Okay, that's funny.

 
Yeah, the schedule just came out yesterday.  That is from our local paper, The Plain Dealer.  The guy on our sports talk station thought that the NBA was mighty nice to schedule the game on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving so Lebron could be home for the holiday.  He further commented as to would he get an ovation for his first trip back or booed ?

The Q is Quicken Loans Arena.  The original name of the building was Gund Arena, named after the previous owners of the Cav's.  We would sometimes call it the Gonorrheana depending on the mood ...

There is a tremendous amount of hype surrounding this year's Celtics. They were expected to be in playoffs before losing their star trade acquisition (Gordon Hayward) for the season. Now the "experts" can't agree on who is most responsible for their dominant start. Irving? Smart? Horford? Brown? Tatum? Coach Stevens? Haven't seem them play much, but it's exciting thinking about their potential for this season and beyond.

I'm starting to think that after all of these years Lebron is reminding me a lot of things Wilt.

 

I'm only an occasional Celtics fan, but the lowlights of that game were painful to watch. Boston looks completely overmatched. And now Boston.com is reporting that Isaiah Thomas is done for the season. 

So it's the Warriors and the Cavs again. The NBA has some serious issues with tanking, lack of parity, and favored treatment of superstars. I wouldn't say the fix is in with the NBA but the whole thing is a little too predictable and overhyped.
