    Default Official MLK day thread.... my favorite day of the season.

    My favorite day of the NBA season.

    -Only busy Monday of the year

    -Only weekday with afternoon NBA games.

    As a kid I loved watching the early games (they used to have them on TNT). It felt kinda like march madness, where there are games going on all day.

    Today's games: (EST)

    1:00- Twolves at Knicks
    Sixers at Wizards
    Hornets at Bobcats

    2:00- Rockets at Hawks
    Nuggets at Bulls

    3:30- Celtics at Pistons (NBA TV)
    Jazz at Clippers
    Pacers at Nets

    4:00- Sonics at Warriors

    8:00- Spurs at Grizzlies (TNT)
    8:30- Bucks at Mavs
    10:30- Heat at Lakers (TNT)

    Enjoy the day, and don't forget to remember MLK.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    When you have schools that are 90% or more white and are in areas that didn't experience civil rights movements, it shouldn't be a surprise.

    One thing I've noticed, is that Larry Brown still has no clue how to handle a zone. Minny has been playing straight 3-2 zone for the last two quarters, and NY has no idea how to handle it.

    Not to mention the Knick defense has been super-slow to react to anything Minnesota does.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Looks like both NOK and Washington are going to win in blowouts.

    Minnesota's lead has been cut to 9, but there's only 5 minutes left for the Knicks to finish the job.

    Twolves snap their 7-game road losing streak. NY came back but Troy Hudson put in the dagger.

    I went to elementary school in Farmland, Indiana. It doesn't get much whiter than that place (my friend's dad tried to get me to join the Klan when I was 11). We went to school on Martin Luther King day. I moved to Richmond (Indiana) when I was 12 though, always had that day off.

    Didn't Larry Bird make his first return to Boston as the Pacer's coach on MLK Day?

    Notice that there is always a game in Memphis on MLK day, given the fact he was assassinated in Memphis.

    Lenin, I think Larry Bird made his first appearance in Boston on the Sunday before MLK day.

    Yeah that hurt - went from looking like a shot-clock violation and our ball down 2 with 7 seconds left to the end of the game.

    But when you get down 19 in the 2nd half these things happen.

    two more final scores:

    94 83

    97 94

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    More final scores from the afternoon games:

    :thepiston 94 84

    92 :thepacers 87 (just keeping track of all the games, I know you know)

    102 93 (OT)

    109 :sonics: 93

    One common trend I've noticed on MLK day (and afternoon games in general), the home team almost ALWAYS wins.

    That trend has been disrupted somewhat today. home team is only 6-3 so far.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.
