One of the best parts of the first couple of weeks of the NBA season is watching game after game that has something to intrigue me.
It could be comparing the new looks of Dirk Nowitzki and Andrei Kirilenko to see what is worse.
It could be watching the Bulls, Hornets, Nets and Celtics to see exciting, talented young point guards.
It could even be watching glorified NBDL teams to see high draft picks...like the Washington Bullets/Generals...whatever you want to call them...to see John Wall and LA Clippers to see Blake Griffin.
Griffin is indisputably a stud and I wish him a long, healthy career with numerous highlight reel plays because he is quite enjoyable to watch.
But it says a lot about the Clippers that the following exchange, or very close to it, took place between the Clippers television announcers.
"Those shots by Kidd and Cardinal really hurt."
"Yes, take away those two shots and it is only a 10-point game."
This just in...if you are losing by double-digits, it really is not all that close of a game. When your goal is to lose by nine or less, or when you bemoan shots that do not even double the deficit...your team is in for a long year.
I happen to work with Chris Kaman's cousin, and now face a serious conundrum. Should I repeat this comment to him at work tomorrow or keep my mouth shut and hope for the seat upgrade next time the Clips come to town?
I think we all know the answer to that one...
