From time to time I have so much going on that the managing of it takes up all my time and I forget about blogging for a couple of days. Of course, that never lasts long since I have a never ending need to purge words from my fingers and an insatiable want to gather and share Celtics news. So, now that it’s been a couple of days since I’ve been able to actually write, here’s my effort to kinda catch up. (random thoughts after the jump)
So, when do the Finals start? What’s that? It’s over already? Why didn’t anyone wake me?
Seriously though, I’m one of the millions of sports fans that just didn’t bother watching much of the Finals. I know it was King James and the Dynasty Spurs and all that, but I just didn’t care. I enjoyed the first round a lot more than I expected, I liked the 2nd round quite a bit, but the conference finals were kinda meh, and I only caught bits and pieces of the first couple of Finals games. There didn’t seem to be any need to watch games 3 and 4 and now it is over.
That’s weird to think that basketball is over for the next several months. Seemed pretty anticlimactic to me. I think I’ll care a lot more when we are in the playoffs next year. You heard me. Playoffs.
Ok, so Kobe still wants out of Los Angeles. The folks at ESPN are working themselves back up in a froth trying to get him traded to an Eastern Conference team. They even bring up the Celtics from time to time. I’m still not going to bother trying to figure that one out because it is never going to happen. I still don’t think he’ll get traded, and if he does he’ll want to go somewhere where they can win the title within two years like Shaq did. Poor spoiled rich kid. If he had just gotten along with Shaq, he could have easily convinced the Buss family to pay up to keep him in town and he wouldn’t have to be pissing and moaning now. I wish he would go away and I don’t really care to think up crazy trade ideas to get him here.
Speaking of crazy trade ideas, what an amusing week it was last week on RealGM. With all the server issues on this site, it was a welcome distraction. I admit the guy had me going for a bit. And I guess I still can’t say I’m 100% sure he wasn’t telling some version of the truth. But when he posted something with "Ryen" Gomes writing to say hi to everyone, that’s when I decided I had enough. I don’t care how fast he’s typing, there’s no way the articulate Mr. Gomes is going to misspell his own name.
What makes it even funnier is that the day after Thug wrote about Rashard Lewis being friends with Gerald Green and wanting to come to Boston only if he was not part of the deal, there was the exact same story in the Globe. Now, if the story was true, then the guy may have been telling the truth. However, if it wasn’t, where exactly did Shira Springer get that story? I’m willing to give her the benefit of the doubt that some team executive read or heard that rumor and told Shira about it. In that case, she’s just quoting a source. Of course, not everyone is going to give her that benefit of the doubt.
I could go on about the 100 different ways that saga was so funny, but I think I’ll just leave it alone. Celtics Thug goes down with CROTOR and "literally shaking with excitement" in the annals of Internet legend.
That’s about all I’ve got on my mind. I now return you to your daily trade rumors and reports from draft workouts.
