NBA Playoffs Preview – First Round

This is written by somebody who we are hoping will become a regular contributor. His name is Adam and he actually knows and follows the NBA which -as many of you know- is something we’ve been missing from this website. Either way, here’s his preview for the playoffs:

First off, I would like to say that I live in the greatest state for the NBA…Missouri, with two major cities St. Louis and Kansas City and a combined number of zero teams. So that means I have no team, but I love the NBA and always have since I can remember, of course I grew up a Bulls fan (who didn’t)!

The NBA seems to be somewhat rejuvenated from a competitive standpoint with a crop of true Superstars in LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard, and many more.

Shaq’s New Show

LAKERS MEDIA DAYFor the last two Tuesdays I’ve found myself watching Shaq Vs., the new show on ABC.  In it, Shaquille O’Neal takes on top athletes from around the country in their respective sport.  The results are predictably hilarious.  In the first episode Shaq took on Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger in a 7 on 7, two-hand touch football game.  Roethlisberger’s team won, but the highlight of the night came when Shaq left the sideline to pick off Big Ben’s pass and rumble down the field for a score (which did not count.)

In last night’s episode, Shaq took on the best sand volleyball team in the world, Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh.  Again, he lost, but he put forth a respectable effort.

I’ve stated my general disdain for basketball on numerous occasions.  I just really don’t like the game.  I must say, though, that I love Shaquille O’Neal.  I wish all athletes were like him.
