It’s October again, people. Usually by this time of the year, I’d be opening the TV and switching the channel to NBA TV every single morning. You see, October is the start of the NBA season. It’s when people like me watch live games and replays, and keep tabs on rumors and transactions all day, every day. It’s when people like me become all about basketball.
After a wonderful season, with Jason Kidd and Dirk Nowitzki finally getting the championship they deserve, we’re now left with the NBA’s second lockout.
Too bad it had to come to this. Fans like me feel the loss of not being able to watch and cheer for our teams. Imagine what the lockout does to the hard core fans. I lose a piece of myself for every day without basketball. Do they lose themselves?
