Paige Spiranac’s wild NBA Finals photos caused quite the stir this week.
Originally, early in her career, Spiranac started out with the singular focus of covering golf. Through the years, however, her mission has broadened and she now often weighs in on basketball, football and baseball.
This week, with the NBA Finals in full swing, she decided to commemorate the occasion with some provocative pictures ahead of Game 2.
They were an instant hit.

It goes without saying that this isn’t the first time in recent months Spiranac has set the internet ablaze in this fashion. Between her racy outfit choices, memorable Joe Burrow video and response to the Tom Brady dating rumors, she has been something of a permanent fixture in the news cycle.
In light of how exciting Game 2 proved to be, it will be interesting to see if Spiranac has any hot takes on what went wrong for the Denver Nuggets.
The Miami Heat came into this year’s NBA Finals as the overwhelming underdogs. And understandably so. From a sheer size perspective, not only do they not have anyone to legitimately body Nikola Jokic, even the likes of Aaron Gordon and Michael Porter Jr. are too lengthy for them. There was only so much Jimmy Butler could do.
There’s a reason the biggest story of the series after Game 1 was a Nuggets cheerleader’s wild personal photos going viral.
That being said, the Heat got hot in Game 2. When they make 17-of-35 three-pointers, it doesn’t matter how big the size disparity is – they’re winning that game.
The big question is whether someone like Gabe Vincent can come back in Game 3 and put up 23 points on 8-of-12 shooting, which included connecting on 4-of-6 from beyond the arc, like he did in Game 2.
The photos speak for themselves. https://t.co/9hpM8yPhtl

Of course, even if he can’t, maybe someone like the Caleb Martin, Duncan Robinson or the returning Tyler Herro can.
One way or the other, the rest of this series promises to be fun to watch. And far more competitive than anyone anticipated it would be.
What hot takes will Spiranac ultimately drop on the NBA Finals as they continue to roll on? Time will tell.
