Player of the D.A.Y.

By Sam Rubenstein

There are other work-related things I’d like to be doing right now, things I need to get done, but our internet is so slow right now I’d be better off handwriting things with a quill pen and mailing them out to your homes. At least picking a Player of the D.A.Y. is obvious. LeBron James against the “BIG THREE” Celtics, a better nickname than “The Ceatles” but not by much.

If I had the technology at hand to be able to read other people’s writing on the internet today, I would hope they are drawing reckless conclusions of how this was exactly like the Jordan 63 point game in the playoffs against the very same Celtics of Bird-McHale-Parrish. And then someone else would take the counterpoint and say why can’t the guy do anything without being compared to someone else? Why can’t he just be the first LeBron? And then someone else would say, yeah then why is he on the cover of magazines having nothing to do with basketball, and why is he hosting SNL and the ESPYs and all of this other stuff? Isn’t that MJ 101? And then someone else would say… you can see how much fun this game is. I am waiting for one email to come in so I can post something much more entertaining for all of you. Until then… LeBron, he’s having a big year.
