I was taping an appearance on the BBC the other day, which of course means that we were breaking everything down to the most basic of basics.
“Will the Miami Heat three-peat?” was the first question.
And you can’t blame the Brits for asking the same question everyone in the basketball universe is asking. (Aside from “Who will win the Andrew Wiggins lottery?”)
Resisting the urge to use the words “bollocks” and “crikey” (keeping those in the vault), I dispensed my wisdom to the best of my abilities and then closed the segment by offering a little advice. Host Chris Mitchell (or “presenter,” to use the BBC expression) closed the segment by asking me if he had a pocketful of dollars to wager, what would be the best wager?
My answer: the Indiana Pacers to win the championship.
