The NBA Season kicks off tomorrow. And how excited are we?!
Well, as a Lakers fan…….not that excited 😦 How excited can you be if your star veteran player is hurt, the supposed up and coming star player left for greener pastures, your newcomers are a snore, your bench is singing crickets and your returning players are….well, how can I put this….are OLD. Plus the guys upstairs can’t even decide between ketchup or mustard.
And Jordan Farmar…? Don’t get me started on Dumbo…..
The Lakers are a battered washed up team who will probably make the playoffs but it definitely won’t be an easy road to get to. We will be lucky enough to see Kobe Bryant play his last game in full health and spirit.
The one distraction I can count on this season is seeing the return of Derek Rose coming back from a torn ACL injury in April 2012. Derek Rose is back, and back with a vengeance. Haven’t you seen his epic commercial? Here take a gander.
We can only hope that Derek Rose and his Chicago Bulls can take on Lebron James and the Miami Heat. Is anyone really rooting for Lebron this season? Aside from kiss ass ESPN, aren’t we already sick of him?
Aren’t we sick of hearing Michael Jordan come out and say he doesn’t like Lebron and would rather play with Kobe Bryant any day of the week? Hahaha, naw not really. But seriously, when talking about the NBA, there has to be other topics to talk about other than Lebron?
The Bulls, who were the only NBA team with an 8-0 preseason record, are again expected to challenge the Heat for the Eastern Conference crown this season. So of course, OF COURSE, ESPN had to ask Lebron about the come back of the only player whose on a team that can take on the Heat this season. “We don’t like them, they don’t like us,” James said of the Bulls after the drill. “It’s not unheard of. We all know how it is.”
So articulate. How does this guy come up with this stuff?
The only way this NBA season will be somewhat tolerable is if Lebron and the Heat lose. Not necessarily lose a lot, but lose just enough for him to make that hilarious cry face again.
Hopefully the Bulls can bring the Heat this season…..I mean beat the Heat…..I mean defeat the Heat. Just WIN Chicago! Do it for Michael! Do it for SpaceJam!
