Random thoughts from the NBA restart


Not the best basketball that I have seen, but it is basketball, and it’s live and competitive and entertaining. I’ll take it. Nice to watch some live sports besides UFC and cornhole.

Props to the NBA for figuring out how to provide a sport in about as safe an environment as possible given the circumstances. We’ll see if it holds up but I’m very impressed by the measures they are taking to make this work.

Kyle, Ty, Malcolm, Devon, Joe and Justin are all in the bubble (who did I miss?) That’s pretty awesome. I’m sad that Dre and the Hawks aren’t there (my son irrationally blames Cam Reddish ;)) but I can’t wait to see more of our guys play in the coming days.

I hate to admit it but I really enjoy watching Zion play. The way he defies all laws of physics and can score seemingly at will is unbelievable. Yes, he needs to get into better shape but he is such a freak of nature. I did enjoy watching the Duke-filled Pelicans get the L tonight though.

The fact that Georges Niang is getting playing time in the league and Anthony Gill isn’t seems like a travesty.

Alex Caruso averaged 8 points per game at Texas A&M. He was undrafted and yet kept grinding and now plays with LeBron and AD for the Lakers, and is making an impact for his team. That’s a cool story. I like to imagine what Kyle can do with a similar opportunity, and still think we’ll see him out there balling like he always does at some point. Hopefully soon. Kyle is shorter but arguably more talented on the offensive end. He averaged like 22 ppg in the G league for goodness sakes!

Ernie Johnson is a national treasure.

The 25’ wide desk that the NBA on TNT guys now sit at is a trip.

Most of all, I’m just happy to be able to watch live basketball with my son again.
