For once, Bill’s head is louder than his heart. He’s wrote a new column on ESPN about the NBA Finals, and no, he’s not raving over Kevin Garnett being MVP or giving fans another mercurial comparison between the ’07 Celtics to the greatest team of all time, the ’86 Celtics. No.
He’s already picked the Los Angeles Lakers to win the NBA Finals.
While that’s all fine and dandy, folks, look back at who this guy he: he’s labeled as THE Boston Sports Guy. He kills us with Patriots and Red Sox love yearly. This year, he wouldn’t stop giving too much love for Boston. I felt like banging my head against the wall after he wrote that utterly stupid column making the case about Garnett being the MVP.
I had a Lakers fan last night say to me, “Man, I really wouldn’t be disappointed if the Celtics beat the Lakers. I mean, KG does deserve a ring, after all.” And you, sir, deserve a foot in the ass. If I had the emotional fortitude to say that, after all the Celtics have been through, that I’d be happy if they DIDN’T go out there and grab number 17, and ensuing to say that Kobe deserved a post-Shaq ring, I’d have to be gladly to take a 100+ MPH fastball to the face. Especially after watching Kobe tear up my Spurs like the way my aunt’s boyfriend tore down beers [and getting incredibly wasted] a couple of weeks ago.
You know he’s been in SoCal too long when he starts writing things like this. I thought his Clippers obsession was cute, but this is ridiculous. I think if these playoffs have taught us anything it is that anything can happen in a seven game series (I learned that in the Dallas/Golden State series last season). Maybe we just need to fly in some Laker Girls to distract Kobe.
Ah, I guess this is Simmons’ reverse-jinx gig.
Lakers shmakers – Let’s watch the Celtics dispose of LA like the second rate dynasty they are.
