The NBA Playoffs: Wake Me When It’s The Finals


 Correct me if I’m wrong, but are the NBA Playoffs a sham or a charade? Are the NBA Playoffs a shame to the game or a waste of time to this great sports pastime? Or all of the above? Compared to the Men’s NCAA Tournament, the NBA Playoffs are a disgrace. In the early rounds, the Wizards or the Wolverines may win a game or two, but will they really win a series? Do they even have an outside chance of getting to the Conference Finals, much less the Finals?

On the eve of the Men’s NCAA Tournament, no one, and I do mean NO ONE, picked UCONN to win it in the fashion that they did. And that’s what makes college ball so much more exciting and exhilarating and intoxicating; the NBA Playoffs are just an excuse for commercials and revenue. The more games they play, the more money the league and the owners make. Nuff said.

All of God’s creation has value and worth. No person is wasted or unwanted. But in the NBA Playoffs, we are sold a bill of goods; 16 teams vie for a crown that only a handful of teams really have a legitimate shot at. So wake me up when it’s the Finals, and shake me when the conference finals roll around. The way I see it, if I watch these early rounds, I may be put to sleep, so why should I stay up when I can go to bed early?

Wake me when the NBA is ready to play some real ball.
