It's been a bad night for some readers of Alico Dreams. The bottom half of the Western Conference bracket is set: San Antonio Spurs v. N'Awlins Hawnits. I confess--I rooted for the Hawnits, but not because I was hoping the Spurs would play them in the semifinals--I was rooting for the Hawnits because they're this year's Cinderella. But even Cinderella gets dumped. The Spurs will trounce all over Chris Paul & Co. on their way to the Lakers. (Sorry Jazz/Rockets fans. It's just not in the cards.) But even if not, then I'll root for N'Awlins to beat the NBA's Yankees on their way to sweeping the Pistons in the finals.
It looks like it's gonna be a good summer.
