NBA Playoffs

The NBA playoffs have started and Doug and Cal have been trading basketball facts back and forth all week.  Cam has started watching as well.  The hype really began earlier this month as the Golden State Warriors closed in on the 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls record breaking season of 72 wins and 10 loses.  Golden State accomplished that at the last game of the season setting the new mark at 73-9.

I am not sure that Cal or Doug wanted them to break it, but they enjoyed watching all of the games that led up to it.  Before the playoffs started there was also a fascinating 30 for 30 on ESPN about the Orlando Magic team that Shaq played on many years ago.  I even liked that one as it talked about local Plymouth basketball player, Scott Skiles.  He was one of three basketball stars from the NLC that played in the NBA in the mid 1980s and early 1990s.

I don't know if I'll watch much of the playoffs this year, but I am glad that the guys enjoy it.  It gives them a lot to talk about and after the first round usually a lot of good games.  Haven't asked them yet who they want to win the championship, but I did hear Cameron talk about making a bracket.
