    Gordon Hayward having a good game to start the season was really disappointing. I am glad that the Celtics lost.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    I am surprised that you, of all people here, would continue to bitterly hold on to a prior perceived slight.

    My dislike is justified.

    What's up with the Suns? 2-1 with a victory over the clippers last night after a narrow loss to the Nuggets...

    My Kings currently suck.

    I may have to reconsider my new fandom.

    Is there a difference between the NBA all league pass for $200 total offered here. https://www.nba.com/watch/pricing

    And the Comcast Xfinity NBA league pass for the same price offered here. https://www.xfinity.com/learn/digita...ba/league-pass

    I'll hazard a guess. The content is the same. But the xfinity one goes through your cable provider, so you'll be able to watch via your DVR. It may come with a login pass for watching via streaming, but that might be an extra fee.

    The NBA all league pass might be streaming only, so you'll have to watch via a streaming device.

    That's what it appears. But it's unclear whether the same games are available on both or are they limited in one. Also is there any difference in HD vs SD content availability or ease of use of user interface. I've read a few things online but it was vague and i thought the guys here might have some info.

    If you have cable/satellite TV, I think viewing is just a lot easier to go through your service provider. Depending on the provider, it can be a pain to locate the games and set the timer to record. But 99% of your games you are going to watch on TV at home, so having your normal DVR to view them is best, IMO. Not being at the mercy of the online DVR and interface is huge for me. There are some other nitpicky reasons as well. But i'll admit, i'm no cord cutter. All that hassle to save $1000 bucks a year is just dumb for anyone making decent coin.

    We will continue to have Comcast/xfinity no matter which NBA pass I choose on this.

    Help me out. What is wrong with an unlimited cloud DVR?

    Not sure how it works for YTTV, etc, but for NBA league pass here's my beef. Assuming you're not watching live, it's a hassle to log in and watch the game without finding out the score. Also, as you are watching the game, you can tell if it is going to OT or not by the length of the stored video. Also, I've yet to find a online/cloud-based DVR that is as responsive as the dish DVR, which starts and stops on a dime. So wrong probably isn't the right word. But annoying is definitely the right word. Also, while DVR capacity was a problem 7-8 years ago, since then, I'v never even come close to running out of space on my Dish DVR.

    OK.

    FTR, the YTTV playback is great. No lag. You can skip forward or back easily and it shows you the thumbnails so you can quickly find your spot. You can also skip in an increment that you can customize (15 sec, 30 sec). Very happy with it.

    Luka vs LeBron last night was unreal. That game felt like a playoff game. Lots of fun. It's amazing that the Mavs were able to replace Dirk with Luka. Dude is a future MVP. And what Bron is doing in his 17th season is extraordinary. That coast to coast dunk where he just beat everyone down the floor and nearly tore the rim off had shades of Miami Bron. AD with a quiet 31. And finally Bald Mamba caught a body. Caruso da goat.

    Luka and KP are going to be a problem as long as they stay healthy.

    He's awesome and will be a force in the NBA for a long time. But he's already got a lot of miles on his body at 20.

    Yes, compared to a generation ago. No compared to Zion or anyone else who has been playing competitive AAU since they were 8 years old. Don't recall the site, but there was a good article a month or two ago about the wear and tear AAU is putting on today's players. Having coached my son's team for years, it was not unusual to play 4-8 games a week (and we didn't play on Sundays).

    The Warriors are the second worst team in the NBA by point differential. Only the Knicks are worse.

    Now Draymond will be out and this will get ugly. They were something like a 15-point underdog to Houston tonight.

    i had the thought that Luka is basically a white, 35 year old bron - and that is saying something. their size and respective skill sets are so similar. that game was incredible.
    I'm like LeBron James.

    The gap may be narrower, but I still think Luka has more miles on him than your average AAU kid. He's been playing against grown-ass men since 14 or whatever.
