Because the season is still off, basketball news is slow, and comments inevitably have no where else to come together.
Some random and basketball-related things for conversation:
(1) Video games! XCOM: The Bureau is out. Seems like Mass Effect and Bioshock had a child. Saints Row 4: wasn't really my cup of tea, but seems alright. Splinter Cell was pretty cool; though the plot sort of reminded me of COD Black Ops II
FROZEN SMORES :YUM
I finally got to visit CA in a LONG time. In & Out, California-based Mexican food, all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ, pho, and The Hat for chili cheese fries. Am I missing anything that I can't get in Boston? Naturally I also went to the beach to see the sun set instead of rise.
(3) Is there really a (moral) distinction between Kobe using crazy/futuristic medical procedures and players using more-commonly accessible human growth hormones/steroids/etc?
(4) If the NBA were to relocate a team to Seattle, which team would it be? Assume the Kings are off the table now and someone else has to be it. If you pick an Eastern Conference team to move West, make sure to balance it by sending a Western Conference team East.
(5) Should the NBA really embrace the idea of putting teams (and I guess then eventually conferences) in Europe and Asia?
