I may be a petite gal, but I love my basketball—I love the NBA! And no it’s not because of the men (though I love to watch them too ) Ahaha.
I remember the first basketball game I went to, I was about eight, nine years old, maybe. My father has always been a huge basketball fan, and his team has always been the Boston Celtics and so, the Boston Celtics was the first team I’ve ever seen in person! So yes, that means that I bleed green! Oh-yes-I-do! Proudly. Anyway, I’ll never forget that day because it was one of the best days of my life ! Especially the part where the camera man put my brother and I on the screen, us only, but my father thought he was in it too and was literally stroking and fixing his hair for the camera but they cut him off! Ahahahaha! Oh man. We laughed so hard! I still remember it like it was yesterday, I swear!
I’m twenty-seven years old today and I still love my basketball! No I can’t play, but I for sure know my stuff ! And I bleed green, but I for sure also love and enjoy just as much, watching players such as Trey Young, Kyrie Irving, Zion Williamson, Lebron James, Anthony Davis, Chris Middleton, Giannis Antekumpo, Ja Morant, Donovan Mitchell, Damian Lillard, Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Pascal Siakam, Marc Gasol, Luca Doncic, Porzingis, Boban Marjonovic (funny as hell!) must I go on?!! I love seeing all of them play! Especially my guys Jason Tatum, Kemba Walker, Gordon Hayward, Jaylen Brown, Theis and Smart … all of them!! It’s kind of funny actually, I truly understand why men are so crazy about sports and even sometimes put it before anything else in the world, even their own wives! It’s literally an obsession, and I get it because I’m obsessed, as well! Everything about basketball keeps me hooked. You’d think I was hypnotized the way I keep my eyes on the screen! I can not and will not miss a game for anything in the world ! Okay I lied, maybe for nursing school or work, but besides that, STAY OUT OF MY WAY. Do not ever try to change the channel on me , don’t get in my way, don’t talk about something else , and matter a fact, just don’t breathe ! I’m being sarcastic of course , but I’m saying, either enjoy it with me , or stay out of my way! When it comes to my games, to “Inside The NBA on TNT”, to First Take, etc., you don’t exist. Nothing else matters ! It’s so crazy. I’m so passionate about basketball , it’s like a damn drug. Especially now during the playoffs, one game after the other is like a dose of greatness after another. Not only do I get to watch one live game, but four in one day?! It’s just the best thing ever for me! No matter the mood, no matter who or what, they cannot tame the attention and reservations I make for basketball. Especially when my favorite teams are playing, like the Celtics, Lakers, Blazers, Clippers , etc. , I swear, my soul ignites! Only basketball can get me out of depression and out of my bed and literally out of my sofa to jump and yell in joy!
Basketball is my sweet love, and I can’t wait to see who will win the Eastern Conference Finals, and the 2020 NBA Championship!
My predictions: Celtics for ECF, Lakers for WCF, and A Celtics vs Boston Championship Finals!! FOR KOBE, for I know he’ll love to see it ! 🙏🏼🤍🌹🏀🏀🏀
