    Quality observation. Even my "good enough" comment was overselling it. If you're a white dork into hoops and '80s/'90s pop culture, you can't help but enjoy Simmons, but nothing he does is remarkable. Except for maybe the overall volume of work.

    Is that mascot for real? Terrifying. Between that, the team name, and the godawful tan/gold paint on their court, I can only assume the NBA is punking all of us.

    punditry/opinion journalism is just having the ego to think that your relatively obvious, college-educated opinions should be broadcast to millions of people

    everything about the New Orleans Pelicans (including color scheme, name and mascot) is better than half the teams currently in the league

    the Atlanta Hawks should just fucking give up

    i'll always despise the knicks, but knowing the entire regular season is crucial to what will be important seeding in the eastern conference, i'm having a hard time deciding who to root for in this knicks/bulls game.
    i'm a chicago "fan", but the bulls are a threat. i don't want them to win games.

    Chris Paul destroyed us last night

    too bad the Clippers don't have another good crunch-time player after him (J.J. Reddick might be their second best 4th quarter player)

    I've gone from predicting a Heat undefeated season to worrying that they won't have a home court advantage in round 1 of the playoffs.

    bulls pacers tonight.
    if pacers win, chicago will replicate the current NYC knicks "sky is falling" routine
    if bulls win, chicago will assume all is right with their team and re-annoint them best team in the east

    reactionary fandom 1.5 weeks into the season! so exciting!

    yeah, the bulls will right the ship. they're a good team, but big city fan bases tend to be overly reactionary. there's no collective measured rationality. or maybe there is, but over-reacting gives you soundbites and page views and becomes the dominant narrative.

    pacers said in preseason they're going for the 1 seed, i guess they meant it. long way to go.
