Sorry about being MIA from the forums during these playoffs. I’ve stepped up in my company’s positions and I’ve been swarmed with work. It was to be expected but unfortunately that means you have to give up a few things. Once I get more comfortable in my new role, I’ll be back. But for now I need to focus on work rather than BM stuff. I’ll always be in the club though, lunch is a weekly listen for me.
Anyways, I know I’m a bit late here but I just wanted to say that I’m super proud of this Mavs season. They overachieved and game 7 against the Suns is an all time win for me. Embarrassing them was SOOOO satisfying. I already found CP3 annoying and now I can’t stand the guy. I used to respect Booker’s game but now I can’t stand him either. Crazy what a playoff series does to your feelings of another team.
I’m looking forward to seeing how they improve the team. Obviously the Mavs lack size, that was always going to be what killed them. And I think wing depth is another key position, particularly someone off the bench. But I’m excited, this definitely feels like 2003 all over again. This time we have Luka at a MUCH more advanced stage than Dirk had in that WCF run. Go Mavs!
It sucks that I’m not able to watch the show live (my investment in the NFL and other things) but I’m gonna try to do so going forward as much as I can. I felt like the first couple episodes were a bit underwhelming but man, these last two have ramped it to some of the best of the series and TV in general. The tension in the silence when Logan and Ken are sitting next to each other was absolutely amazing. Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong are like two elite tennis players just going back and forth, trading shot after shot during a rally in the championship match.
