I just want to get my thoughts out about the NBA being back. I have loved the NBA since I was a kid. I was a fan of the Charlotte Hornets since they came into the league back in 1988 I was 9 years old. I loved the cheering in the stands, the sold out arenas, and the hype of the playoffs. I even played basketball when I was younger. It has been a part of my life. When I heard that the lock out was over and saw how many people had so much to say (good and bad) about it ending, I wanted to speak my mind about it. I feel that there are some people who used to love the NBA then something happened and they lost that love. For others, they are just not fans at all.
Either way, I feel the voices of the people who love this game are being drowned out by people who don’t share the same enjoyment of the sport. I always have and always will love the NBA. There is nothing like the start of the season when everyone is fresh and ready to play and there is nothing like the playoffs where everyone is fighting for their playoff lives. Now I didn’t end the lock out like Rod but I can say I love the fact that NBA is back. I LOVE this game baby!
