This week on The Atlantic Files:

The 2022 NBA Finals are here! To help us preview the Finals matchup between the Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors is Alec Walt of the Alec Walt Show on Down the Block Sports! We talk all things 2022 NBA Finals, Boston Celtics, and 2022 NBA Playoffs. Maybe we’ll even sneak in some topics going around in the rumor mill or news desks.

Nobody has had quite the rollercoaster ride of a season like the Boston Celtics. They were on the outside of the play-in and playoffs and everything seemed hopeless for them. So much so that the last time we had Alec Walt on the show, we talked about having to trade either Jaylen Brown or Jayson Tatum for this team to truly achieve anything.

Now, here we are. The Celtics are set to face off against the Golden State Warriors for the 2022 NBA Finals. We brought Alec on to talk about what happened in the Miami Heat series. It was a very odd series that just traded blowout games until the very end when the Celtics were the last ones standing.

Then, we talked about the full journey of the team and what exactly turned the season around. There were a number of people who showed some tough love and called each other out, and then Brad Stevens also made some big-time moves to help the team.

On the other side, we talked about Stephen Curry and his legacy. There has been talk that he needs to win a Finals MVP just to cement his legacy even though he’s already the greatest shooter this league has ever seen. Is that just for clickbait or do people actually think this stuff?

Being from the suburbs of Philadelphia, it was hard not to become a Sixers fan during Allen Iverson's prime. Other than just the Sixers, I enjoy watching all forms and levels of basketball, especially the WNBA. Outside of basketball, I've been playing and coaching volleyball for most of my life. Also, after graduating from the University of Pittsburgh, I became a Software Developer by day, while writing and hosting podcasts by night.
