    Default Preseason games suck.

    Only because i can't see my team play. We are playing the bench the whole game and playing scrubs. Are the Pacers doing the same thing?

    Man I can't wait until Nov. 2nd. Bring on the regular season!

    Pre season games are for the die hards.

    Heck, I thought regular season games were for the die hards and that preseason games were for "sickos" like us.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Jay, I think you're right. Only the "sickos"

    I've always thought that 8 preseason game are way too many. 5 would be the perfect number. But you can't have an odd number because every team wants the same number of home games. So either 6 or 4 should be the number.

    Agreed. Fewer preseason games would be great.

    The one positive from preseason games is that you get to see the newbies play and can form an opinion of their potential.

    You then get to see them play a few minutes during the season. By the time the next preseason rolls around, it's always nice to see how much their abilities and knowledge have grown.

    Through the years, I think I've actually seen more improvement between a player's second and third year than between the first and second. That's what made watching Tinsley last year so enjoyable for me.

    With that in mind, bring on Freddie. Even with a deep bench, my guess is that he plays well enough to warrant a lot of court time.

    Less games would be fine, but something better would be half price tickets and/or not making them a part of the season ticket package.

    I'd rather the half price idea... I like the preseason games (I said "sicko" and I meant it) for the reasons Beast cited. I just don't like to play full price for it.

    I have no problem with 8 preseason basketball games, which is less than 10% of the regular season.

    What I have a huge problem with is the NFL, where 4 preseason games equals 25% of the regular season. It's just absurd and completely unnecessary.

    I feel if you are going to play 80 plus games in a season, Preseason is not necessary. 4 games max. I would even go as far as saying 2 games.

    Does anybody want to argue that 82 games are too many for the regular season?

    hell no!! That is a good number. I love being able to watch basketball every single day of the week. Nothing can be better about winter time.
