Sunday State of Mind: May 3rd-May 9th

Happy Mother’s Day! If you forgot to get your Mom anything, read her some poetry, which you can find below in this week’s SSM.

Bradley Beal dropped 50 on Indiana
Didn’t need OT, game was bananas
Wizards a shocking playoff team
Getting hot at the right time, gaining steam

In the very same game, another triple double
For Russell Westbrook, dude is trouble
For anyone trying to shut him down
He makes defenders look like clowns

Another big scorer, the man Steph Curry
Forty-nine Saturday, racked ’em up in a hurry
Put team on his back, and they won again
Excited for the NBA playoffs to begin

Sunday State of Mind: March 1st-March 7th

NBA All-Star Sunday is our focus this week. We recap an enjoyable Sunday night, event by event, in this week’s SSM.

The premiere event in our basketball binge
Was the Taco Bell sponsored Skills Challenge
A long shot winner, Domantas Sabonis
Dribbling, passing, shooting, guy could not miss

Next event up, the three point contest
From behind the arc, let’s see who’s best
Trey’s were falling, it was a tree point flurry
An obvious winner here, the man, Steph Curry

The dunk contest was the halftime show
We had Obi Toppin and two names you won’t know
It was Anfernee Simons of Blazers fame
Who won the contest, and cemented his name

Now the main event, Team Lebron vs. KD
Alley oops, no defense, and plenty of three’s
A glorified scrimmage, but it’s always fun
170-150 was the score, Team Lebron won

Another ASG in the books, a way different look
Great job by the NBA, and all who partook
A normal All-Star weekend next year, fingers crossed
Without events like this, sports fans would be lost
