Let me be honest with you, I'm a basketball junkie. I have to get my basketball fix from somewhere, and if I can't get it from the NBA if (when) they end up canceling games this season, I look to the NCAA, but I don't think even that can satisfy my urge at this point.
So, in light of recent contract negotiations with the NBA, I've thrown myself completely into international basketball. Learning the ins and outs, figuring out the differences, and checking out where I can watch the action.
I spent all of September watching FIBA Championships at which point I got way too overexcited for the Olympics coming up in 2012, even prompting myself to write an in-depth analysis of each country's odds about eight months too early.
Now I'm on to the EuroLeague. I've even gone as far as to join a EuroLeague fantasy basketball league of which I feel like I know very little about right now. But that's half the fun, finding out about something that you previously knew very little of before.
What can I say, I'm a basketball dork.
Still, that can't dampen my excitement for the start of the EuroLeague here in a few weeks and just basketball to start altogether as soon as possible.
