As great as the games in the NBA Finals are, they are missing one key ingredient. The boo-yah, the flare, witty "cooler than the other side of the pillow" talk.
Stuart Scott has been there for years for post game interviews, the crowning of the champion, and those one-on-ones you won't see anywhere else. The colorful ESPN personality had a relationship with the players that is difficult to replicate.
ESPN aired a tribute to the fallen anchor during halftime, and it's easy to see why Scott is sorely missed.
Crowning a winner without Stuart Scott there will be weird, but he's certainly not too far away.
