First night of the season and I’m already disappointed.
Would it have been so hard for the Mavs to trot out some exciting young talent last night? I watch Dirk with the knowledge that he’s going to disintegrate soon. I need fresh faces to keep those thoughts in the background.
Looking at their roster, never mind. Their “young talent” consists of, uh, Ricky Ledo.
The Spurs, though, have no excuse. I know they’re trying to win on opening night, but last time I checked, Kyle Anderson is a winning player. It’s never too early to try and establish a future where their big three is Anderson, Leonard and Daye. Even just a few minutes as a teaser? Too much to ask, apparently.
So in lieu of someone more invigorating, you guys get drab Devin Harris highlights. Don’t forget that this guy was once an All-Star and thus has no reason to be this boring of a player.
