I loved the Avengers, I loved that movie so much that I saw it twice, on Friday and Saturday both in 3-D and still wanted to see it again. It couldn’t possibly be as good on Blue Ray as it is in a theatre full of hundreds of people cheering and clapping but that will have to tide me over until Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 come out later this year. The same goes for The Miami Heat v.s. Oklahoma City Thunder re-match. The Miami Heat, a group of Superstars banded together to take on threats they couldn’t handle alone (namely the Celtics kept putting LeBron and Wade out to pasture) won a well – deserved Championship this spring. All but one of the 5 game series really came down to the last 2 minutes and love him or hate him, LeBron winning a championship was one of the best sports stories of 2012. Their first meeting of the 2012-2013 season won’t be as exciting as that finals series, but as a gift, it’ll tide me over until they meet again in the finals this spring.
Chicago Bulls v.s. Houston Rockets : Old Monopoly game 8:00 p.m. EST
L.A. Clippers v.s. Denver Nuggets : a new Maybach (But you live in New York City) 10:30 EST
The final game of the NBA day is just your classic gift that doesn’t make sense. A yacht when you live in Nashville Tennessee, a snow mobile when you live in Miami, and a Maybach when you live in New York and can barely drive the thing over 50 miles per hour. The L.A. Clippers are one of the hottest teams in the NBA right now, with marketable stars (Blake Griffin is everywhere) and a huge market. But what’s the point of a Christmas showcase with them and the lowly small market, no star having Denver Nuggets? The Clippers are a great team, and may even make the Western Conference finals (no one is beating Oklahoma City) but they aren’t any fun going on at 10:30 against scrubs.
