As I watch the NBA playoffs of 2012 I continue to hear a common theme: Injuries to superstars. As a Rockets fan, as cold hearted as this may sound, I don't give a damn about anyone losing their superstar or any other player to injury. We have have injuries to key players and we just keep ongoing about our business as if nothing happened. But these other teams who are "struggling" in the playoffs because of "injury" are getting passes and it makes me sick because we never got that excuse from the media.
1st its the Bulls losing Derrick Rose to an ACL injury. Then soon after that they lose Joakim Noah to injury. Then it's Iman Shumpert and Baron Davis going down to knee injuries. In the second round Chris Bosh goes down with an abdominal strain and now the media is giving them a pass against the Pacers. Now it has been reported that D Wade is suffering through a knee injury. I am so happy his pansy ass is hurt, but it pisses me off because they are getting sympathy. The guy is at least still playing and when you get on the court you better play and play hard. Weak ass excuse and I ain't giving them any kind of pass. They can kiss my ass!
Another team that is getting injury excuses is the punk ass Clippers. First they use the Chauncey Billups injury as a crutch when the Grizzlies were getting in that ass. Now they wanna use Griffin and Paul being hurt as an excuse to why they are getting raped by Tony Parker and the Spurs. This is bull shit because they are still playing! If you play then you really can't make no excuses.
Again, as a Rockets fan I will never feel sympathy for teams who have injuries to anyone because when we were going through it year after year we were still getting shat upon. If you ask me, with the exception of the Bulls, they all deserve these "injuries". Clippers and Knicks deserve it because Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony politicked their way to "bigger markets". Miami deserves it because they decided three pussies are better than one.
Shot out to the Pacers and the Spurs. Those are what you call basketball TEAMS. Not teams with "superstars" who's only hope is getting "superstar calls" all the way to the FInals. TEAMS win rings, not individuals.
