With the first round of the 2009-2010 NBA Playoffs almost over, I feel obligated to write about the disappointments that I continue to watch. Take the Orlando Magic – Charlotte Bobcats series for instance, there isnt any substance to series. Dwight, I continue to cry over every call Howard, fouling out maybe the most interesting thing going on. Unless you count the passion in majority owner, of the Charlotte Bobcats’, Michael Jordan’s eye, but even his motivation isn’t helping the glee of this first round match-up.
Next we go to the Garden, where the Celtics seemed to have given game 4 away so that they could clinch the series at home. What difference does it really make when a bunch of old just about washed up verterans clinch at home or on the road? No matter where the clinching may happen the next round is the end of the road, running into Cleveland. Dwayne Wade put on a show for the Miami faithful in really a goodbye performance. You really don’t think he is staying there do you? I truly think he has a better chance of signing with LeBron in Cleveland than resigning in Miami, even if Amare comes to south beach, there still isnt a team around them.
Next we have The Grounded Hawks and the Milwaukee Bucks; Brandon, I dont know what to do with my hair, Jennings has finally come back around. He led the Bucks to their first playoff win in forever. Jerry Stackhouse seems to be somewhat rejuvenated and John, ship me to your team, Salmons continues to play lights out. But thats it, on the other hand you have Bibby, Joe, J-Smooth, Starvin Marvin, and Florida Gator Al Holford, and dont forget a bout second time is always better than the first Jamal Crawford. This team should be beating up on them, again why do teams continue to give the opposition hope. Cut their hearts out and move on.
Their isn’t enough of that glare of straight will and determination left in the NBA, especially not coming out of the east. Except for one guy who dawns the # 23 with pride and respect. If LeBron has taken anything from the great Kobe Bryant (yea I said it) and the Legendary Michael Jordan, it is their will to win, and their will to let nothing stand in their way. This series LeBron James has become unstoppable, if he already wasn’t! Nothing else needs to be said about this series in any way shape or form, except bring on Boston, its your turn next.
Hoepfully the second round will be more exciting. The West seems to have the better matchups but none of them are really on upset alert, except for maybe the lack of respect that the Light Show continue to give the Oklahoma City Thunder. Please for viewers sake make the games more interesting, (except in cleveland, we enjoy this), we need to be glued to the tv not flipping channels to see what reality show maybe coming on VH1 next.
This is Kile Marquis and yes this years NBA playoffs have a lack of competition. If you feel different in anyway comment below and tell me what you think!
