FD's League Pass Intimacy
I learned a valuable lesson last night about this nascent routine of ours. The truth is, there are FD match-ups, but they depend primarily on the presence of FD teams. So while part of me wants to recommend Spurs/Suns, I can't front like I'll be watching. When this site first dared to believe, this pairing was as symbolic as it got. Now, it's a Spurs team that's not so boring, never stimulating, gorging itself on a twice-broken machine. The Suns can't be the Amare show, they aren't Diaw's Children no more, and unfortunately Reborn Jalen Rose isn't going to be the new anthem.
Instead, I invite you to direct your eyes unto Celtics/Bobcats, which has the potential to resemble THE MOST IMPORTANT GAME IN THE HISTORY OF OUR LEANINGS. I'd like to remind Simmons that there's a basic difference between Duns, Jr. and Rudy Gay: both may be all about potential, but one is a tease, the other an embryonic shimmering. Celtics/Bobcats will be a ton of young players, all a year or two away from their expiration date, suddenly finding themselves capable of peforming in an NBA-style environment. That, my friend, is no illusion--it's that show where you get to see your grandchildren fight off aliens. And be damn proud of it.
