The New York Yankees announced Thursday that Brooklyn Nets shooting guard Joe Johnson will throw the ceremonial first pitch prior to Friday night’s Yankees-Los Angeles Angels series opener at Yankee Stadium.
You often hear people saying that music is like art in motion and there’s no motion in the world like the NBA. Guys sprinting up and down the court, hustling like there’s no tomorrow would be so much cooler with a soundtrack, and arenas often try to give them one.
You know, that annoying elevator, ball park-like music that makes you feel like you’re in Yankee Stadium after a home run? What about a song to describe each superstar’s season? You know, a soundtrack that could describe the highly efficient season of LeBron James?
Maybe even to describe skeptical nature of Kobe Bryant’s epic season leading the Los Angeles Lakers. Music could even give a more entertaining perception of Derrick Rose’s struggle to a valuable MVP season encore.
Whatever the journey, music gives a compacted and rhythmic look at how each of the NBA’s 30 teams have pushed through the 2011-12 season, whether it is good or bad.
