With the NBA playoffs in full swing, I feel a yawn coming on. A big one. I don’t mean to consistently bag on the NBA, but I feel as if I have to. I’m usually not one to comment on competitive balance in any league, however the lack of said balance in the NBA makes for the early round yawning.
What can be done about this? In my case, nothing. Unless there are land mines on the court I don’t find the first round, or the second round for that matter, of the NBA playoffs interesting in the least.
Is it good to see if a young 76’ers team can hang with the Bulls? I guess. I’ll really just watch the highlights, or at best have it on in the background while I clean. It’s sports, I can’t completely ignore it. It’s not in my DNA to be able to ignore sports.
So, like I’ve said before, please someone just let me know when the eastern & western conference finals start. At that point, I’ll be ready to pay close attention.
