The NBA Finals are upon us again. Yes, it's early June and they're still playing basketball. Nonetheless the sport here is massively popular and this year's two finalists -- LeBron James' Cleveland Cavaliers and defending champion Steph Curry's Golden State Warriors -- are ready to go seven games to determine the winner.

Beijinger Reader Sports Bar of the Year Paddy O'Shea's will show the game at 9am, and will offer curry dishes from upstairs neighbor Ganges, to commemorate three-point specialist Steph Curry's appearance in the finals. Look for a special curry cocktail during the game, head leprechaun Paul Rochon told the Beijinger late Thursday.

Hutong joint Cuju will also show the game, at 9am with bottomless coffee available.

Other venues including The Local were still pondering their broadcast schedule pending broadcasters and customer interest.

If some nonsense such as work pops up and prevents you from going to a fun venue and enjoying the game there, the game should be available online via local internet broadcasters including LeSports. Turn your VPN off and click that link and you should be in business, minus occasional buffering and Chinese commentary.

The first game of the best-of-seven series is June 3; the next is June 6. Stay with theBeijinger.com for full details of how and where to watch the NBA Finals.
