Basketballs’ David and Goliath Teams
Posted by Nancy on April 27, 2010
It has been extremely interesting to watch the first four play-off games between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Oklahoma came into the play-offs in the number 8 spot. They are a very young team led by a very young coach. They haven’t had a tenth of the experience that the Lakers’ have had and yet….they are not only playing the Lakers in this first series…..they are battling them head to head and now find themselves even with the super-star team at 2-2.
There are millions of people rooting for this “David” team from Oklahoma as it dares to go to battle with the mighty “Goliath” team who have 15 championships to their credit. The last two games were played in Oklahoma City and the home team crushed the Lakers in their last meeting. Now the action will take place back in L.A. where the Lakers will certainly come out with an ax to grind.
In the present economic climate which has left so many of the “regular folks” struggling just to make ends meet, it would be a real Cinderella story to see the underdog come out on top. One thing is for sure, there will be a lot of eyes in this country tuning into the next Laker/Thunder game and a lot of hopes will be riding with the “David” team from the east.
