Word on the Street

Always A Brides Maid, Never The Bride (al-weiz ey brahyds meyd, nev-er th-ee brahyd) noun. To finsih second, as a player in the stats -or/and as a team.

Usage example: “Utah Jazz was always the brides maid, never the bride to the Chicago Bulls.”

Word history: Coined by Reggie Miller as a broadcaster, when asked about the conference finals they lost against the Knicks in -99. Reggie Miller said: “We where always the brides maid, never the bride.” This phrase can be used on everything in basketball, as long as it follows the number two player -or/and team. Note that the phrase is not a negative one, like for example: the “almost” team, thats constantly comes up short. The player -or/and team that is Always the brides maid, never the bride can be the “bride” if for example: That player is number two in rebounding, but at the end of the season he’s first!

Don’t kid yourself. There’s a reason why some girls never becomes the bride!
