I don't get it.
Yeah, I witnessed a monster performance of sports mastery last night.
And yeah, it was pretty spectacular.
I want to like this guy, or at least not hate on him, and I am actually a new convert to this sport. This is, in fact, my VIRGIN season. And certainly I am not into the idea of throwing a beverage at ANY player when they exit the floor, Boston fans ought to be a bit embarrassed about that one (sorry, Eric, but it's true).
Now, I started to get my fancy tickled by this game of hoops just as the above-mentioned Superstar was giving the big 'FU' to what will become 'My Team', the Cleveland Cavaliers. But I got over it even though it was a douchey move in the way he did it. And I don't have that much invested in in the NBA yet, though I am liking it as my Number 2 Sport. The NFL will always be my wife. The NBA can ONLY be my secret lover. EVER.
And this guy has done nothing to me personally. NOTHING.
But can someone explain to me why I WANT to see him fail?
It makes NO sense to me whatsoever. I feel somewhat sub-human for this reaction. Sucks.
