Who Were the Champions?
Ok, Clever Girls- and again, this is not meant to be punishment. As you sit in front of an NBA game this weekend- it might help you to know who the first NBA championship champion was and those of last five years. I’m going to up the ante by giving you the MVP of the game- who they played for at the time and where they are now.
This way, a Clever Girl could say- “Oh, so and such, didn’t he used to play for … and wasn’t he the MVP when they won the championship?” You see that this is phrased as a question?Why? Because men don’t like being TOLD a thing or two about sports- no matter how HOT you are … it is likely to leave a bad taste in his mouth. Clever Girls are NOT know-it-alls.We are intentional and our intention is to let our guy know we know a bit about his favorite sport- but are deferring to him for clarification.
Be certain his friends will take note and you will be well on your way to being that COOL chick who is invited to watch another game. This is an honor- I must tell you- because most guys think a girl who “likes sports” is pretending to and is actually a spy for the other girlfriends and wives who are out with each other during the game.
1947 Philadelphia Warriors- NO MVP
I decided to give you the last six, because my Detroit Pistons would have been cut otherwise and my brother would have given me hell about it.
2009 Lakers over Magic- Kobe Bryant- MVP with Lakers- still with Lakers
2008 Celtics over Lakers- Paul Pierce- MVP with Celtics- still with Celtics
2007 Spurs over Cavaliers- Tony Parker- MVP for Spurs- still with Spurs (married to Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria)
2006 Heat over Mavericks- Dwyane Wade- MVP for Heat- still with Heat
2005 Spurs over Pistons- Tim Duncan- MVP for Spurs- still with Spurs
2004 Pistons over Lakers- Chauncey Billups- MVP for Pistons now with Denver Nuggets
OK, that is a good start, and yes, it is a shame we lost Chauncey to Denver. Have a fantastic weekend.
