As a New Yorker, I had no favorite team to win the NBA championship. I’m a Knick fan, first. A great player fan, second. Between Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett, who could I side with? I like them both. All I looked for was a great series, and to make it interesting, how about Kobe Bryant take the Boston Celtics to the brink?
After the Lakers first win, Kevin Garnett was at a loss for words during the press conference. This is all he ever wanted: the opportunity to play for a championship. The Celtics were still a game up, but Kevin Garnett has had some success in the playoffs, only to see it slip away. Dude was nervous. That’s when I made the decisive switch to root for the Celtics.
Through years of half-ass teams, Garnett has put so much of himself into the game and when his best chance to win a ring pops up.. Now I want him to fall? Nah, that’s for the sour patch kids.
Paul Pierce was fined $25,000 by the NBA for allegedly flashing a Piru Blood gang sign at the Atlanta Hawks center Al Horford. During a game 3 playoff loss on Saturday, Al Horford hit a big shot, after which he trash talked Paul Pierce. Apparently, Paul Pierce didn’t like his yapping.
A timeout was called after the shot was made. As Al Horford walked to his bench, Paul Pierce moved toward center court, making sure Horford could see him, and flashed a hand signal in the air.more..
