It's Friday! We have made it to the end of a really wierd weather week here. Usually after one day under 50, Beverly is longing for summer. After this week, I'm ready to join her. It's been a couple of weeks since I have played golf. I think I'm going into withdrawal.
I didn't just sit and watch the Mavs' game last night, but I had it on as I was doing other things. They made my day! It's always good to see Kobe and the Lakers get beat. And not just beat. They whupped the Lakers -- and made them like it. 114-95. And that was after letting up a little in the last few minutes.
I love watching a pouty premodonna getting beat. In the NBA, that would include Kobe, Shaq and Tim Duncan.
The Mavs are playing as well as I can ever remember a team playing. They are awesome! There's lots of talk in the Metroplex about Dirk deserving MVP. I would have no problem jumping on that bandwagon. I wonder if he really is, though. As much as I don't like Kobe, I would think if you took him away from the Lakers -- they are toast. Steve Nash is improving on his MVP numbers, but maybe the voters are ready for someone else after two straight years of Nash. So why not Dirk?
