I think Jerry Maguire said it best in the pivotal scene at the end of the 1996 movie when he said:
“We live in a cynical world. A cynical world. And we work in a business of tough competitors. I love you. You… complete me. “
Unlike Dorothy, the Bobcats do not have us at hello anymore (nor do they complete me).
I get more and more of a feeling that if I am going to look for a silver lining with these guys I’m going to have to turn into a cynical little blogger that has to be sarcastic and poke fun at the team’s failures in order to find something I can claim is positive to write about.
Then the guys give us a game like they did Sunday night against the New Jersey Nets. Now I am fully aware that the Nets are not exactly challenging, but for the Bobcats to have been competitive, and actually lead—for a moment I thought they were really playing good basketball.
Of course that Deron Williams guy had to screw everything up with his franchise record 57 points (darn him). Then again, Deron Williams is an elite player and was on the court with a bunch of guys that are far from elite. He should have been able to do something like that.
