Detroit brings the title back East
If I remember correctly, the East hasn't won an NBA title since the '98 Bulls, but Detroit finally brought it back thanks to a whoopin' they put on L.A. last night. I thought they could do it, but I didn't think they could do it so well. They literally dominated every aspect of the game and just made the Lakers look silly. I was overtly pulling for Detroit, but secretly pullin' for Phil Jackson because he coached the Bulls to 6 championships in the 90's. I used to be a huge Bulls/Michael Jordan fan, so I was also a Phil Jackson fan. I think it's just too bad that, this time around, Jackson had to be surrounded with some of the cockiest basketball players in the game. Anyway, I think it's obvious the better team won and I'm glad they could finish it on their home court, so the fans in Detroit could enjoy it even more.
Basketball league one week out
Originally, the league was supposed to start this week, but it got pushed back a week thanks to some scheduling conflicts. So, that gave our team an extra chance to practice and get used to each other. Overall, I think we have a pretty solid, well-rounded team and I really enjoy playing with these guys. We're not a selfish team and we all seem to enjoy scoring and sharing the ball, which will help us to win games. Unfortunately, we have no idea what kind of competition to expect, so we'll have to wait till the league starts to see if we're any good. We have yet to play a full-court game together... the first time should be interesting.
