Obviously, I’m partial to comedy with my long-running Off-Broadway comedy show — Ted Greenberg’s The Complete Performer — in its fifth season. And, I check out other comics routines regularly. But, some times you just need a big juicy drama. Whether it’s Breaking Bad on TV or a play like August: Osage County, it’s good to spend time with some of the darker, serious elements of the world. And, there is no drama better than the NBA playoffs this season. Am I right? Tied series, overtime games.
Series are going down to the wire; the Nets didn’t win Game 7 of the first round, but the team’s comeback during the series was heroic even if the team’s coach — P.J. Carlesimo — was canned once the Nets were bounced. My beloved Knicks have taken a game off of the much superior Pacers in the second round. I’d be happy if they could tie the series tomorrow night like the Spurs and Warriors have. Let’s go Melo.
And the media darling Memphis Grizzlies have taken it to last year’s finalist — Oklahoma City — and lead the series 2-1 with a home game tonight. That bodes well for the Grizz since they haven’t dropped a home game in the playoffs this season. And, the team is so in demand its Saturday game knocked the University of Memphis graduation ceremony to Mother’s Day. The FedEx Forum couldn’t hold both the ceremony and the game. The Grizz even won that.
I want to see if the Bulls can take it to the Heat. I know what I’ll watch tonight.
