When Ballerball got the opportunity to join the Truehoop Network, I made a promise to myself to no longer ignore a people group that is “starved for attention.” They have been pushed aside for too long and we are here to fix that.
So fear not – Emo/Basketball Children – we are here with a column just for you!
Basketball teams do a lot through the course of a season. They win. They lose. They choke.
They also… feel.
Let’s take a look at the classic, “The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most” album by Dashboard Confessional and see how each song and best describe what a team is feeling right now.
Track 1: The Brilliant Dance
Washington has the worst record in the league. Nobody really cares, either.
Track 2: Screaming Infidelities
Poor Kyrie. The single only bright spot in Cleveland.
Track 3: The Best Deceptions
After D-12 completely turned this team upside down – all they can do now is think about what could have been before the betrayal.
Track 4: This Ruined Puzzle
With all the new pieces the Mavs have picked up and continue to pick up and drop… and pick up again – this is turning out to be a much worse team than expected.
Track 5: Saints and Sailors
Have you seen Durant play lately? He’s been kicked out of games and getting techs like it’s his job. #KDISNOTNICE
Track 6: The Good Fight
The Maloof Brothers are the worst.
Track 7: Standard Lines
Jeremy Lin and James Harden both left their prior teams to join a surprisingly good Rockets team. Those prior teams are doing just fine too.
Track 8: Again I Go Unnoticed
The Wolves can’t catch a break. They have no hope without Kevin Love.
Track 9: The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most
The words speak for themselves.
Track 10: This Bitter Pill
The Phoenix Suns is no longer being run by the ever-so-quick Steve Nash and they are even worse because of it.
So that does it for Emo/Basketball.
Hands Down this is the best column I can ever remember…
