The Corner

Hoopstown

Congratulations to the Detroit Pistons for winning an NBA championship that few people thought they were capable of winning. I’ve seen a lot of sports teams come and go, but I’m not sure I’ve seen one that is both so good and so balanced at the same time–a real team, rather than a couple of superstars aided by a few interchangeable bit players. Perhaps hometown pride is overwhelming me right now. Still, it was an impressive playoff run, and an especially impressive performance against the Lakers. We now return to our regular programming.
