Now that the Sixers have made the Playoffs, we can put on our Carnavale! hats and dance around naked the rest of the season. No one is particularly excited for the playoffs (OFFSEASON 2012!) but we can at least enjoy even more meaningless games leading up to our inevitable demise. The final two games will get that much more thrillinger with news that Andre Iguodala, Elton Brand, and Louis Williams will get some vacation time.
Andre hurt his leg (where on his leg? seemed like everywhere) in yesterday's clincher over the Nets and Sugar Bears needs to rest his paws now and again, but Lou? It feels like he's been on the team since the Land Before Time but he's only 25 and averages 26 minutes per game. Does he need to rest? No. But the idea of seeing two Bossless games prior to PLAYOFFS BOSS TIME REGGIE MILLER FIRST MILLION CLOSER is pretty exciting. Like, I don't know that I've ever been more excited.
I'm spitballing here, but a lineup of Jrue Holiday, Jodie Meeks, Evan Turner, Thaddeus Young, and Nikola Vucevic really gets me going. Expect to see a whole lot of Sam Young and Craig Brackins. Don't you wish we had a backup point guard? Me too. Somebody get Antonio Daniels on the phone. My engine's about to get super revved. The idea that I'm more excited about two games of bustacular basketball than I am for the Playoffs says something.
RELEASE THE BRACKINS.
