Whoever you’re rooting for in this game is probably a good indication of whether you rooted for the Heat or Spurs in the NBA Finals. Do you want the team who totally deserves another title (San Antonio or Germany), or are you rooting for the individual player simply for greatness (LeBron, Messi — notice I didn’t put the names of the teams itself right here, only the names of the star players).
That being said, I’m bucking the trend, because I’m rooting for Messi after rooting for San Antonio. I want to see Lionel Messi transcend to a level of greatness that we rarely see. In fact, I’m thinking of him in many of the same ways that I’m thinking about LeBron with his Decision 2.0, because I’m really in the mood to see an athlete amaze us to the point that we have no choice to appreciate the art that we’re seeing.
2-1 Argentina. Messi on the winning goal.
