How can anyone not love the NBA?

Clutch This image was on their homepage today and I thought of Jenny. It is beyond me why anyone would subject themselves to NOT being a part of this game. With players like Dirk, Jason Terry, LeBron, Kobe, Duncan, Nash, good old Sam Cassell, Chauncey Billups KG, Shaq,Tony Parker, and Dwayne Wade pulling triple doubles, flagrant fouls, blocks, 3 pointers, and sweet dunks game after game. Everyone should invest their time in at least one of the Mavs v Spurs series. This is a knock down drag out fighting tooth and nail series that will have you yelling "suckas!" at your TV one minute and praying to the basketball gods the next.

As far as I'm concerned any game that combines smooth moves, sweet kicks, monster jams, and the occasional Ron Artest moment to keep you on your toes is as good as it gets.

Thanks James Naismith for reading up on international games in 1891 and coming up with your own version called basketball. The only purely American sport.

ps. Is it just me or does this look like Dirk and Nash if they were playing in the 70's?

kristi, amazing blog and my feelings exactly! how is that picture NOT dirk? it looks exactly like him, goofy smile and all. interestingly, both his and nash's hair are more 70s today than in that picture. anyway, i'm back from tejas and ready to get back in the groove. we've got some serious season finales and playoff games to tend to. jeff's in town tonight, but i'm sure we'll watch the game. i swear i'm getting an ulcer from this series.
