Gentlemen, start your engines!!! The NBA season is upon us. After a very brief respite, our beloved cagers are here once again to provide us our daily dose of basketball medicine to drive away the thoughts of this COVID misery. Truly a wonderful medicine for these difficult times.
It may be too late for the Warriors to mount a serious challenge for a post season slot, but Steph’s return has started to excite the Bay Area crowd once again. Watch the Warriors weave their magic next season.
The NBA pre-season is over. The gladiators of the cage arena are done experimenting with line-up rotations, trial offensives, defensive innovations and fancy new individual moves. It is time for the real deal. Come one, come all, it’s time to rock and roll!!!
The teams are so competitive, and the playoff match-ups will be crucial. Each team must have a ready foil for the type of weaponry employed by their adversaries. Be it a long-range missile, a fast-firing machine gun, a big battering ram or a small silent bladed weapon up close, the defense must be prepared with an answer.
The Toronto – Golden State match-up has been a fun and enlightening series to watch. It provided us great new insights of a new cage kingdom unfolding. Here’s a toast to the NBA’s 2018-2019 season. And a toast too, to our new champions, the Toronto Raptors.
Will this be the end of the Warriors’ dynasty? Will they come back for another run next year? My sense is that we haven’t heard the last from these heroic Warriors yet. As the great late coach Rudy Tomjanovich said: “Don’t ever underestimate the heart of a champion.”
