Brown looks really smooth pulling  up off the dribble. Steven Adams is killing the C's, its almost comical looking at him vs the all 6'8 and under celtics.

That stop and quick pop up for the jumper was the Reggie Lewis move.

What a two man game with Smart and Wanamaker there.
Whatever crushes individuality is despotism, by whatever name it may be called and whether it professes to be enforcing the will of God or the injunctions of men.

I'd like to see the intentional transition foul outlawed.  It effectively removes one of the most exciting plays in the game.

Watching games without fans is okay.

This music they're playing though, completely unnecessary, and makes the broadcast worse.  Gotta pump up that crowd though I guess?  Maybe it's to help mask colorful language from the players/coaches though?

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

  • Yup
I know it's an optical illusion, but the spacing seems so much better. 
Yup

It might be, the Nets featured songs by Biggie/Nas & Jazz had some Techno/Smooth Jazz.

Could be wrong, but each home team gets to choose their own music.

Premature / panicky hot take for funsies:

Tatum's game looks as rough and unkempt as his hair.

Youíll have to excuse my lengthinessóthe reason I dread writing letters is because I am so apt to get to slinging wisdom & forget to let up. Thus much precious time is lost.

So far watching without fans has not been all that distracting, maybe its they can keep the camera angles tight enough that you can't really see the absence. NBA did a good job setting up the court to hide the lack of fans.

Are we gonna start panicking over less than a half of a scrimmage game?

Is it the lack of fans that makes the "squeaks" from the shoes so much more noticeable, or is it something about that floor?
