What a weekend in LA. The NBA does a fantastic job on All star weekend….yes, I know, Some of the silliness is over the top but you know that going in. I have always said that they do 3 things that matter very well.
Embrace the PAST, celebrate the PRESENT, and showcase the FUTURE. Speaking of the future, what an exciting offensive game the Rookies and Sophomores gave us. Seeing John Wall and Boogie Cousins playing together one more time was special and it made you realize what those KY Wildcats had this past season. Lets hope their own NBA teams can improve next year.
Is it weird to you to watch a commercial during the All Star game with great footage of players from the past, and then someone trying to sell you a KIA? Is it just me? Moving on…I got goose bumps when Stevie Wonder sang his version of HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Charles Barkley, that’s the version we sing at my daughters parties. I love me some Stevie. In the end, the BLACK MAMBA (Kobe), showed us why he is still simply the best (as Tina Turner would sing). LeBron and the East made a strong push but come on LBJ, I always take up for you. You have to take the crunch time shots. My good “friend” Celtic Man says he wants Carmelo to come to the East. It looks like its gonna happen…Stay tuned.
