Hoops, schmoops, is that Denzel?!


NBA Goes

Big Stars Come Out for L.A.Hoops


Oh Lordy, here we go again.

If the Lakers or the Knicks are in the NBA finals, us poor saps in the viewing audience are subjected to endless shots of celebrities in the crowd. Oh, look! There's Ray Liotta! Hey, it's Cameron Diaz! Oh WOW! Is that Tony Danza?!

I'm so dazzled, and so impressed by their caliber of fans.

When I lived in Indianapolis and followed the Pacers, we, as a city, were shocked and humbled by the presence of so many luminaries. They put our fans to shame--we'd have nobodies like Larry Bird or Peyton Manning sitting in our crowd, and they're just other sports guys. Who cares?

I can only hope the networks continue to show crowd shots so I can see people like Paula Abdul and Spike Lee. And a game isn't complete without a shot of Mr. Nicholson on the sidelines at his courtside seat. I don't want to see the stupid game, are you kidding? Show me the stars and tell me about their show on Fox or their upcoming movie!

Only losers care about the team, the players, and the game. Only a bunch of dumb hicks would want to see the plays and the replays. But then what do we know? We're just Hoosiers!

Written tongue in cheek as only you can!  Why are we, as a society, so fascinated with celebrities??  Are our own lives that lackluster that we become obsessed with the lives of those in the limelight?  Now, don't get me wrong, my life is pretty boring, and I've read People mag a time or two...lol...

Great entry! I'm sending to my boyfriend who is a true blue BB fan.  He'll enjoy what you had to say; as for me? I like the picture of Jack Nicholson, he's soooo cool.  -Karen
Soooo, how hot is it?

Well, if, as one commenter says, it's George Clooney sitting there naked, then I may want to see the audience. Come to think of it, Denzel naked would work too. Then there's Brad Pitt, and those cute guys in the X-Men movies and that Viggo guy from the Lord of the Rings trilogy and Josh Hartnett whom I just watched in The Black Dahlia, he really looks good naked, and....
I need some ice water and a fan.--Sheria
