Since throwing out the words "Basketball Reasons" is apparently enough to veto a 3-team blockbuster trade these days, it must mean something pretty important, right? Maybe, but since those two magically vague words have achieved so much, I wonder what else they could do. David Stern has his reasons, so what are mine?
- The Awkward Conversation Reasons: You know that coworker or classmate that you only discuss one thing with? I bet many of you are like me and that thing is usually professional basketball so...what now? Neither of us are lawyers, so acting like we understand the lockout is pretty pathetic. We could try to talk about something else, but what if he doesn't watch Glee? So instead, we settle for an overly-awkward "Can't wait for this lockout to be over, kay bye". Not our fault though (Basketball Reasons).
- The Girlfriend Reasons: As a college student/partier, you might actually find yourself with a significant other for once. Say things go well, you repeat it and before you know it-you're dating! Summer's fine and dandy, but then you find yourselves back at school and your with each other every single day. You might even get really sick of seeing each other and secretly want a break. This is when you think to yourself "If only I had basketball". Unfortunately, this wasn't the case- we broke up (Basketball Reasons).
- Fantasy League Reasons: How many websites do you check regularly? I can basically count them on one and a half hands. Considering this, you may find it alarming that I can still manage to spend all of my free time on my laptop. Last year, I had one more finger sticking up when counting my websites, because I was basically destroying the other seven members of my fantasy basketball league. It was a glorious time for me, but sadly, things this year have been different. Instead of checking fantasy basketball, I check fantasy football. My record: 2-11 (Basketball Reasons).
I'm so happy basketball is finally back!
