Hey everybody. We hope you're all okay. Things are obviously pretty crazy on the East Coast right now, and it's not the least awkward time to talk about sports. But whether we're ready for it or not, the NBA season starts tonight. We're all safe over here, and we're excited to have basketball back. Of course, as we watch tonight, we'll have much else on our minds, and our hearts go out to everyone who has no power, no cable, no home, or no time to think about games because they have much more serious things about which to worry. For those of us who are lucky, let's be extra grateful about our good fortune, about our ability to live a "normal" life full of LeBron triple-doubles, Rondo needle thread passes, Kyrie blossoming, John Wall speed, Dirk cheering from the bench, and a new era of villainy in Los Angeles. It's going to be a good night for some, a rough night for others, but here's hoping that the new season makes each of our lives better or easier to get through, if only slightly.
