South Florida, you’re in position to make “winter sports” history.

This is the 75th season in which the NBA and the NHL will both crown champions, and never has the same city or market won both the NBA championship and the Stanley Cup in the same season.

The Miami Heat finished first in the NBA East, thereby seeded to reach The Finals, and is playing the Philadelphia 76ers in the second round of the playoffs. The Florida Panthers finished with the best record in the NHL, claiming the franchise’s first Presidents’ Trophy, and are playing the Washington Capitals in the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
