Just two weeks into the season the NBA’s seen some great moments. Kevin Love’s return to dominance and the Wolves being the most entertaining team in the league. Indiana looking like they can finally knock off Miami. Boston pulling off one of the most improbable comebacks in basketball history, rallying from four down in 3.6 seconds against Miami. The Lakers — totally humiliated in three of their five losses — somehow managing to drill the Clippers on opening night and then beating Dwight Howard and the Rockets in Houston, with a big assist from Howard’s missed free throws.

And maybe the best development? The NBA fining James Harden $5,000 for flopping.


The NBA season tips off today. Wait. What’s that? It’s already begun?

In that case, force your brain to go backward a week before listening to our latest podcast. We break down the new season, hitting on all the requisite material: The James Harden Trade, Nash and Howard to the Lakers, the relatively crummy Eastern Conference. It’s everything you could ask for in a 20-minute basketball podcast from guys in Inwood and Sioux Falls.

Here’s the link.

A funny thing happened Saturday night: I turned on the TV and there wasn’t an NBA game. Does that mean the Finals are over? Fury and I couldn’t stand to watch after the Hollywood Heat took a 3-games-to-1 lead in the series.

OK, maybe we did watch. We just wish we hadn’t … or that the outcome had been different. Then again, perhaps I’m speaking out of turn. We’re about to find out as TV and Fury rehash the end of the NBA season.
