CLEVELAND — The coronavirus pandemic has sapped us of our live sports, forcing many fans to go back and watch classic games to get their fix.
Networks have been getting in on the action, combing through their archives to find the best matchups people will want to see. ESPN stepped up on Wednesday, with a re-broadcast of Games 5 and 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals.
It was a fun time for Cleveland fans who got to re-live the Cavaliers winning the city's first major sports championship since 1964. However, Fox Sports Ohio (the local home of Cavs basketball) has announced it will go a step further and will re-air all seven games of the series in consecutive nights.
The marathon will begin with Game 1 on April 12 and will conclude with the epic Game 7 clash on April 18. Each replay will occur at 8 p.m.
If you choose to watch the whole thing, this means you would have to experience the blowout losses in Games 1 and 2 again, along with the late collapse at home in Game 4. However, besides the dominance of LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in Game 5 and the heart-wrenching tension of Game 7, you can also see Steph Curry throwing his mouth guard and getting ejected from Game 6!
