New NBA season has kicked off, and thankfully I now have Sky Sports Extra so can catch some games and highlights. Only problem:
Look at the show times!.

9 a.m. on a Saturday morning – that’s criminal!

“You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America’s Cup, France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn’t want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in America are named ‘Bush’, ‘Dick’, and ‘Colon.’ Need I say more?”

Stop laughing at the back! Yes, tonight we will be entertained and dazzled by the baller skills of The Original Harlem Globetrotters.

Hey it’s the closest I’m gonna get to an NBA game for quite a while, alright.

I’ve long preferred the hoops to the ..ehh… goals.. and being starved of NBA action is killing me, watching grainy 30-sec clips via the NBA website is NOT enough.

So my parents to pity on me (and are inflicting this on Louise) and bought as tickets for the Harlem Globetrotters on April 15th. Should be fun if not wholly basketball related. Can’t wait!

Just. It was a tight series between the Lakers and the Kings, but my team held on. They will go into the final series as favourties to 3-peat. I’m worried though. The Nets story is one that you couldn’t write, and despite the dominance of the Western Conference you just never know: NBA.com: FINALS 2002.

Or why “I like to be in America”

Reason #14: NBA.

I’ve mentioned this before I’m sure, but I REALLY miss my NBA since it moved to Sky Sports Extra here in the UK. As a Telewest customer I can’t get the channel at all. The time I spent in San Francisco was great, I actually had the choice of which game to watch, unbelievable!

Anyway, things are getting tense in the Conference Finals, my ‘showtime’ team are being held the Kings in what looks like being a tight series. Granted I can get a lot of info from the web, but as the NBA is very rarely covered here in the UK I miss all the little extra’s you get from news bulletins, et al.

In saying that, I’m confident the Lakers will brush past the Kings and into the final, I mean if the Kings coach can be heard to say “I just wish one of them would grow four inches” in connection to his two active guards they are obviously the weaker team. Now if someone could just knobble Chris Webber I’d be much happier…

Note: I’m actually very happy with Telewest, especially the nice people at BlueYonder, but PLEASE GET SKYSPORTS EXTRA!!!
