I recently bought myself, in reverse chronological order as it were, a 46″ Spectre LCD TV from Walmart for $750, and DirecTV Choice Package ($29.99/mo until 2011) with HD receiver (free) and NBA League Pass (4 payments of about $42). Oh, not to mention a Dual Core Pentium laptop with Vista Home Premium from Staples for only $350.
Couldn’t be happier.
It took the free accompanying NBA League Pass Broadband account awhile to finally get approved — and I’ll write about it later — but all these things combined simultaneously is, in short, incredible! Worth a future blogpost to explain the nitty gritty, for sure, and the motives are business-related as well as pleasure, as will be revealed in due time.
Meanwhile, I’d like to start a new feature called Lessons of NBA League Pass: Tonight’s Top Ten.
Every now and then, I’ll find myself on the low-key. Might be tomorrow. Might not be for another week. Two weeks. A month. Truly, it depends on my workload and family commitments. But when I get in that zone of flipping around and watching the league’s talent on display, I’ll share what I learned with you.
To help out the process, I’ll be randomly live-tweeting on those nights from @nbalivetweet.
Without further adieu, here’s the inaugural edition…
10. The Minnesota Timberwolves are a bad team, Jonny Flynn has no one to pass to.
9. It’s the year of the young point guard. Darren Collison of the Hornets 22 pts 11 ast vs Hawks.
8. The young Kings need more composure. Yet Spencer Hawes is not bad, not bad at all.
7. Carlos Boozer. Bottle up and sell that Free Throw shooting potion you got there!
6. LeBron James even makes 6′8″ Thaddeus Young look small. LBJ should be the MVP for the next 3+ years.
5. Andre Iguodala is soft.
4. Deron Williams is an under-rated shot blocker/disruptor. He needs more respect from refs.
3. Never count Brandon Jennings out. 22 of 26 pts in 2nd half. Bucks tickets worth every penny.
2. The Nuggets are ferocious. Violent dunks by Melo, Birdman, K-Mart, and oh esp JR Smith. Wow!
1. Young teams will cower to big throwdown plays. Witness 76ers (vs Cavs) and Bulls (vs Nuggets).
