But 2007 just ain't goin' out that easy, don't you even think about it. As fittingly vintage as it seems, now the "it" phrase CG no longer stands for Computer Graphics (well, ain't that one a true classic) but Consumer Generated, or in layman's term, ordinary people dishing out mediocre crap.
Apparently 2007's CG has also infected the NBA, especially in a post-Jordan era when living legends no longer roam the hardwood. Cases in point:
Western Conference Semis
- Utah Jazz having heydays over their opponents without the household names of Stockton and/or Malone on any of their jerseys but a mere Boozer?
- Golden State Warriors making it this far without Run TMC but a bunch of regulars?
Eastern Conference Semis
- Detroit Pistons battling Chicago Bulls without even the slightest mention of the names Jordan, Pippen, Thomas and Dumars in the headlines?
With all due respect to LeBron, I believe the "consumers" have taken over the league.
