Friends, it has been a long time. I have been in slumber as my physical form left the NBA. Now we have been rejoined on the spiritual plane and the oneness has brought new consciousness as your voices came to me in the night. I am here. We are one.
But where is here? How did we get here?
Ah yes, it is all coming back to me now.
The Warriors blew a 3-1 lead in the finals.
73-9. Home court. Even I could not have forseen it.
Just another quiet offseason friends. Not at all like the last few huge offseasons like Lebron returning to Cleveland after leaving to form a Super Team. Because anyone who leaves to form a Super Team, especially an MVP, we now know gets villified Surely no one would do that again.
I knew something powerful had to awake me.
So where are we?
BEHOLD! I bring to you a season so rich, so full of intrigue, you can't help but wait for the ending. But, as our dear friends in Philly know, it's a process. Or, it was. Wait.
BEHOLD! The NBA awaits. Let us not rush to the end. For endings are never known. Surprises abound, just ask the Heat tho won not 3, not 4, not 5 titles.
Yes amigos, the story will surround two franchises. But others look to make waves.
One says goodbye to a legend.
But let us not forget how close they were to home court last year.
Another team hopes to get healthy
While another two prepare to grow
An upstart from the North hopes to win just two more games vs. the Cavaliers upon the return of their big man
And a young coach has his team get a year better with the addition of a new leader
And a proud franchise flails
Meanwhile, three of our own with direct influence behind the scenes in Toronto, Milwaukee and Philadelphia. Exciting times for those of us with history here. New processes abound in today's NBA.
What else will the future bring my friends?
I can't spoil it for you.
But, I can tell you to expect drama, surprises, burritos and good waves.
Let us NBA!
