    Interesting concept... Obviously something come about due to Coronavirus. But imagine 500 years in the future and sports teams/leagues figure out this is a more profitable way to sell tickets/get people to watch games. This is how you “go” to a game, in VR. It is the same view as if you had the seat and you hear the people around you as if you were there, but you are really sitting on your toilet taking a dump... Well okay maybe you don’t hear the people around you...

    Looks weird, at first I wondered if it was just some pre recorded whatnot.

    Kind of cool honestly, but what happens when somebody moons LeBron James shooting a FT in the finals or something?

    Also Kerry Kittles was live for the Nets game.

    So The Blazers offered it up to Season ticket holders first I think I decline because I knew I wouldn't be watching most of the games in real time and thought it would be kinda stupid. Then after watching the games last night, IT looked pretty cool. I also thought I noticed some crowd noise pushed into the game at times?
