The NBA Finals are upon us and everywhere you go, you find a different preview of the series. We’re going to analyze the rosters, but we’re doing it in a different way. Instead, we’re going to compare the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs rosters to a 1990s alternative band.

For those too young (or too old) to remember the 1990s, I’ll give you a quick history lesson. It started with Michael Jackson at the top of the charts until grunge rock made it’s entrance with Nirvana knocking the King of Pop off the top of the charts.

From there, bands like Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Alice in Chains followed suit to get their piece of the pie. If you loved flannel and had longer hair than your sister, you loved the early ’90s music scene. Let’s get to the teams!
