Ulcers and nightmares have been plaguing me for the past week in regards to Superbowl XLVI – though I did have one good dream in which I played for the Pats and had more yards than Ochocinco has had the entire season (but I guess that isn’t saying much).
Anyways, with the Superbowl only a couple days away, I’ve realized I needed to take my mind off of all the excitement surrounding it. What else better to write about than my first love, Basketball.
With the Celtics having an up and down season (thank god I’ve had the Bruins and Patriots to preoccupy me) I’ve been watching how the other former/present power house teams have been doing such as the Heat.
Watching a Heat game, more specifically Lebron James can usually be summed up in 3 ways:
- High scoring
- Top 10 play worthy
- Blow out game in Miami’s favor until the 4th quarter.
Now we all know the running joke of “If you ask LeBron James for change for a dollar, he’ll only give you three quarters in return”. This was most apparent in last year’s finals against the Mavs; but did we expect his disappearance to continue into the new season?
Last night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks was a definite flashback. LeBron had a season high scoring 40 point game (24 of those in the 1st quarter), the top 10 play worthy dunk and a blow out game by Miami to only lose in the 4th quarter. That checks off everything from my list above. But with all of this said, I was thinking after the game;
Would LeBron James be better as a hockey player?
Here are my reasons why he maybe should have picked up a hockey stick instead of a football & basketball as a kid:
- His only competition for height and mass would be Zdeno Charas – dudes a beast!
- He already rocks the playoff beard (don’t know what that is? Click here to read our next post!)
- His hairline would be covered with a helmet
- Chris Rock is a supporter of LeBron in the NHL ( http://youtu.be/a0s3A4PNURg )
- And most importantly; there’s only 3 periods in a hockey game *chuckle chuckle*
It’s going to be interesting to see how the rest of the season pans out for LeBron and company. Guess we have to stay tuned!
