Twas the night before Christmas and all through my ADOBE,
I couldn’t wait for tomorrow to watch my man KOBE…
The 16 championship banners were hung in the rafters with CARE,
In hope that No. 17 soon would be THERE ….
The players were all nestled and snug in their BEDS,
While visions of the KNICKS scouting reports danced in their HEADS…
Eileen in her KERCHIEF and I in my cap,
had just settled down for a little NBA NAP
When all over Twitter there arose such a CLATTER,
We turned on Time Warner SPORTS to see what’s the MATTER…
Away to the window I flew like a FLASH,
Chris McGee was on talking about Steve NASH!
A little old DRIVER … with a lot of SASS,
Man that CANADIAN sure can PASS…
More rapid than EAGLES his coursers they came,
D’Antoni whistled and called them by name…
Now Kobe, now Dwight, now Pau…
To the top of the porch, to the top of the WALL,
Guys we gotta get back and stop the BALL…
And then in a twinkling… I heard in my inner PSYCHE,
Out of the chimney came KOBE in his NIKES…
He was dressed ALL in fur and had some ACHY JOINTS,
But you could tell from his smile, he had just passed 30,000 POINTS!!!
A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
He vowed to get this team back on TRACK!
He then spoke no more words and looked at the LIGHTS,
Next down the chimney … was my man DWIGHT…
He was excited and anxious, for the jump ball to ARRIVE,
But on his list … he wants to be the recipient of Steve Nash’s DRIVES!!!
And laying his fingers aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose…
He sprung to his sleigh, wearing a FLEECE,
It was then he thought, WHERE THE HECK is WORLD PEACE?
I heard him exclaim and it was no CHARADE….
LAKER FANS get READY we’re still having a PARADE!!!!!
HO HO HO!
