In today's NBA, we watch like we live. Every single game becomes its own event, but it passes by just as quickly as it comes, and when it's gone it gets overanalyzed, overvalued and eventually forgotten a few weeks later.
That's why, with Thanksgiving coming up, we should sit back, chill out and relax as we reflect on things that make our lives better. And whether they be by a little bit or by a lot, it seems like the most important thing to do is carry that over to basketball.
We seem to focus on the negative so much that it's easy to overlook the things that are great about today's NBA—and there are quite a few things to point to.
Whether we get complex and talk about our love of Marc Gasol's post game or go simple and just say we love how terrible Shawn Marion's jump shot looks, there's something out there for everyone to point to and hang their hat on.
It's easy to love specific things about your favorite team or your favorite player, but there are some things that every NBA fan should love, regardless of their team affiliation.
