I had Wizards/Bullets season tickets for 25 years until Covid hit.  I also have the NBA league pass and watch every Celtics game.  I'll watch a good game once in awhile without the Cs playing.

Honestly fewer and fewer every year. I really just hate the NBA as a sports league. The product they put out is just so laughable compared to the other sports leagues. Horrible refs, terrible parity, pampered stars, ect.

Beeing a teenage Basketball fan in Germany in the early 90's, I wasn't able to watch NBA games. Only the finals were broadcasted every year. So we had the impression, the NBA consisted of a Bulls Team, and some minor supporting teams. I even missed Dirk joining the Mavs in '98, due to poor coverage.
Of course I became a fair weather Mavs fan... and later occasionally watched Celts games during the "new" big three era. When Theis joined the team, I had a small proudgasm.  ;D

He's played very well here and is a bargain too. Did you know of him before he was in Boston?

I watch every Celtics game (with very few exceptions) and will watch a random 10:00pm game about once a week when I want to stay up late and nurse a couple cold ones.

I also listen to NBA podcasts in the background of work a couple times a week and will tune into national games when they pique my interest.

All that being said, I never toss out trade ideas because in the ~15 years Iíve been lurking or posting on these forums Iíve recognized how very rare it is for a trade idea to actually come to fruition. I know itís a fun part of fandom for many people, just not for me.

Some very creative people post here.

Here in central Florida we get the Magic as our local team telecast. I watch one or two of their games a week, plus a national game that isn't a Celtic game, every week or two.

I do follow the league results, the standings and stats almost every day. I follow most of the bigger NBA reporters and some teams on Twitter. And I check into Hoopshype rumors on the regular.

I am not sure if that means I am well versed enough to talk intelligently on every player and team, but I think it does mean I am trying to.

I used to watch a ton of NCAA ball so as to stay on top of draft stuff, but over the last couple seasons have stopped doing that.

Speaking of ORL, my gut tells me they're going to bring the same squad back intact next season to see what they can do when healthy. What's your take on their intentions or are they unreadable?

Same. I love the Celtics but hate the league. We don't have any anointed stars from the media and sponsors, so we are basically trash in the eyes of the officials and league office. So I make a point not to watch nationally televised games. ESPN in particular does not deserve my eyeballs. At this point their website is closer to a LeBron fansite than a news source.

I follow all the major sports, and this is the only one I feel that way about. It's too bad.

I did... but I honestly never saw him as an NBA player. :D
I'm glad he proved me wrong.

I followed other teams on the League Pass package for the past few seasons but decided to only subscribe to Celtic games this season. Iím in NY so will watch the Nets and on occasion the Knicks games. Never miss a Celtic game. Itís been a trying season.

I watch so much basketball I've become an unofficial video scout for the Celtics. They haven't needed my notes yet but I got to stay ready for when coach calls on me.

If I didn't have that one friend I made on the internet back in 2004 I'd be convinced I was autistic.

In theory I'd like to watch all sorts of games involving teams like the Nuggets, Jazz, Mavericks, etc.

In practice I can hardly find time to watch the Celtics on League Pass a day or two later.

None unless itís the playoffs. The lack of defense in the regular season makes games boring.

I watch every Cís game but will watch other NBA action if itís a rival of the Cís just to see what the team is going up against.

I used to watch a game every night, but the pandemic has cut into that ability substantially, so this season itís pretty much Cís only.
