Another thing that makes me laugh is the Nuggets potentially landing Ron Artest. Let me first say that if they do pick Ron-Ron out of the trash I will strongly consider jumping ship and start writing a blog on the Utah Jazz! He is the epitome of what is wrong with professional sports today and I personally would not bat an eye if he never played in the NBA again (highly unlikely, but hey…). How a guy with a NBA-busy schedule still has enough time to get into that much trouble is a mystery to me. I’m thinking about renting a skywriter and having the pilot write, “No Ron Artest in Denver”, right over the Pepsi Center! Hopefully Nuggets management will get the memo.
Also keeping me doubled over in laughter was how everyone jumped right on LeBron’s case after he dished the final shot to a wide-open Donyell Marshall in the corner in the final seconds of game one. The defense collapsed on him and he did what he should have been done! What did everyone want him to do? Luckily, all those writers that questioned his “killer instinct” can now find their oh-so familiar spots on his derrière for the four or five games that it takes the Spurs to dispose of the Cavs. The Spurs are in a class of their own, and I am just glad that the Nuggets gave them what you can argue was the best series of their inevitable championship run!
And finally, the last thing that gives me the chuckles is Kobe Bryant. He is an All-Universe talent, that much is a given, but he is also an All-Universe knuckle head for the flip-flop routine he produced last week in regards to demanding a trade, I mean, wanting to stay, wait a minute, maybe wanting to be traded if the situation is right. Poor Kobe, the man needs a good publicist to run his ideas by before they become headline news.
