Been watching pre-season NBA some. Gives me a chance to see the young players show their stuff since in these games the coaches are trying different sets of players to see how the work together. The regular starters who play normally don exert themselves to their max especially on defense since they don't want to get hurt in games that don't count.

I just watched The LA Clippers ply the Denver Nugats . The score was 118-112 Clippers in overtime. They were truly going at it. Most of the starters got a lot of playing time and they weren't holding back. Chris Paul , point guard for the Clippers scored 40 PTs. Several times they were scrambling on the floor for loose balls.

If we don't count our blessings
We are just wasting our time
