NBA Playoffs!

The NBA playoffs has officially started. Three (or maybe 4) teams will duke it out for the Eastern Conference Championship, while the West will be as wild as ever. The West is packed with so many great teams that anyone can win - from the first seed to the last.

For NBA fans, the playoffs will be a boon - two months of great basketball and exciting games.

For NBA fans who are going to take the bar this year, the playoffs will be a bane. The best basketball show on earth, right smack in the review period.

I remember one friend who took the bar last year. He's a big sports fan. A HUGE NBA fan. He had to make a review schedule in such a way that his study break would coincide with the game of the day. That is a pretty long break - two to three hours. He felt sorry that he had to take that long a break. But watching basketball was an itch that he had to scratch, lest he go out of his mind. The real agony came whenever there was a double header. He had to muster all his will power to pluck himself out of the sofa after the first game, with a heavy heart at that. Come Finals time, he just wished so badly that the Spurs sweep the Cavaliers - the sooner the NBA season ended, the sooner he could go on with his studies without distraction.

He got his wish. The Spurs swept the Cavs. And he passed the bar.

All's well that ends well.
