Living in LA during the NBA finals can be awful, especially when the Lakers are playing. You see, my favorite NBA team is the Nuggets (long suffering, I know,) OR whoever is beating the Lakers.
For the last two days, leading up to tonight’s game, all we have heard about is the preparations for the riot that will happen after the game. See, Angelinos seem to riot whether we win or lose.
Don’t you want to live here, too?
So I’m rooting for the Celtics. Just because. Actually, I love the city of Boston, so it follows. Kinda. Mostly I’m just enjoying annoying my husband, oldest son, and other friends that love the Lakers. At least my youngest is his mother’s son and is rooting for the Celtics with me. Go Green!
The thing is, at this point in the series, I’m beginning to believe the conspiracy theorists about each finals series being fixed. Let’s do the math:
Court side seat to tonight’s game: (as of today on a radio report,) $65,000
Number of courtside seats: 198
Approximate take for courtside seats ONLY: 12.8 MILLION DOLLARS.
Guess on nosebleed seats: $500 each.
Guess on profit: 18 bajillion. (totally a number)
So why wouldn’t the NBA want each series to go to 7 games? I’d line my pockets, too, for that kind of bank.
If the stats this year prove true, the team that has been leading after the first quarter will win the game. (Go Celtics!) Let’s try another stat: any finals series between the Celtics and Lakers to go to 7 games have been won by the Celtics. (Go Celtics!)
But really I don’t care. I’m much more interested in the boys of summer at this point in June. NBA owners can line their pockets all they want, I’d much rather spend my day with these dudes:
Kendra is sick of the NBA. Are you surprised?
