Who’s On Your Team?
Answer: I have NO idea!
Recently, the National Basketball Association has confused me more than when I was trying to understand how the NFL decides who will get a wildcard spot, as in: [The Bengals can get in if a Jets loss is combined with a Denver Broncos defeat at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs. This will only apply if the Raiders beat the Chargers, thus winning the AFC West.]
Without thinking, I tuned in to an NBA game the other day and quickly realized that I am close to becoming one of those quasi-sports fans who cheers for teams based on the color of their uniforms. LaMar Odom is now a teammate of the guys who swept his old team in last year’s playoffs. [Shoutout to Ty Lawson for remaining with the Denver Nuggets, who beat the CRAP out of the Mavs recently. Yes, I'm still a Lakers4Lifer with a bitter taste in my mouth.]
Chris Paul is a Laker? Oh, wait…no, he isn’t. He plays for that other Los Angeles team. But, he was almost a Laker. [We didn't want him anyway...he is injury-prone.] Glen Is-It-Okay-To-Call-You-Big-Baby Davis is in Florida with Dwight Howard? What the … and with Delonte West? My head is spinning and I’m seeing double!
You see, I was already having major issues with the loss of my team’s beloved Phil Jackson. I had spent years ridiculing Mike Brown’s crazy clown-faced grimaces, and now I’m supposed to embrace him and believe that he can take us to another championship?
Another question: Who in the (bleep) left the gate open and let Vince Carter into Dallas? The defending champs are really grasping…and it shows. This is one thing that makes me VERY happy.
I will end this rant by simply saying, let’s get these teams settled. You guys are really screwing with my psyche. I guess all I really want is Metta World Peace. [shoutout to the former Ron Artest...while shaking my head.]
