, if you have any love for Cleveland, you’ve earned an exception. But even the most cavalier Cavalier is making time to see Kevin Durant try and put Lebron in his place, so you Los Angelenos can (and should!) too. Luckily, there are a ton of great sports bars in LA where you can catch the series surrounded by whatever mix of friends, enemies, and frenemy fans you want.

So whether you agree that Coach Brooks sculpted James Harden into the best player to come off the bench or you think Dwyane Wade really is the crankiest player in the NBA, LA sports bars make it easy to yell, scream, cry, chant, and rant at the NBA Finals in all its glory.

Stay humble, sports fans.
