Friday Favorites: Swish

And now a Friday Favorite from Dan :)

In honor of the riveting NBA finals that have me so hooked, today’s post focuses on the world of the NBA. As pretty die hard Knick fans, Steph and I have a passionate and ingrained hatred of all things Miami Heat. This dates back to the mid 90’s and all the classic Knick/Heat playoff series (F You PJ Brown AND Dick Bavetta for holding back Miami’s bench.) We rolled our eyes at the ridiculous farce of LeBron’s “Decision” and probably would have burned our #23 jerseys if we had them. The collusion years ago of LeBron, Wade, and Bosh to team up together and their totally fake free agent meetings with other teams that were all for show only strengthened our hatred. So for the first time in my life, I find myself passionately rooting for a Dallas sport team.

However, our main allegiance will always remain with our Knicks no matter how many times James Dolan will let us down. This past season was a good step forward after a decade of misery, and the coming years with Amar'e and Carmelo have every Knick fan hoping for a championship run of their own. It should even lead to a few more classic Knick/Heat playoff rivalries. If it happens, I hope Jeff Van Gundy will wrap himself around LeBron’s leg for old time’s sake, even if he’s only working TV at the time.

Next year Steph and I are already planning on few road trips to coincide with the Knicks schedule. There are definitely a few states we can knock off (Oklahoma for one) while going around rooting for a team that is finally relevant again. We can’t wait!
