I’m always a little bit disappointed that I’m not a professional basketball player, but air travel takes it to a whole new level.

I originally booked a two-part flight to Halifax on Monday, and ended up having to leave Sunday night and sleep in the Philadelphia airport after my first flight was cancelled. That was fine, until my flight the next afternoon had to turn around and go back to Philadelphia when we were right over Halifax.

Greivis VasquezEarlier tonight, I managed to catch a good deal of the Warriors-Kings game. It was a tough one to pick a rooting interest in: the Warriors have been “my team” since my family left Toronto in 1999 (for Baltimore, and I’m not going to root for a team from DC), but Greivis Vasquez is my favorite basketball player by a pretty wide distance, and I’ve grown accustomed to always rooting for Greivis’ team. Also, their new coach has a great last name.

I settled on “Greivis has a great game, but the Warriors win,” which turned out to be half right. Greivis got just 14 minutes and scored six points with three assists on 2-8 shooting, but the Warriors picked up a win behind 36 from Steph Curry.

DerrickRoseFS1Life without Derrick Rose isn’t necessarily bad for everybody.

And while the Bulls have proven they can make noise without their All-Star point guard, the Los Angeles Clippers may have caught them at the best possible time: the first game after Rose was diagnoses with a torn meniscus.

The Top 10 Surprises of the NBA season

It’s exactly 10 days into this NBA regular season, it feels like 10 weeks for those who cover the league on a regular basis, and a whole hell of a lot has already happened.

Few things have gone as expected, of course the undefeated start for the Pacers is an exception, and surprises abound across the league. Here are 10 that immediately came to mind, including a pair of dazzling young point guards, one major market team in big trouble and another that’s downright irrelevant right now.
