My buddy and I were talking about how we could collect 7 figures to miss shots and stand around when we didn't have the ball.
    Well it's not exactly San Antonio vs. Miami

    I understand that. It is obvious why SA continues to win championships. My point is that even the worst NBA teams consist of the top couple hundred players in the world and they don't even run an offense or play defense.

    It's the first of 82 games, that's why I don't watch until towards the end and the playoffs.

    Last night was a good example of why I hate NBA basketball. Orlando's offense consisted of nothing more than Payton dribbling down court, passing the ball to a teammate and watching that person take a forced shot or drive to the basket. Ugly basketball without much defense. Hopefully Payton can contribute more as he gains experience and thei coach actually installs some offensive plays.

    I enjoyed the game last night and watching Elfrid play. He has work to do but is talented enough to play in the NBA. Those were two awful teams last night, but luckily I was overserved last night and didn't mind the bad play. I'm just getting back to Lafayette now.

    FYI, free until November 4th. http://www.nba.com/leaguepass/broadb...:buynow:button Also you can pick 5 teams to watch all of their games for $149 or $199 for all 30 teams. If you have a Fire TV the app works great.

    UL Basketball James Harden: Elfrid Payton Is 'Real Good'

    http://www.fansided.com/2014/10/29/j...ton-real-good/

    "Your boy is good," Houston Rocket's guard James Harden told Payton's father via Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders. "Real good."

    "I appreciate that," Payton Sr. told the All-Star shooting guard.

    That's high praise from Harden. Payton thought Harden's comments were "cool" and is also getting a lot of help from his own veteran teammates.

    I'm not a big NBA guy and essentially know nothing about the NBA but I was impressed with EP last night. Esp considering it was his first game.

    Its easy to tell that he is very comfortable playing with NBA caliber players. He made a couple of drives to the basket that were classic EP.

    Elfrid looked good but you can tell he will have to adjust to the NBA's athleticism over what he's used to. Obviously, he's not used to going up against guys like Jrue Holliday and even at the PG position, they can block his shot and stay in front of him much better than what he saw here. However, he has the quickness and length to be effective and will just need time to settle in. He is certainly going to have to work on his jumper as they were laying off of him and essentially daring him to shoot. I don't care how good you are of a handler or distributor of the ball, if you can't shoot in the NBA, you aren't going to play all that much. I liked what I saw from him and its going to help him once Oladipo comes back as well.

    Default Elfrid Looking Good

    Great read on Elfrid, complete with clips of some of his highlight plays on the young season. Really excited to see how he will progress throughout his rookie campaign.

    They lost 108-95, they play tonight against the Bulls. I think this is the last night of the NBA Game Time free preview.

    I am signing up. Just trying to decide if I want the full package or the 5 team package and save a few dollars. There are probably only about 3 teams I want to watch play anyway.

    What TV provider? Are you talking about the Pelicans games blacked out? All of them have been on FSNO (676-4 on DTV) and arent blacked out. If you're using League Pass, the local team games will be blacked out on the LP channel but will be on the regular local broadcast channel.

    Cox 1038 or 39 HD TV. 38 or 39 digital TV. Should work in Lafayette unless the channel in Lafayette is tied to Texas teams.

    Thanks for the info. I think we were both talking about the online package NBA Game Time. So with the channels on cable carrying the game they are probably blacked out here online. I cut the cord a few months back to save some money and can only catch the games online if they are not blacked out.

    thanks again
