I haven’t gotten a chance to watch much of the NBA playoffs this year but from what I have seen, it has led me to cheer against the Los Angeles teams. Even though I live in the area now, I hope both these teams lose their Game 7 matchups.
Growing up in the Bay Area, I’ve grown to despise these two teams and right now, that hatred has is to a level higher than ever before.
For the Lakers, it’s easy. It’s the Lakers. Why would I root for them? Plus, seeing them struggle gives me some joy. And the fact that the punk Ron Artest/Metta World Peace/Crazy Man is returning for tonight’s game, I hope he does something stupid to hurt his team. He’s just all bad news.
And for the Clippers, I used to be OK with them and when Chris Paul joined (one of my favorite players), I was all for it. But now that Lob City has turned into Flop City, I just can’t stand watching them. Stop flopping Blake Griffin!
Plus if both teams lose, then my commute to work is a lot easier. So go lose!
** And as for the Los Angeles Kings, meh. Let them have their fun, but let’s hope they don’t win the Cup.
