Every season since I've had League Pass, I've said I'll spend more time watching the up and coming teams, regardless of whether I like them or not, and every season I'll only start watching them towards the end, and miss out on a lot of terrific rookie seasons.
So with this crazy lockout induced rollercoaster ride almost over, I've marked on my calendar one game to watch every day which has at least one lottery team or a team I haven't seen play enough for the remaining days of the regular season.
After watching each game I'll post a review of the game and my thoughts in general here. I hope you enjoy reading it. I should note that my dates will be +1 for those of you in the US, as we are 12 hours ahead here.
11/4 - Celtics vs Heat - not a lottery team, but Celtics are my guys, and I've gotta watch them against Miami.
12/4 - Kings vs Hornets
13/4 - Pistons vs Bobcats
14/4 - Kings vs Thunder
15/4 - Cavaliers vs Wizards
16/4 - Raptors vs Hawks
17/4 - Heat vs Nets
18/4 - Cavaliers vs Pistons
19/4 - Jazz vs Blazers
20/4 - Bulls vs Heat - always fun to watch, figured I'd reward myself with this game, plus I'll be interested to see how they Bulls go with Rose back.
21/4 - Thunder vs Kings
22/4 - Sixers vs Pacers - two playoff teams I haven't watched much, need a refresher before the post-season.
23/4 - Raptors vs Pistons
24/4 - Sixers vs Nets
25/4 - Heat vs Celtics - see above
26/4 - Wizards vs Cavs
27/4 - Lakers vs Kings - these two always have entertaining matchups, and the individual battles will be great to see.
