    It's weird watching Reddish play solid defense and actual inspired basketball? It's like where was this guy?

    I counted 4 missed layups and two extended rests laying on the floor during action by Nurkic. Of course there was the obligatory holding his face while running down court action as well.

    Was following the leaders. Like every single player traded here (sans Hart).

    This Bucks team just looks like they don’t know what to do.

    They should have let Shaq perform Whats Up Doc (Can We Rock) in the in-season tournament finals.

    the Blazers won their first tournament game. Everyone was excited to bring home a trophy. Now Blazer fans are just excited when Scoot shoots less then 3 airballs.

    What this article seems to be saying is that the IST is working. It's creating interest in the league at a time when most casual sports fans weren't tuning in. I'm not really interested in the ratings for tonight's game because it is a one off but the fact that overall ratings are up and ratings were way up for the tourney games makes me think this thing will be sticking around and it will increase interest in early season games from fans who usually wait until either Christmas or after the Superbowl to start tuning in.

    Been a huge success. Not perfect and could have some tweaks buf yes it'll be here a long time. Bunch of old cranky men on this forum who've posted otherwise, probably similar to people saying the 3 point shot was a temporary fad 40 years ago.

    Wouldn't be shocked if in 10+ years we get a second IST. Really doesn't detract at all from the regular season since their also regular season games.
