Dropping Dimes Two on Two Tourney: Round 2, Games 3 and 4

Posted by Alvin Lai Categories: Site Features,

Flash in retro uniThe next couple of games in our tourney are going up a bit early due to me having Father’s Day commitments tomorrow. To all the dads and families out there, have a wonderful day. Just finished watching Tiger Woods wrap up his third round…great stuff. Good luck tomorrow, Tiger.

The Celtics meeting the Lakers again in the Finals was supposed to wax nostalgia non-stop, but the ball has been pretty flat and ugly. With the Lakers blowing that huge lead in Game 4, the Celtics have a chance to clinch the series. The Lakers’ homecourt has been taken away before; Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls won three straight at the Forum to win their first championship back in 1991. I have heard the notion that MJ would never have let his team blow that lead in the Finals, and I agree. The Kobe to MJ comparisons will be cooled for a while. Here’s hoping the Lakers regroup and extend the series.

Searched the archives and found a picture of Dwyane Wade in an old Miami Heat uniform. Flash is in action this week.
