Was just trying to see what this first-ever NBA In-Season Tournament is all about. I know that it’s designed to draw attention/eyeballs for an otherwise benign early stretch of the 82-game regular season.
…Thing is, it’s hard to hold my attention — although you do have it right away, undividedly (now a word — when the courts you’re playing this tournament on look like THIS:
Think of the Denver residents who’ll attend this game, overdo it on some pregame edibles, only to arrive to the arena blissfully unaware of the mind-blowing spectacle they’re about to witness. It’d either be the best trip, or the most horrifying one of all-time, amirite?
Am I overreacting? Is this completely and utterly bonkers or is it just me? Good on you, NBA, getting some draw on a Friday night. Guarantee you bars across America and the globe are abuzz with chatter about these courts. That’s what you want!
