I am a minor sports nut. I love:
The Buffs (all sports)
CC Tigers Hockey
See a pattern there? All Colorado teams, that is where my athletic heart will always be. So when I get a break from my busy schedule, I watch a game or two especially if one of the above teams are playing.
The Nuggets were knocked out early in the NBA playoffs by the Spurs who went on a rampage and tore the Jazz a new one. Yes, there is no question who is the best from the West. But last night, I watched a game that ranks up there with:
Lebron James did what every superstar needed to do, he took over. In the second half of the fourth quarter and in both overtimes, James went on a shooting frenzy and knocked down 29 of the last 30 points for his team with 25 points consecutively. He dunked, blocked, stole and drove like a man on a mission. The gentle team player had to turn into a scoring monster to save his team. A man that is by far the best in the league. I was on the edge of my seat reading the live feed from the web and was just as loud as if I was watching the events unfold on television. I would love to see the final quarter of action but I need not to worry. What happened last night will be logged in sporting history like so many other great moments. King James, thank you for a great show.
