thats not true. there have been a few good games already. okc beating the mavs by a last second shot by KD comes to mind.
the biggest surprise so far is the play of Kobe. whatever experimental surgery he had done in germany is working wonders for him. a-rod had the same surgery and im hoping he comes back looking 5 years younger.
76rs didnt look that good when the knicks beat them.
boston is playing like garbage. rondo needs to step his game up. he might have to be a 20 pt-10 ast guy for them to compete this year.
knicks look lost. ive watched every game up to this point and it obvious they need a good point guard. douglas is a shoot first pass last type player. shumpert might be a capable point but hes still a rookie and plays out of control most of the game. STAT bulked up too much over the offseason and its affecting his jump shot. the knicks play too much iso and STAT needs to be fed the ball. melo is having a great year but he forgets the concept of team ball at times.
im enjoying this season. first year ive had NBA TV so i get to watch a game every night as well as all the knicks and nets games.
There will always be good games, but that doesn't mean that the teams are playing well. Last night's Dallas/Lakers game is a great example. I am an admitted Kobe admirer, but his play has been brutally hard to watch this year. He's been chucking to a degree that I haven't seen since 2006, and he's not even playing with Kwame and Smush this time. A lot of it probably has to do with the fact that there are a total of zero other playmakers on the team, including the PGs. Their situation is even worse than New York's. At least Knicks fans can pin some hope on Baron. The Lakers are starting Derek Fisher's corpse for christ's sake! It is nice to see Kobe's knees performing much better for him, though.
This is the third year that I've had League Pass, and there is a very noticeable decline in the product on the court as a whole. Though it's great having so many games available everyday, it's just not that interesting watching teams playing their 4th game in 5 nights (or as was the case with the Lakers, their 9th game in 13 days. Basketball is by far my favorite sport, but I completely ignore NCAA until the tourney starts because the sloppy play just eats at my soul. There have been several games I have watched this year that have resembled Division II Men's Basketball. It's annoying. This should have been a 50 game season. I can't believe they're actually going to play an All-Star Game this year. I can't imagine any established stars wanting to actually play.
