Bring it, Sunday.
True NBA fans won't be sitting glued to their televisions this evening watching the NFL's remaining games. They'll be sitting down on the couch, feet up, a night's worth of snacks and beverages in hand and one or two buckles loosened on their belt, waiting anxiously for a solid tilt of Association action to unfold.
Although it's still early in the season, the NBA isn't short on meaningful games. The Miami Heat are already searching for a solution to their "regular season sucks" problem. Most of us are still waiting for Phoenix Suns general manager Ryan McDonough to pull his hair out after each victory. And more than a select few of us are wondering which version of the Minnesota Timberwolves plan on showing up to the Big Apple.
Get your channel-surfing skills ready. There's a full evening of basketball in store for us this Sunday, and you're not going to want to miss it—unless you're rooting for the Boston Celtics. Then you have my permission to wrap yourself in a blankie, assume the fetal position and miss it.
