Your friend Jeff, who normally around this time of year is bitching about "the same teams always being in the playoffs," now has a stick up his ass about the Indiana Pacers and Memphis Grizzlies being in the NBA conference finals.
"Pacers and Grizzlies? Who gives a crap about them?" says Jeff. "I can't name a player on either team."
Jeff isn't too jazzed about the San Antonio Spurs being in the Western Conference Finals either.
"I'm so sick of them. They're so boring," he said. "And it's another small market team that no one gives a crap about," he added — oddly, considering just weeks ago he said David Stern and the NBA officials conspire to advance big market teams in the playoffs.
"I don't want to watch these nobody teams in the playoffs," said Jeff. "What I wouldn't give to see the Lakers and Celtics still around."
Jeff made this statement without irony despite bitching incessantly during the 2010 NBA Finals about having to watch the Lakers and Celtics. "Enough with these teams already," he said then. "The NBA needs some new blood."
"Man, Jeff can be really annoying," you think to yourself. "Maybe I shouldn't be friends with him anymore."
"Oh, jeez. And the Heat. Screw them," says Jeff. "I'd rather watch anyone but them."
