My Favorite Things (2015 Playoff Remix)

“Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles…”

Wait, stop. This is the 2015 NBA Playoff Remix

Ujiri curses and first team All-Defense
Head coaches fired while Rondo is sitting
Rivers gets flowing only in Spring
These are a few of the playoff things
Paul Pierce has daggers is Tim Duncan leaving
Al Horford finishes the Warriors are splashing
Game winning bank shots Lebron is still King
These are a few of the playoff things
When the fouls come, when the game stops
And DeAndre’s hacked
I simply remember the playoff things
And then I don’t feel so bad

It is, after all, what ultimately counts. I like to call that line Teams That Matter.  For the record, a team that matters is one that is capable of going on a deep playoff run and a deep playoff run is making it to either Conference Finals. In our 2014 season preview, I predicted that there were maybe 8 teams that matter. That leaves 22 teams that don’t matter.  As a fan of a team that doesn’t count this season (LA Lakers), I’ve come up with a list of ways to enjoy the NBA when your favorite team doesn’t matter.
