Boo To All-Star Game Valentine’s Days
“N**** couldn’t even watch the all star game, had to do the whole valentines day thang/ gotta play the game so my lady don’t complain”
My thought’s exactly J. Cole…well almost exactly. Every year, for literally as long as I can remember, the NBA has placed the all-star game along with its festivities smack dab on Valentines Day…EVERY YEAR! Whether it’s the night of the dunk contest (as it is this year) or on the actual all-star game itself, the NBA never fails to place the exciting weekend on Hallmark’s favorite holiday.
Spalding or Spooning
Humans (more specifically female humans) all over the country have had their gripes with this. Their significant others are forced to be put in a situation because we (men) can’t decide on dinner reservations, or kicking it at home with the big screen reservations. David Stern and Adam Silver have constantly been making us choose between Spalding… or Spooning, and those are decisions that no man must come face to face with.
Now, common sense would tell you (or at least my form of common sense) that you and your girlfriend/wife/boo etc. can have a nice little home cooked meal, have your sessi (sexy) outfits on, and enjoy the game as a unit. What girl wants to be hit up by her girlfriend the next day like “so what did you do for Valentine’s Day” and reply with… “the all st—we watched the all star game together.” Feel me? And let’s be honest, for the average girl who doesn’t fancy the NBA (pshh, I know right) how in the world am I going to convince her that Kyle Korver going up against The Splash Brothers in an absolute 3-point showdown will be the most thrilling experience in the past month of sports. Catching my drift yet?
The Easiest Solution
I could be a boss of all bosses and drop a cool G on two tickets to all star Saturday. I mean, with all star weekend literally taking place in my backyard at the Barclays Center, it seems pretty convenient ay?…BUT TICKETS ARE GOING FOR AN UNREASONABLE 500 A POP! All in all I had to express my aggression somewhere, and who knows—maybe this ends up in the right hands and Adam Silver can do all of us hoop fans in current relationships a huge favor.
