NBA Fanatic!

By Johnny Hinz

As the National Basketball Association season/playoffs is winding down, we are left with two teams. The always dominant team of Kobe and the Los Angeles Lakers and the rising force of Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic. Although these two may not be my teams of choice, I am still very pumped up to see how this series turns out. Not because i even care about the winner, but because i am a die-hard NBA fan. Do you feel the same way? Well here's your chance to compare among many who share the same love-of-the-game.

Here's a list to help rate yourself on your commitment towards the NBA:

1. You have the D-League schedule memorized.
2. You have bought a pair of game used socks worn by Delonte West.
3. You have sent hand written hate mail to Ron Artest.
4. When you are having trouble sleeping, you pop in the tape of Michael Jordan's shot against the Utah Jazz and watch it over and over again.

12. You once owned a Bullets jersey.
13. You cried for a few hours when David Robinson announced his retirement.
14. Your parents know not to talk to you when your team is loosing by more then 10 in the second half.
