“The Bright Lights”

Tonight, basketball and hockey’s finest go head to head under the bright lights.  Kobe takes on Lebron in a rematch of the embarassment that occurred on Christmas Day.  And Sidney Crosby battles Alex Ovechkin in a rematch of the amazing playoff series that they gave America last year.

First the clash of the NHL’s best.  Sid the Kid takes on Ovi (great nicknames).  This is hockey’s best rivalry due to the two superstars at the forefront.  Not to mention these are both strong teams.  Hockey needs more of this.  They need more publicity of this rivalry.  Many cities that do not have NHL teams have lost all interest in the sport.  This rivalry could be the one that brings the NHL to prominence.

Years ago these two kids many thought could become like Larry and Magic were for the NBA.  And the great thing is, they have become the Magic and Larry of the NHL.  They do not dislike each other.  But when on the ice, the competition is fierce.  These two guys want a piece of each other.  They want to be known as the game’s best.   And who can blame them?  Tonight should be a great one if you get a chance to tune in.

Then lets not forget about the biggest rivalry or argument in basketball.  Kobe vs Lebron.  Who is better?  I think we see enough of these guys on their commercials.  Either way, any time one of these guys steps on the court it is a treat.  You know that you could see something special on any given night.  Not only are they without question the two best players in the League, but their teams also hold the League’s best records.  So it may only be January, but you know that Kobe and the Lake show are chomping at the bit to exact revenge for the whooping the Cavs laid on them in LA on Christmas.

Should be a great night of bright lights for the NBA and NHL.  So do you think the Leagues planned to have their biggest stars go head to head on the same nights?  If they did, poor planning in my eyes.

Stay tuned for the next edition of Sportskraze.

  1. Bad result for the Pens tonight. Ovechkin “the ugly” and the caps will pay. Result would have been different if the Pens had Max Talbot and Dupuis.

    • Greg Ostertag,
      First of all let me state that Ostertag was always fun to watch playing for the Stockton/Malone Jazz squads.

      It was definitely a tough loss for the Pens swallow last evening. As they get healthier they will be set to make a stretch run to defend their cup. Both stars scored though and played solid.

      Always fun to see the two best players in the world match up and play well.
