The NBA has its dream ratings series, we are fortunate enough to not have to watch either the Pistons or Spurs, and our boy Ray Allen finally gets his chance at greatness. This really will be a showdown for the ages…at least until it happens again next year!
Since the NBA takes a week off leading up to the Finals, we get that sort of SuperBowl, overwhelming, make-me-want-to-puke coverage that will probably drive us all a little nutty. This year will probably be even worse while ESPN Classic is throwing up every single Lakers-Celtics matchup from the past 50 years along with a Bird-Magic series to give modern day porn-mops a smile. (I just wish that one year we would have an unpredictable media.)
As we said in the beginning, this is our first NBA Finals as a blogger and we’re not really sure the approach we’ll take yet. Fortunately for us, we’ve made a few contacts over the past 5 months and hope to do some interesting collaborations while continuing to bring you that signature Le Basketbawl style!
We’ll try not to make too many Kobe-MJ comparisons and also try not to bring up Kareem or Russell, but we will poke a ton of fun at their arses! I think our goal is also to pay some special attention to a few aspects of the game not normally covered. We’ll see what we come up with, but this should be an entertaining journey to say the least.
