When I was in college, my dear friend Caitlin and I visited her hometown of San Antonio for spring break. Part of the week-long indoctrination to all things Texas was a Spurs game. To ensure I got the most out of my first NBA experience, Caitlin taught me everything I could possibly want to know about the Spurs, along with other important NBA info, like the Lakers are evil. And since when learning new things it's important to make comparisons to things you already know, I thought of the Spurs as the UK of the NBA. This logically makes the Lakers the Duke of the NBA. (In case you're curious, UofL and Tennessee are more like the Rockets/Mavericks in that they are local annoyances.)
Needless to say I was not happy a few months ago when Duke won the NCAA tournament. I mean, if UK's not going to win, at least not Duke. (Or UofL, Tennessee, UNC, Kansas, Indiana...) That's not too much to ask, right? Right!
So Duke won the college championship and tonight the Lakers could win the NBA finals. I'm not one for apocalyptic predictions because A. They creep me out and B. I just don't buy them (I do buy the Bible's "Not knowing the day or the hour." That seems to be the most likely scenario.). But if the Lakers win tonight, we will live in a world that has Duke and the Lakers as reigning champions. *gag* I figure this is as likely to kick start the end times as any Mayan calendar.
