A child can be severely abused, both physically and sexually. A child can be neglected to the point that they don’t even know what it’s like to live like a human. Yet, if you try to take a child from his mother, he will fight you. He will fight you to get back to his mom. He will leave a good clean home with food on his plate and a warm bed to sleep in and clean clothes to go to school in just to get back to the home where he was abused and neglected. I know this may not be the case 100% of the time, but it is a pretty solid rule. A child that is abused thinks that it is normal. That is the only life they know. And the bond between a mother and child is very strong, even when the mother is incapable of showing that child love.
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14
OK, at this point LA looks to have a stronger position than SA, and Boston looks to have Detroit on the ropes. Both of the #1 seeds (LA and Boston) maintain a straight home advantage. Also, LA has not cracked at home this year, and Boston has only lost once at home. But I have to say that Detroit appears to have the big mo on their side, and if San Antonio had been able to convert their free throws and hold a near insurmountable lead in game one, they would be up 2-1 and would have home court advantage. SA needs to continue to play lights out and keep their foot on LA’s throat once they get a lead. Otherwise, LA will win another come-from-behind classic since they have the very best clutch player in basketball (Kobe). Boston has not looked like a 60 win team this whole playoffs, much less a 66 win team. They broke the jinx and won on the road. Now they have to figure out how to stop McDyess along with all the other vets on the team with so much experience.
