Biggest Event to Happen to the Holy Game Since a Guy Name Michael Retired for the First Time : The Decision
Ok, so, if you're wondering what the holy game is, it's BASKETBALL! Don't understand? Let me put it to you like this, Basketball is to the USA what Soccer is to the rest of the world. It's the peoples sport. If you still don't get it, watch the movie He Got Game and get back to me.
Now that we've established that, if you don't know why Basketball is the Holy Game, than you might not know what The Decision is either. The Decision is the event that shocked the world of basketball. It was the day that free agent, Lebron James, decided to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers and his home state of Ohio and "take his talents to South Beach." By joining the Miami Heat, Lebron joined forces with superstar Dwayne Wade and the really, really good Chris Bosh. This was an unprecedented move in the history of sports. It was the first time that top young players took it upon themselves to create a "super team". Cleveland was so sad, that people immediately started burning Lebron Jerseys.
So now what stands between Lebron, his homies, and oodles of NBA Championships? Well there's a team in Boston (cause I'm a Laker fan, I don't talk about them) and of course, Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers.
Kobe and Lebron are the two most mythical figures to play the Holy Game since that guy named Michael. (If you don't know who he is, I don't know what to tell you.) The last time the NBA has seen two giant players battle it out with each other was when two guys named Larry and Magic were playing. (Seriously if you don't know what I'm talking about, just stop reading and come back tomorrow.) For the past few years basketball fans, have waited with baited breath, hoping to see Lebron and Kobe meet in the NBA Finals. But it hasn't happened. People are hoping that this is the year, now that Lebron has a super supporting cast.
So if you want to see what I'm talking about, tune in at 5pm on Christmas Day to see the Miami Heat take on the Lakers for the first time since The Decision. That's what I'll be doing.
