Ugh. Screw you Stern.
Am I the only one that cannot stand a single player from either team? If someone said Celtics vs Lakers in the finals, it's something I would tune into... in the 1980s.
Magic, Bird, Kareem, Walton? Hell yeah. Plenty of players to love on those teams.
But now? So many unlikable players on both franchises, and this is supposed to be "good" for the NBA?
Mind you, today is the one-year anniversery of when Kobe demanded to be traded from the Lakers. Not only that, but it was around this time the Celtics were screaming bloody murder after tanking their entire season in disgusting fashion and not getting a top two pick - only to be outdone by the Heat this season.
The influx of bandwagon fans is going to be vomit inducing. The same Boston fans that were chanting "Kobe for MVP" in the Boston arena, will be the same ones yelling "Beat LA" now.
The NBA: Where "all for ratings, all for egoes" happens.
