It’s been quite awhile since we have seen a competitive NBA basketball game, but the Finals we all have been waiting for is finally here.

I don’t know about you, but when I am amped up about the games, there is only one thing that makes watching the game even more fun: An Official NBA Finals Drinking Game!

So, we are getting a little silly with some of the ways to make watching a game more fun. Obviously, sipping on your favorite cocktail or beer is one way to go, but mandatory drinks make sure your Finals party is a good time.

If you think you have what it takes to watch like a champ, check out the Fangirl Sports Network official NBA Finals drinking game that is sure to get a lot of laughs. So, here we go, take a drink when:

1. The TV cameras get a shot of Steph Curry’s mouthpiece.

2. Mark Jackson says something borderline incoherent.

3. LeBron James complains to the refs – roll your eyes, huff loudly and take a drink. Maybe take a small drink, because this alone could result in alcohol poisoning.

4. Someone not named Draymond Green gets a technical.

5. Steph Curry hits a three and turns around before it even goes in.

6. The Golden State Bench can’t believe what they just saw and come off the bench like they’ve lost their minds.

7. Steph is fouled and does not get the call – take a huge gulp.

8. The commentators make any comparisons between LeBron James and the great Michael Jordan.

9. Golden State scores consecutively on three straight possessions; and

10. Lastly, when LeBron James flops. Don’t get drunk!

So, there you have it, your 2017 NBA Finals Drinking Games. Feel free to reply in the comments below or tweet me to add to the list!
