My dad always told me that watching anything more than the last four minutes of a basketball game is a waste of time. At no point has that been more true than during the 2011 NBA Finals, every game of which has been a ho-hum three quarters setting the stage for an exciting finish.
So as you wait for Game Six of the Mavericks-Heat series to begin to get interesting, slide on over to NFL Network and watch the unveiling of the latest chapter of The Top 100: Players of 2011, followed by the live Reactions show. We mention this for partially selfish (OK, fully selfish) reasons, since yours truly will be paying a visit, live via satellite from Pittsburgh, to the Reactions show.
Players 40 through 31 will be unveiled beginning at 8:00 p.m. ET, and the Reactions broadcast begins at 9:00 p.m. ET. When it ends at 10:00 p.m. ET, you’ll be able to catch the last quarter of the basketball game.
Or, you know, whatever happens to be on NBC.
