Almost There

I have begrudgingly begun to accept the fact that LeBron James is on the verge of actually winning an NBA Championship ring.  To be completely candid with you, I hate the simple thought of it.  The thing that really irks me about this practically imminent world of the existence is that I (and I think I’m in the majority… somewhere around a 65/35 split) was so sure it was going to happen differently.

About midway through the 4th quarter of Game 7, I knew the Heat were going to be playing in the Finals against OKC.  The Celtics finally just broke.  All engines firing, full-steam ahead.  Boom.  Over.  But I thought I had an ace up my sleeve.  After the first two incredible rounds and then the dismantling of the Spurs, I thought OKC was sure to bring the thunder to South Beach.  Bonus pun.

Cronise Surmises–OKC Edition

I don’t have too much to surmise about this week due to my NBA Playoffs fever.  It’s getting worse (better?) every night that passes and I honestly don’t care if I recover.  Haha, but in all seriousness… either tonight or Saturday night, it’s all going to boil over.  And if things go a certain way… well, let’s just say that I’m going to be celebrating like it’s Saint Patty’s Day.  For a solid week.  Followed by another period of partying—in celebration or in celebration.

Let’s do work, real quick. Continue reading

The Beginning of a Revolution

Should have tossed this up in the wee hours…

In case you missed it, the OKC Thunder CRUSHED the LA Lakers 106-90 to win the series 4 games to 1.  They’ll advance to the final four to play the San Antonio Spurs.

Maybe the Spurs are the most dominant force as of late, but it’s barely arguable that the Thunder are the most exciting.

Kind of impossible to draw a lot of conclusions, but the Thunder already look focused on the next task at hand.  And Kobe… well… let’s just say it probably won’t be pleasant to be within 5 feet of his presence for the next few days.
