This is a big weekend! My daughter Chrystal is getting married and I will be giving her away. I am not sure what sort of emotions I will have but it’s an exciting time. I am looking forward to it with reverence and humility. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Justin Curry to be. Peace and blessings from Dad!
The Celtics won game 1 of the Finals last night. It was a nice game and the series should be an exciting one. But did ya’ll get a load of Paul Pierce’s act last night? This dude goes down like he was shot after bumpting into Kendrick Perkins, is carried off by pallbearers into a wheelchair and carted off to the lockeroom, only to come back a couple minutes later slashing 3 pointers all over the place. What the hell? First of all Paul Pierce aka The Truth is my man! He is a career Celtic and I am happy that he is in this position. When he first went down I thought it would be a shame if he were really hurt and couldn’t compete from start to finish in The Finals. However, I have to admit that when I saw him in that wheelchair, for some reason I felt it was overdone and I said out loud, “Paul’s gonna be back in this game. He’s fine! He’s gonna walk out of the lockeroom to an ovation and set it off!” Of course he did and the rest is history. Now people are trying to compare his performance to that of Willis Reed back in the day. I agree with Jalen Rose who appeared on ESPN’s First Take opposite Skip Bayless when he said that Paul was not Willis Reed but Keyser Soze. See ya Sunday for Game 2!
