The wait is over. Or, at least it will be.
At the end of tonight, one of two championship droughts will end. Either Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant and company will end the Cubs 108 year title drought or Cory Kluber will end the agonizing 5 month wait since Cleveland last hoisted a championship trophy.
But you didn’t come here for that. So let’s talk hoops.
Wednesday night brings the return of Rajon Rondo to the Boston Garden, and I can’t imagine the reception will be welcomed. When recently asked about former Celtic great Ray Allen’s retirement announcement, Rondo responded “I thought he’d been retired…” Yikes. Welcome back, Rajon.
In other homecoming news, Mike D’Antoni returns to New York with his Rockets to face a Knicks team in a game with a 215 total. Run it up, coach. Give me all the Rockets.
Dwight Howard gets to face his old Laker teammates in Atlanta, DWill gets to face his old running mates in Utah, and Lance Stephenson will face the Grizz.
But my favorite narrative of the night belongs to none other than Cody Zeller. Zeller just signed a $56 million dollar extension, told reporters that he would play for free (::cough:: bullshit ::cough:: ) and gets to play in front of his home town crowd against the 76ers with Roy Hibbert’s knee acting up. Earn your money, big fella.
Best of luck tonight – tweet at us @NBANarratives if we missed anything and GO TRIBE!
