Dear Reggie Miller
A Winning Time Review.
by Matt Lawyue / @mlawyue
After Winning Time aired Sunday night, a lot of people hit me up on my cell, Twitter and Facebook.
Did you watch it? What did you think? Did it hurt? How bad did it hurt? Don’t you hate Reggie? 18.7? Finger roll? Brain-fart? Starks, Spike, Mase, Patrick, Patrick, Mase, Spike, Starks.
I collectively gave a “haha, it was good” response to everybody, masking my real feelings about the documentary.
About 24 hours after the hype died down, I sat down to write a post about it. My true feelings towards Reggie and Winning Time…
Reggie is going to be my first topic.
Everything else is second.
Granted, there were a lot of players in those battles.
Grinding this post out is going to be tough.
I have to get it done.
Even though I don’t want to write the typical:
Stop showing this,
The current Knicks suck,
Only if we could turn back time,
People could be passionate about,
Screaming for their Knicks again.
Minutes are going by and I still don’t know where to begin.
I decide I should get some snacks before I start.
Love those Oreos.
If you don’t like Oreos, you don’t like food.
Nearly every Oreo has a perfect combination of
Gobs of cream and cookie.
You have to be nuts to dislike Oreos.
Obviously there are other good cookies.
Usher just came on my iTunes shuffle.
Really, really awful performance during the All-Star game.
Even his biggest fan thought he sucked.
Shakira did her thing though.
Carefree, was how to describe her performance.
Albeit, nobody paid attention to her singing.
Really difficult time getting my thoughts in order.
I thought this would be easy.
Nearly the entire time, I thought I’d write about the struggles.
God, why did Mase have such a brain-fart?
Things could have been so different,
Had he made a better pass.
Even if Reggie did commit a foul on the play.
Could Spike have shut his mouth, though?
He will say no.
I don’t really care if he did or didn’t.
Leaving Reggie with so much space was the real problem.
Run This Town, just came on shuffle.
Enjoyed the Weezy remix to this.
Now you know my real feelings about Reggie and Winning Time.
