in the time it’s taken me to decide to post something, realise there needs to be a thread for the new season, and post the thread, the Basketball Hawks of Atlanta have gone and had a really bad time in the second quarter against the Pacers

I might have to close the thread down

Don’t close the thread down, it’s only preseason!

Although my Raptors have absolutely smashed… checks notes… The Cairns Taipans?

Hawks definitely got the better of it. Also hadn’t noticed Trae sneak up to 15

American stadium atmospheres are so goddamn weird :smiley:

yeah, the NBA TV guy said Trae’s in mid-season form, but he’s not really, he just got to the charity stripe a bunch

I think maybe the fans need to boo him more, please see to it that they do :innocent:

have you been to an NBA game before? I would have thought maybe the atmos might be odd because it’s preseason, but idk

also please let Quin know that his spectacles are really nice

Knicks vs Bucks (fest baby Giannis!) back in 2015, which was good but can’t remember any details. Apart from some smart young lawyer booing the shit out of the Knicks until he was red in the face - classic fan!

But nah you’re right about pre season, but meant like changing the song every 15 seconds, all the chants etc. Just a very diff way of doing sports!

But glad to be seeing it and to have pretty close up seats at a good price

yeah, that’s a great spot!

I didn’t notice what they were playing during Philly offense… normal DE-FENCE stuff during Hawks possessions, tho

that Knicks experience sounds incredible. would love to see a Knicks game tbf.

did Baby Giannis show out much? rookie season, yeah?
