LeBron vs. Durant
I woke up this morning (in a house without power) and thought to myself, I’m going to see Game 1 of LeBron James and the Miami Heat vs. Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder for the NBA Championship.
At many points in this series the following young men will all be on the court simultaneously: LeBron, Kevin, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Shane Battier and Udonis Haslem. This is a series that any sports fan can get excited about. It’s a series that we should have at least 2 or 3 more chances to see over the next few years. A rivalry to compare to Magic & Bird (hopefully).
For a guy like me that’s loved the NBA since he can remember, that’s loved LeBron James since he first appeared on ESPN, that’s loved Kevin Durant since Greg Oden got drafted above him, this is Christmas and birthdays and “sorry your puppy died, here’s some ice cream” all rolled into one. This series should be epic. Get your popcorn.
