LOS ANGELES, CA - MAY 20: Blake Griffin #32 of the Los Angeles Clippers reacts after the Clippers lose to the San Antonio Spurs 102-99 in Game Four of the Western Conference Semifinals in the 2012 NBA Playoffs on May 20, 2011 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Well it's that time of year. When I try to get back to my normal routine, without the urgent need to check the Clippers game score on tv, phone, and/or radio...Will I watch the rest of the playoffs? Yes, the OKC-SAS matchup, I think, will be extremely entertaining to watch. Should a Heat-Celts match-up come out of the east, I will tune in. However, I will not have the same fervor of a clippers game. I will easily turn off any of the upcoming playoff games without an itch to look at my phone for the latest score. NBA basketball has turned from a "must have" to a "nice to have." How about for you?
