Joey "Deez" Blog “NBA is Back!:

October 26, 2016

The Fall leaves are here and with them comes my favorite time of the year, basketball season. Yesterday marked the return of the NBA and this year’s already shaping up to be a great one with a couple games that did not disappoint. The big one of course, the San Antonio Spurs beating the juggernaut that is The Golden State Warriors. The word “upset” really doesn’t do this game justice as the Spurs were a pretty big underdog yet won by 29, definitely leaving a lasting impression on what almost everyone thought was a near-unbeatable Warriors team. Looks like they still have some kinks to work out.

 

The other big game on last night was the Cleveland Cavaliers against the New York Knicks. Lebron James seems to still be just as dominant as he was in the NBA finals, leading his team to a 117-88 victory. I personally couldn’t have asked for a better opener from him, seeing how he’s on my fantasy team and put up some great stats (19 points 11 rebounds 14 assists). Seriously, this guy is crazy good. He very well may go down as the best in history, but he still has some more rings to go.

 

All this basketball talk has got me hoping that we may get an NBA team back sometime soon and one man who is pushing that agenda is Chris Hansen. For those that missed it, Chris and an investment team said earlier this week that they would be willing to privately fund an Arena here in Seattle. YES! That would put us one step closer to team, not to mention the NBA wants to expand sometimes soon. I won’t hold my breath quite yet but this is definitely what I like to see happen here.

 

Are you pumped for the NBA season? Do you want to see a NBA team back in Seattle? ​
