During a hallway conversation yesterday morning, something dawned on me: the NBA playoffs are like the electoral college system. You can have the majority of the points (or votes) and still loose the series (or election). Our Denver Nuggets trail the series 3-2 despite having outscored the Lakers 520-515. Yeah, yeah, I know, cry me an Al Gore. Fortunately, although I am traveling to Florida this afternoon, none of the games take place there. As for the outcome of this series, I believe the Nuggets are ideally positioned to take game 6 at home tonight and use that momentum to beat LA at the Staples Center on Sunday. You're welcome to your opinion, that is mine and I'm sticking to it. As for the experts, what do they know anyway? Destiny calls.
Not convinced? Here's more proof. This is Matt Hawthorne's first time as donut boy. This would also be the Nuggets' first time at the finals (the Lakers have been 29 times). Matt's debut. The Nuggets' debut. Think of it as a good omen. Another good omen: we got a new coffee maker today. So, what are you waiting for? Come on down and grab a Krispy Kreme donut -or more- to toast our NBA team of destiny.
