Chez, after reading your blog for the past few years I assumed you would be the kind of person who would hate everything LBJ represents. Go mavs. MFFL
Being Chicago born and raised, and being blessed by the Jordan/Pippen/Jackson years, I wished for a different outcome. But James beat the crap out of Rose when defending him in the forth quarter (&OT) the last four games. Kudos to Miami and the coach they were ready to dump. Still, gotta root for Dallas out of spite.
Sorry, what would that be, Josh -- wanting to win and to play with at least a couple of guys who were of his caliber? Yeah, that's a real shit attitude. As for the Mavs, good luck with that.
Gave up on round-ball when everyone grew so tall enough they could just drop the ball in the basket. Raise that sucker another 2 feet and the game might again be interestin.
As the wifey of a Cleveland boy, I am all too familiar with the heartbreak Lebron brought that town. No one blames him for wanting to win and play alongside equally talented players. The problem was the spectacle of his leaving and the way he shit all over Cleveland and his most loyal supporters in the process.
I agree with that, Sommer. The way he left was shitty -- no doubt about it. But once again, yes, he can't be blamed for wanting to help put together a team that will win him championships.
The Miami Heat. The New York Yankees of basketball. The team with the best players. I love it when that team happens to be my team. Heat in 6, again.ps. We need to root for the Canucks to win the cup, for JLS.
The NBA is the WWE of professional athletics.It's all fixed. The team the league wants to win, will win.It used to be Michael Jordan got every call under the sun and wasn't required to dribble the ball.Then, it turns out the refs were fixing games...I can honestly say game six of the 2002 (?) Western Conference final was the last NBA game I watched. Basketball used to be my favorite sport. It's a shame.
I grew up up in Chicago watching the great basketball rivalries develop - the Jordan vs Barkley vs Miller vs Ewing vs anyone else who wanted a ring during those years - so I really, really hate this "Let's get my ass to a team that is guaranteed to win because every player is a superstar" mentality that is so prevalent in the NBA now. It's no longer about the one guy, the one star, making the players around him step up their games and become better players and work as a team. So as a Chicagoan who misses those rivalries and who totally wishes Derrick Rose had a Scottie Pippen to his Michael Jordan, I say - fuck you, douchebag LeBron. I'm not normally a bandwagon fan, but I am for the next few weeks for Dallas, and Nowitzki better bring it.
