Kickback, grab a drink and favorite finger food, tune out the wife(or gf) and kids, and enjoy today's full slate of roundball games.

What're the seeding implications for today's games?

I think this is the first time ever I'll be watching an NBA game while there's still sunlight outside. 7PM here, the Nuggets are back, ice cream is ready, pizza is on its way, what a wonderful afternoon. :D

Don't know how long sports will last, so I'm going to enjoy every moment.

Read on Twitter


Underrated gem: Reggie Miller isn't working today.

TV networks care about ratings, and especially a draw in the Eastern time zone.

The betting line just moved in favor of Miami. Is Denver missing players?

Yeah, it's completely different than those early games during the winter when it's already night. This is awesome.
