My name is Jessica. And I LOVE the NBA. Really. I'm totally obsessed with the NBA, I could talk about it all day and night. I don't get why other girls don't like the NBA, or other professional sports in general. I'd rather watch a good sports game (even an NFL game..eww I can't believe I just wrote that) over Jersey Shore, Teen Mom, Gossip Girl, or any of those chick shows! Sports are so entertaining and in this awful economy filled with dreary world news this is exactly what we need -- entertainment! I'm not saying that ignorance is bliss and that we should ignore what's going on in the world, but sports are going on too and I say we enjoy!
Anyways, I just ranted on about I don't even know what right now so let's get back to the subject at hand... the NBA. What a great time to be an NBA fan (unfortunately, not a great time to be a Laker fan, but that's a whole 'nother post). The NBA is awesome right now -- LBJ is doing what LBJ is expected to do (shine for all 47 minutes of the game -- ohh wait the game is 48 minutes long? I guess he didn't get the memo.), Kevin Durant is having a great season, the Spurs are super old but still hanging in there, Kobe is proving that he has found the fountain of youth, the Celtics are starting to make a comeback, the Clippers are actually having a winning season :O, etc. etc. etc.! So what gives, why aren't more people (at least people I know) enthused about the NBA?!?! I NEED to know -- do people just not like basketball? Are they annoyed by some NBA superstars? Do "their" teams suck and that's why they're not watching? What is it people??
Talk to me. I'm listening.
