The Class of 2009

I’m a little tipsy at the moment, so forgive me for any glaring, obvious mistakes or hilarities that may spew out of my mouth (fingers?).

So I spent a good two hours watching the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame induction ceremony tonight, and boy oh boy did it get me all teary-eyed and nostalgic. I’d almost forgotten how awesome the NBA used to be back in the ’90s, before weasels like LeBron and the like came around. Michael Jordan was friggin’ crying when he came onto the stage to give his speech, and all the highlight reels of David Robinson, John Stockton, Jerry Sloan, and everyone else made me so happy as a basketball fan. And seeing everyone else like Scottie, Tim Duncan, Kukoc in the audience made me so giddy.

So thanks, Michael. MJ. You were practically my hero growing up, and thanks for all the basketball awesomeness you graced the world with in your career.

Which reminds me…NBA season is coming soon!!! In like two months, but soon!!!! 🙂
