As we are now knee-deep in first-round action, I find only one series to be truly lackluster: our own. I understand why this has happened. The Bucks are a venomous creature of boredom in every imaginable facet. So the point of this thread is not to talk about why our series is the lamest of all, but rather to create a type of support group for those - like myself - who feel like they're having an affair with other basketball teams. The first-round has been an unimaginable joy so far: starting with the Lakers / Suns series, which we could talk about for days; San Ant. v. the Kings v. the Artest + Reefer's First Day of School + the Brent Barry shot; the Rise of the Clippers and the growing potential for LA v. LA, + Kenyon's official collapse + Denver's open admission that their powder blue road unis are terrible + the struggles of Anthony; Miami exposed in the first-round by entertaining, well-coached [no longer Baby] Bulls; VC and crew also revealed as frauds by an Indiana team that suddenly can see the ECF; LeBron v. Wiz, aka the sloppiest basketball i've ever watched, like two kids on a disasterous first date. Only Dallas v. Memphis has failed to live up to expectation so far, in my mind, even though the Problems of Pau are mildly interesting. And then there's our series defined by two words: viciously boring. And I can't help feeling disappointed. Even I can't get excited about the Pistons right now. Once the semis get underway, the entire nation is going to say in unison: "Oh, right. I forgot about the Pistons." We will not be the It Team at all. People will have already fallen in love with their first-round beauty. The rooting tide will be against us. And I might even continue to share my love with others. I might even root for Zen and Kobe to win a few more games. What does it all mean? I'm losing my mind.
