The Cleveland Cavaliers are back in the Bay Area as well. Every time the Cavaliers file into the Four Seasons before each game there is a crowd of fans to greet them. Today was no different. Dozens of people gathered to see the team walk into their hotel off Market Street, many of them Golden State Warriors fans. There is no doubt the Cavaliers are a team to be respected. And Lebron James got some extra cheers from fans when he arrived at the hotel.

The Warriors are up 3-1 in the NBA Finals. If the Warriors win Monday it's all over and they become back- to-back NBA world champions.

At the moment there are two professional league championship trophies being played over.
In addition to the NBA trophy, the National Hockey League's Stanley Cup is also in the Bay Area. Depending how the next couple days play out - those trophies could be handed out in succession.

It's nearly unheard of for back to back championship games in two different leagues to be scheduled in the same market. The last time it happened was back 2003 when the New Jersey Devils won the Stanley cup and the New Jersey Nets lost the NBA Finals in New Jersey.
