I didn't know it. Maybe most spoiled people don't know they are spoiled. But I have seen the light. I'm spoiled. And maybe a little intransigent. I feel no compulsion to get over being spoiled. After all it isn't hurting anybody, that I know of.
I have seen so much good basketball this year. But I pretty much just watched the Spurs
. I tried watching some other games, but it was hard. It was truly boring and/or frustrating. Heat
? BORING. Heat/Chicago? SNOOZEVILLE. It is so hard to watch these other teams do isolation sets, or attempt to do some pick and roll that make the ones the guys I play with that weren't even good enough to play high school ball, look well executed. In fact, the pickup offense that we run looks downright organized compared to some of these teams. I tried watching the Nuggets
tonight, and I sat in awe and wonder as to how this could be the highest scoring team in the NBA. My wanting them to beat the Lakers
so badly didn't help. It was heartwrenchingly painful. My wife commented about me animatedly chiding my computer screen as I watched. She thought it must be that my Spurs were losing. No, not at all. The team that I wanted to win was leading. They just looked horrendous in the half court. Defense, hustle, rebounding, fast break, it all looked good. Even their shooting wasn't bad, considering all of the shots were contested. I just don't know what else to say, except that I'm shocked these guys don't try to do some kind of offensive set.
So, I'm spoiled. I get to watch the best. I don't know how anybody can call them boring. Maybe watching our guys break a defense down for another wide open 3 is boring. Not to me. Keep me entertained all the way into June.
Go Spurs Go!
