Only thing NBA’s left with is a bloody nose
Question of the Day
So long, Yao.
And McGrady, too.
There is no Kobe. And no Shaq and D-Wade either.
The superstar drain in the NBA playoffs is pronounced.
Dirk never showed up to the postseason in a persuasive way.
Mavericks coach Avery Johnson tried everything with Dirk, except the Heimlich maneuver. The latter was Johnson’s greatest omission as coach.
Agent Zero watched the show in street clothes.
A.I.? Gone. Melo? The same.
The following failed to make the cut: Elton Brand, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Pau Gasol and Jermaine O’Neal.
In Pierce’s defense, he was bound and gagged on the bench in accordance with the Celtics enhancing their lottery prospects.
The Celtics tanking another one is a long way from Havlicek or Bird stealing the ball.
At least we have Steve Nash’s bloody nose, a gusher far richer in detail than Curt Schilling’s bloody sock.
The Spurs-Suns series is the de facto NBA Finals, a development that hardly tickles the television executives with so many ho-hum proceedings left to be aired.
It is tough waiting all season on the playoffs, only to find that what is left is as disorderly and unappealing as the fright wig of Anderson Varejao.
It is said the Spurs lack the capacity to captivate the nation unless you count the presence of Eva Longoria.
