The 2012 NBA Finals begin tonight. There will be much trash talking. No championship series would be complete without it.
However, to paraphrase an old saying, it ain’t trash talk if you follow through. Witness:
I won’t get started about my disappointment in my Boston Celtics. Or in the fact that we have a weather-themed NBA Finals this year. [deep sigh]
Edited to add: My disappointment is minor compared to that of Seattle basketball fans. Their former Supersonics are now the Oklahoma City Thunder, and playing in the NBA Finals. My condolences, y’all.
