I saw MJ play David Robinson from the top row of the Alamodome. That was the worst place to see a game. I did see Larry Bird Kevin McHale and Robert Parish from the first row in Atlanta. That was nice!
It's always nice to see a pro sports game in person. Especially if you end up witnessing history.
I was at the football game where Adrian Peterson ran for 296 yards, and have a game ball from it too.
Back home late from the game. I had a blast, and man watching a game on TV the games seem to drag on but in person I swear game went by in second. Watching this game in person I can see why Fred wanted to leave his position with the T-wolves to coach ISU because the T-wolves are bad. Beasley and Love are probably the only guys that would make another team's starting lineup. Target Center was probably 80 to 85% full with probably a couple thousand Bulls fans spread throughout. I did my part but the MVP chants where few and far between. There was a big Scalabrine chant in the 4th quarter. So even though I didn't get to see Noah play and the starters all sat the 4th quarter I was happy. Oh yeah and Wes went 0-6 and only played 16 minutes.:smile:
I also realized while this completes my trio of mlb, nfl and nba that have done all three in the past 9 months in Minnesota. Saw my Rockies play my Twins, went with my friend on his b-day to watch his team (Cowboys) play Vikings and now seeing the Bulls also in Minnesota.
It was a very weird game that in a sense the Wolves didn't really care. Did you notice how many times Rambis called time outs ? I was in the suite last night and the cheerleaders came to see us in the third quarter (never had this experience before because usually there would be time outs and they would be dancing during the time outs). This time it was weird: no fire in the team.
IIRC the Wolves have been offering heavily discounted tickets for the last several home games but who wants to see them play like that ? I believe the upper level ticket price was 9 bucks. Pretty soon they might have to pay people to come to the game.
Glad you had a good time, the NBA is great in person. I was at Game 6 of the 2009 Celtics/Bulls playoff series (the triple OT game) and it was hands down the best sporting event I've ever been to, and I've been to several NFL and hundreds of cyclone games over the years.
They had good stuff all night during timeouts but the best was showing a video on the scoreboard of a guy coming into Target Center wearing a jersey of the team that won the previous nba finals. The last one was a prediction of Miami winning and a guy with a LBJ jersey, and then Crunch slaps him in the face.:smile:
Rambis copulg be gone in the end of the season but it won't change anything. There's no one to watch from the Wolves' side: Love and Beasley are not superstars. They also don't connect with the audience. I remember Garnett was always able to rouse to crowd, fire up the crowd.
Funny you mentioned about Thibodeau - I agree - he was always enthusiastic although the Bulls shot 76% FG by the end of the third quarter.
I saw kg play at the target center- they lost to portland but I would rank watching the cheerleaders dance in our section in the upper level as exciting as kg playing lights out. I still root for kg and am proud to have seen him in person.
NBA games are great to see in person, they really are amazing athletes. And to the ******* who said no defense is played in the NBA, get a clue!! Playoffs are just around the corner, see if there's any defense being played in those games.
