Back in July I looked at Jack McCallum's Unfinished Business, which is awesome. I was reminded of it tonight when the DCU Center's floor was not up to the task of hosting a NBA exhibition game. Why did I think of it? Consider the following, which I wrote the in July,
Thankfully they canceled the game. I was absolutely terrified as the attendants worked overtime to wipe the floor during stoppages of play. Can you imagine one of the Celtics' stars getting injured under those conditions? Of course Vince Carter, Jason Kidd, Richard Jefferson and Nenad Kristic were out of harms way. And that's why I love Tommy Heinsohn. He got all worked up, said the Nets' decision to leave those four behind was "bush", called for David Stern to take action and decided that Boston should return the favor on Tuesday. This is ten times worse than when LeBron sat out that game in Manchester last year. In conclusion the Nets have now joined the Lakers, Bulls, Pistons, Knicks and for some strange reason the Bucks on the list of teams I hate.
And yes I realize that I linked to myself twice in this post. I'm not proud.
