FreeDarko Pick: Father and Son Edition
Living for the weekend. This is how it shakes out and what you should be tuned to.
TONIGHT: Miami/New Jersey. Something very unfortunate happened over the past few years, which is that I think we have all forgotten about Richard Jefferson, and how important to the league he is, not to mention how FD--in an underdog way--he is. This may surprise some given his b!tch-like nature and his kind of high voice, but make no mistake, RJ is a bad dude. Watch closely, his badness is DECEPTIVE. Additionally, I don't think we've seen a full season yet of the deranged Vince-JKidd-RJ BIG 3 in action. Have we? Tonight against a sluggish Miami squad, we will witness endless possibilities...
SATURDAY: You know where I'll be. Magic vs. Timberwolves. Sure, I could cry this season away and drown in my own tears. But as KG becomes the disgruntled Yoda of the league, I get pleasure out of watching him pass the torch to the young fellas. And in this contest, the heir apparent is none other than God's Son. Sagebrush is in the air and the sky is a purplish hue. This event is going to be spiritual.
SUNDAY: Nuggets/Bobcats. Nobody knows what's going to HaPpEn!?!?! Bodies will be flying all over the court. Morrison will be glaring at Brevn Knight. Wallace and Melo will be schooling each other all day. These are two teams who are equal in terms of insane mental immaturity, except it should be noted that the Nuggets are on average about 5 years older than the 'Cats.
UPDATE: on some SI JINX SH!T, RJ GOES DOWN!!!....but forreal, speaking of SI, thanks to Kelly Dwyer for quoting Big Shoals on the Jamison profile over at Sports Illustrated Dot Com. Coincidence?
