They playoffs have begun, well they started about two weeks ago but I’ve been unable to write about how I feel this year around. You know I really don’t have a favorite NBA team, I mean I’m from Arizona so it should be the Suns. The professional leagues are entertaining yes, they have some great players, yet I’m more about the energy of the game. I think that is why the playoffs are different from college tournaments. It’s a best of seven series, the winning team must win four games before they advance. It’s not just a single win, it requires multiple victories, and weeks of intensity.
It’s been nice these past couple of weeks because my cousin Calvin has been staying with us. He too is watching the playoffs religiously, we make our observations and predictions about the different series, not ever really going for one certain team. We watch and commentate about the refs calls, even flipping channels because there’s 2 different games on. It’s still the first round, teams are slowly falling into that Gone Fishing category. Remember not every team is going to walk away the champs, most won’t and maybe that is why we keep watching. We want to see who actually pulls it off, we want to see which team has what it takes to be considered great.
We all have the potential to do tremendous things in life; there is a set of rules, a coach to guide you, and a full-court that needs you to justify game time. Play your heart out, don’t be afraid to experience loss.
Go home and regroup
No need to dwell on bad games
I have another shot.
