Fishing, fishing was there before football, and now after football.

RE: NOW WHAT?

The NBA has a lot of amazing talent and it's very competitive.

I haven't been able to watch many of the games this season, unfortunately.

But, the play-offs start on April 14th and I'll be watching those games no matter what! (I hope)

Believe it or not, I prefer college basketball over NBA.

I have a couple of friends who love college basketball and really get into March Madness. I don't watch it much, but it's definitely fast-paced and fun to watch the future stars from all the schools on the court.

The Rockets may give your squad a run for their money this spring.

They are really, really good.

The Rockets are tough this year, for sure. Your Timberwolves are doing really well this season too.

I saw the current Western Conference standings yesterday: 1. Warriors, 2. Rockets, 3. Timberwolves, 4. Spurs, 5. Thunder.

It’s fun to have my squad in the mix this year, but unfortunately, we are not yet elite.

We’ve played the Warriors and Rockets 4 times so far this season and lost each game by 10+.

Anyway, we should make the playoffs, which will break a 13 year drought, so that’ll feel good.

I struggle to enjoy the NBA. Always have.

Back in the day I'd watch college ball for hours though - seemed more competitive. Just haven't had the time to keep up with it after having kids.

And somehow more passionate. Anymore the NBA seems to be all about an individual (LeBron or whoever the flavor of the month is).

RE: NOW WHAT?

That doesn't even make sense Gunnar. Le Bron has been a celebrated top performer in the league for 15 years now. That's a decade and a half of flavor, not a month.

It's the same in pro football and every other pro sport -- the top performers in key positions get a lot of limelight and $$$. From season to season, some of the top performers stay on top and some different players break through.

Anyway, I wouldn't struggle in attempt to enjoy watching. It's just a game, not required viewing.

I won't be surprised if your Wolves are at the top of the league five years from now.

It's still a young team, losing coach Saunders was a (sad) hit, and there needs to be serious focus on building defensive skills.

It looks like Wiggins has come a long way as a defensive player this season. From what little I've seen, KAT's strong offensively, but he really needs to get better on defense or have stronger defenders supporting him on the court.

The knock on KAT is he’s soft and Wiggins mentally checks out from time to time.

The veterans we brought in this year, Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson and Jeff Teague, have been better than advertised.

Butler, in particular, is a Top-15 player in the league, and brings an edge to the club.

The bench, however, is not that effective and by the time crunch time hits (last 5 minutes), the starters are abnormally fatigued and a lot of games slip away from us down the stretch.

But, it’s fun to have the Wolves winning again, so I’ll take it.

No it's not. Look no further than my Eagles for a perfect example. MOST of our star players were riding the pine for the Superbowl. Our TEAM is heralded. Not Carson Wentz. And your boy Steph was flavor of the month last year over LeBron, so keep your Kool-Aide to yourself. I'll stick with IPA.
