Doesn’t anyone else miss the NBA?

Common sense dictates that this NBA nonsense has gone far enough, but, of course, we can see that it hasn’t.

And while it’s fashionable now to deride the league in general, and while I’m an aware enough citizen of this great land of ours to know there is only one professional sports league the absence of which would plunge untold millions of my fellow Americans into an incurable personal depression, count me among the sentimental hoop-loving fools who do indeed miss the nightly opportunity to watch the best basketball players in the world do what they do best.
