A Power Shift in the East

There is absolutely no reason I should be sitting here talking or, rather yet, thinking about basketball, especially since the NFL is about two weeks away from kicking off. Yet, here I am, with no choice.

There has been such a flurry of activity, especially in the East, that I have no choice but to sit back and try to make sense of any of what has happened.

So, with a long way until the start of the season, I give you: My Eastern Conference Playoff Scenario.  

Miami Heat

NBA Finals rendition of: Who’s Hot and Who’s Not

What more is there to say?

At times, you either have it, or you don’t!

When it comes to the NBA Finals, you have to bring it every night.

You have to be prepared physically, mentally, and emotionally.

For those who can hack it, congratulations because you have made it onto the hot list, but for those who “can’t take the Heat,” stay out of the AAA (American Airlines Arena).

Miami Heat

My Worst Nightmares

This is what I was afraid of.

Even before the teams for the NBA Finals had been decided, I could see Miami working past the teams in the East. It was no big deal because in my eyes, Detroit should have been beat by last year’s Heat team.

The worries came when I saw Dallas unearth the San Antonio Spurs.

As much as I like watching the Mavs, I was scared of what they could do to the Heat.

The only problem is, I had no idea…

Florida Marlins

The Best-Kept Secret in South Florida

Here are the top five things to know about South Florida:

  1. Don’t go outside when a hurricane comes rolling through!

  2. South Beach really is the place to be.
  3. Old people, people sixty-five and older (no offense), should not have a driver’s license.
  4. The education here sucks.
  5. The fans here are, for the most part, all bandwagon fans.

For all those who live in South Florida, these five things are no brainers. These people are probably saying something like, “We already know this. So what.”

To this I say: Fine. You probably did know this. But here is the thing. You may know these simple and obvious things about South Florida, but do you know what ‘the best kept secret’ in South Florida is?

Miami Heat

South Beach Savvy

Can you feel the Heat down in your soul?

With the Miami Heat just one game away from their first ever trip to the NBA Finals, I felt compelled to give a shout out to the Boys of South Beach.

They have done a magnificent job of not only dismantling but also demoralizing the Piston team. As is evidenced by their play and domineer, the Pistons are unraveling.

Detroit Pistons

No ‘D’ for Dynasty- Just ‘D’ for Detroit

The Statement: It’s over!

The Question: Wait a second, what’s over? Was there anything even there, so we could actually say that it is truly over?

The Answer: No!

If I may dare to ask, will all the confused individuals please raise their hands!

Thank you.
