Frank Kaminsky’s Suns are in the NBA Finals!

LeBron? Jokic? Embiid? Durant? Nope, Frank Kaminsky has a chance to win the title this year.

On Wednesday night, the Phoenix Suns beat the Los Angeles Clippers 130-103 to win the Western Conference Finals 4-2 and punch their ticket to the NBA Finals. Led by Wisconsin Badgers legend Frank Kaminsky, the Suns are back in the Finals for the first time since 1993.

Kaminsky played, uh, zero minutes against the Clippers in this series but you can’t really teach the type of intangibles that a man who can chug a beer out the sun roof of a car brings to the table.

The last Badger to play in the NBA Finals was Devin Harris back in 2006 when the Dallas Mavericks lost to the Miami Heat and the last Badger to win the NBA championship was Michael Finley of the San Antonio Spurs, who won the very next year in 2007.

The only thing that Kaminsky needs to work on is his situational awareness as he can’t let his star point guard get shoved in the back like this again! PROTECT THE POINT GOD, FRANK!

The Suns await the winner of the Milwaukee Bucks vs. Atlanta Hawks series and will probably be favored to win as Trae Young of the Hawks and Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Bucks are both banged up.
