I admit I lost a lot of interest in the NBA back when Bird and Magic left the league. I tried to continue rooting for the Celtics but as they got worse after the big 3 era my interest waned.
I started following pro basketball a bit more when the Celts got good again following the trade for Garnett and Allen. Now that they're both gone and the Celts suck again my interest has again diminished.
I haven’t gone to a game in person since the Lakers left the Fabulous Forum. I’ve been to Staples center for several concerts down through the years but never for a basketball game.
Try wearing some Bengal swag and see what happens....
