  1. There's going to be some interesting games. I'm watching Wizards-Bulls and Grizzlies-Thunder the most.

  2. i do wish TNT wouldn't use Greg Anthony as a color guy. Still remember him coming off the bench in street clothes and punching kevin johnson in the back of the head. I turn off every game i see him broadcasting.

    1. I couldn't disagree more. Sure he has lost a little off his fastball, and is a relative mess on football, he still is one of the top NBA broadcasters if not still the top.
