We made it, you guys. Our long national nightmare is over. The NBA has returned. 20 hours after this posts, the Dallas Mavericks will take on the defending champion San Antonio Spurs on TNT. That is the first thing I’m happiest about with the return of the season…not the game, but NBA on TNT. Even […]

To be honest, I’m as guilty as anyone. But it’s time to cut this out. All of us. Endless refreshing of Adrian Wojnarowski’s Twitter account, believing in Chris Broussard again, and buying into endless speculation has. to. stop. I mean, this stuff isn’t even news!

Nine points, eight rebounds, eight turnovers. Of course, Kobe Bryant’s return to the Los Angeles Lakers had little to do with Sunday’s game.
