I only call myself a Jazz fan because I live in Utah.
If there was a Thunder/Heat game on, or a Clippers/Lakers game on then I'd watch that over a Jazz/Wizards game or a similar game. I want the Jazz to win. The more they win, the better. If they played the Thunder or the Heat or whatever, I'd root for the Jazz to win.
I just don't find them as entertaining as other teams.
I'm not saying I don't like watching them, because I do. But I don't like watching them as much as I do other teams. Does this make me a bad fan or am I just normal?
You know what I think would make a team more entertaining to watch? If players wore shoes on their hands and had to play ball that way.
Oh... wait a second...
Marc Gasol is hopefully starting a new trend in the NBA by batting the ball out of Favor's hands with his shoe. It looks like a foul was called... but really shouldn't the real call have been a kicked ball violation?
There are a million puns and word play I could make out of this and I might as well get them out of the way early.
- He put his best foot forward on this play.
- I got a kick out of watching this.
- He's a shoe in for the all defensive team.
- Marc Gasol has no sole
By "a million" I mean "four" but still, puns are fun.
I'm starting to wonder if this has ever been done before this in the history of the league. Obviously, shoes have come off and plays have picked them up. But has a player actually used his shoe to try to steal the ball? Maybe this should become a thing. The positives out weigh the negatives.
- Extra reach when holding a shoe
- No risk of jamming fingers
- Looks funny
- Adds skill to the game
- No more broken hands
- Really hard to "roll a wrist"
- Dribbling would be funner to watch and could be more interesting
- Blocking would be easier
- Shoe sales would go up
- Hands would smell after the game
- Looks funny
Looks funny can be positive and negative.
So, here's to hoping that shoe wielding becomes a popular accessory to use in the NBA.
