    I may have to get a little excited by pro sports again. It was Akeem's dream that did it last time.

    Don't. You'll only be disappointed when Golden State gets done with them.

    Well, you're both going to be disappointed when the NBA giftwraps another title for LeBron James. The NBA is fixed worse than the WWE. Since 1980 there have been exactly 11 teams to win the championship:

    Lakers
    Celtics
    Bulls
    Rockets
    Pistons
    Heat
    Spurs
    Mavs
    Warriors
    Cavs
    Sixers

    Take away the Cavs, Warriors, Mavs, and Sixers and only 7 teams have won the title in almost 40 years. No other league can claim that. Also, only 1 team seeded lower than 4th won and that was the Rockets. Speaking of which, the Rockets wouldn't have any titles if Jordan didn't go on sabbatical.

    Dream on, it's good for your imagination.

    Nobody could touch those Bulls teams. The Rockets, as good as they were, wouldn't have touched them. They would have pretty much ran the 90's.

    Tonight's headlines:

    The Rockets did not just lose. That would have been better. This was far more inglorious, far more distasteful. It will be much more difficult to forget.

    They surrendered. They were hit, and crumbled like an old lawn chair. They were not just whipped; they were humiliated, coming within one point of the worst post-season beatdown in franchise history.

    About what I expected but just took a game or two longer to get there.
