The Holidays are those times of deep thinking, it’s that element of remembrance with loved ones and close friends that make you grateful to be part of something outside of yourself. I have always had those relations and traditions occurring in my life, the consistency of these moments give me structure. I know their is a meal to be created and choreographed, gifts that need to be wrapped, there are all these tiny chores that add up to a memorable time, or traumatic.
I have been enjoying the NBA season so far, Kyrie is killing it, he’s doing his job fine and the Celtics have the best record in the eastern conference, so I hope to see Boston make it to the playoffs. The expected team to be in the finals prior to the season starting was the Cavaliers in the east, although at that time they had Kyrie holding down that fort. I am starting to understand Kyrie’s decision to be outside of that squad, you have a teammate that is talented and highly regarded, yet this teammate also needs to rely on other around him to maintain that stature. All I’m saying is that Kyrie is playing basketball at his tempo, and even got a victory over the Warriors a couple weeks ago, their the team expected to be playing in the finals for the western conference. Golden State is actually second in the conference now, not too far behind Houston.
We are only at the beginning of the season, all the other teams still have a fair chance. Lakers also have my attention, I been following Lonzo Ball, the rookie that is also a internet star, dude already has his own signature shoe, from his own brand. Watching him play, I don’t see Jordan, however I do see a kid that can ball. I don’t know if he’s living up to the hype he got from the media. I also know that these things take time, Rome wasn’t built in a day, I want to believe that this Lonzo Ball guy came to change the game. I see him making great passes and getting rebounds, he is facilitating the ball to his teammates lovely. I just don’t see him the way I would see a Westbrook, a beast ready to explode. Of course Westbrook has that experience and I feel that Lonzo is still building from those experiences he has yet to face.
I guess what it comes down to is respecting the process and being patient with how the universe works for you. Individually we have those paths, the time and place is just up in the air for most of us. We do have a great amount of control, it may not always feel this way, there is strengths in our thought, the mind is a muse for real living.
