As an NBA fan from the Southeast Asia, I always keep tab on the updates of the games especially when superstars are on the floor. The game between Golden State Warriors and the Oklahoma City Thunder are somewhat far from the expectation we have after Kevin Durant decided to join the Splash Brothers with numerous reason he alone knew of. Speculative media wrote of several stories as if they’re Kevin Durant.
With the way the game transpired in 40 minutes span, one thing is pretty obvious… Russel Westbrook and his team mates are nowhere between the line of happy and sad or whatever you may call it. We thought that NBA is the highest form of competition in basketball, where the champs are branded as the World Champion… to which I disagree as it is more appropriate to call them USA Champs as no other country are competing in this league, its’ all Americas state’s involved and together with a few European, Asian or other race joining the bandwagon of individual seeking success in the kingdom of basketball giants.
True to its word and meaning that “change is the only permanent thing in this world” that’ caught Kevin Durant’s heart to switched team, a lot of memes and other mocking games were directed to him that even his former ally Russel Westbrook took part as seen in several video clips… including Stephen Curry. If these are part of the marketing awareness strategies, i think this wont make the parents of the million kids and grown up fans proud, once copied and absorbed as a normal part of the deal of being one of the best point guard of the game. We believe that an NBA player is a gentleman in all facets of his stature.
Focus must be limited to the competition, letting the ball dribbled and led to the basket telling the fans who’s better and the best after every game. Skills and basketball IQ should be shown instead of antics and verbal disturbia, where when men’s ego, once awaken sometimes equates to devastating result…. just as the way the Golden State Warriors demolished the Oklahoma City Thunder in their last game.
Play your best, fair and square on the floor not in front of the camera reels. – Paquito
