I was reading TrueHoop today and I saw this poem:
In Response to Kobe Bryant's Suggestion that I'd Choose Him to Take the Last Shot if My Life Was on the Line - By Sherman Alexie
Here's the thing,
Here's my end-of-life plan
(And I know I risk the condemnation
Of the Kobe-ists who love the isolation):
To save my soul
I'd choose the pick-and-roll
With a ball-handling assist-freak
And a big man trucking from the key
While a great shooting trustee
Waits on the wing.
Explanation after the Jump
It is in response to Kobe Bryant stating that the facts don't matter, and that he is a fantastic crunch time player. If you don't know who Sherman Alexie is, I suggest you find out. He's a 'creative type' from Seattle, and was one of the most vocal and visible people from that town that spoke out against the Sonics moving.
The poem above, don't get me wrong...but is the 'ball-handling assist-freak' Rondo? Is the 'big man trucking from the key' KG? Is the 'great shooting trustee' Ray Allen?
Or is not everything about me?
