The worst thing for people in our business is when nothing interesting is going on. Want evidence? Check out how media outlets start rolling out crazy ideas and concepts that happen to coincide with the “slow” parts of the sports calendar, or how on a slow news day they’ll just rehash dead stories and try to breathe new life into them (i.e. Pacman Jones or Brett Favre).
So in that regard, we’ve been loving this NBA season. From Opening Night to the very last day of the regular season, there was always a compelling storyline going on, and that has continued into the postseason. Whether it was Kobe, Chris Paul, the Celtics, LeBron, the Western Conference playoff race, the tragi-comedies of the Knicks and Heat, the Shaq/Kidd/Gasol trades, or the Rockets’ win streak, there was always something — a player, a game, a play, a moment, a move or a trend — worth talking about.
