Hoping the Celtics can pull this out. I hate the Lakers and Kobe. Ugh.

*whistles Sweet Georgia Brown*

Went to see the Harlem Globetrotters in Vegas in February and despite the venue being half-empty, it was still great. The Washington Generals were appalling, so bad that I think I could play for them (hmm, there's a thought), but the Globetrotters demonstrated some great skills and were really entertaining. Wasn't disappointed at all and the retro hoodie and t-shirt I got have got some entirely justified attention on the tube. Quality stuff.

They're just finishing a brief UK tour and a friend went to see them in Brum and said it was exactly the same: poor crowd, great entertainment for little kids and big-never-really-grown-up-kids. Should probably have mentioned this sooner then really!

I saw the Globetrotters back in the 70's, when Curly Neal was playing.

Great entertainment


Movin' on.............. The Celtics have now tied the series at 2-2

I saw them, probably in the late 80s / early 90s. Absolutely brilliant!

The trouble is that Games 6 & 7 are in SoCal.

I fully expect the series to go to a Game 7

Absolutely shite by the Celtics. WTF is wrong with them? That's 2 blow-outs this series for them. What an up/down team.

Lakers win Game 7

By the way, I'm surprised that Jim Laker was famous enough in California to have a basketball team named after him. Who knew that Cricket was so popular in that area
