Love-Hate NBA

Kelly claims to be such a huge NBA fan but hasn't blogged about the NBA finals at all.  Here's the deal, I have a love hate relationship with the NBA. There I said it.

I have never been someone to listen to conspiracy theories of how David Stern waves his magic wand and the Lakers magically appear in the Finals. But seriously, I am sick of the politics and I have gone on record saying this before but... I don't like sports dynasty's.  I will almost always root for a underdog and I just hate seeing both the Lakers and the Celtics in the final. That being said, I hope the Celtics win. I like scrappy, I like players who all come to bleed on the court, and I like athletes who generally give a damn about their squad. And I just hate the Lakers. I have never been a fan, I think they are pathetic and I am still questioning how they got Pau Gasol for first round draft choices and gave up Kwame Brown and Javaris Crittenton. That is just amazing to me. Yes, I have been thinking about this for 2+ years.

I have caught a very limited amount of the Finals on TV. For the NBA fans out there, they are making it worthwhile. Some of the highlights show two teams that seem somewhat desperate to win a title. And Boston seems fed up with the hype that is the LA Lakers. I will say that Kobe Bryant is making a case of being the Finals MVP-- and will most likely win if the Lakers turn this thing around and force a game 7, Boston is a little bit more tricky. I say it will be Paul Pierce again. He hasn't had the cleanest games or even been a high scorer but he has been effective on both sides of the ball. Pau Gasol has been a game-changer when Kobe hasn't shown up in the 2nd half.

Okay ENOUGH. I am over the Finals, and will watch NBA basketball when Dirk plays Summer League. I love you DIRK!
