Early All Star Game

I couldnt be more excited about this NBA season. I’m a die-hard Celtics fan, anti-Kobe, anti-Lakers, I’m one of those Lebron James fan who reads updates on him like ‘Lebron was hungry, so he ate’. I’m also a huge Shaq fan who always tells Kobe-lovers that Shaq was the MVP during all three finals he won with Kobe. So if you ask me, my life as an NBA fan in 2010-2011 season couldnt get any better: Shaq is in town, Lebron will have a real shot to win many rings and make my life easier when I argue in his behalf in the matter of ‘best player ever’, its almost too good to be true.

Quoting Bill Simmons : “Rule No. 6: Once you choose a team you are stuck with that team unless one of this condition applies: c) You followed your favorite college star (and this has to be a once-in-a-generation favorite college star) to the pros and supported his team.” I know Lebron didnt went to college but he is that guy for me, I will support his team. I’m still a Celtics fan but I just cant help myself rooting for Lebron to win the MVP, to win a ring, to score at the buzzer, to beat Kobe, to prove himself.

Enough said about me, lets focus on opening day, Tuesday. It’s an early All-Star game. Starting lineups: Rondo, Allen, Pierce, KG, Shaq; cousin Mario Bros, Wade, Lebron, Bosh, cousin Joel. The 2009 NBA All-Star Game contained 7 of this players and that does not include Rondo. Im telling you this Heat-Celtics matchup is an early All-Star game, congratulations to David Stern and the NBA, there isnt a better game to start one of the most awaited NBA seasons of all time.

Its been said that Miami is Wade’s team and Lebron’s kingdom, but make no mistake, Bosh is not my cousin (and not just because he looks like a dinosaur from Jurassic Park and I dont), this guy can play. To me Bosh’s future role comes down to two options: he could be Jerry Rice, catching balls from Joe Montana and Steve Young, winning championship rings, hall of famer or he could be Jason Varitek (no, I’m not calling the captain of my beloved Red Sox ‘cousin’, not happening) cacthing balls from Pedro Martinez and Josh Beckett (2007, 20-win Josh Beckett), winning championship rings but nothing else. Anyway I’m happy for the guy, after all he is winning championship rings.

This is cousin Paul and dont call me Tuesday (for multiple reasons).
