Real Training Camp sucks beyond suck

RedsArmyAdmin October 3, 2009 Uncategorized 10 Comments

It's 7:30 pm and I've tuned into watch the Real Training Camp live stream of the Boston Celtics scrimmage.  In half an hour, I've seen about 4 or 5 plays in their entirety.  The rest has been 2 shots of Cedric Maxwell and Andrea Aldridge… 2 minute long cutaways of guys on the bench when Aldridge and Max were talking about them… and replays of things that happened last year.

I don't know who's directing this crap, but here's a memo:  I'm logging on to watch my team scrimmage and learn a few things about how they're working together.  I'm not tuning in to watch 2 minutes of Paul Pierce sitting on the bench.  And I'm CERTAINLY not turning in to watch Max and Aldridge talk while guys are playing ball behind them.

Now at 7:34, the game is over.  Thanks NBA TV.  You've shown me absolutely nothing.  I had two dopes telling me everything I already knew.  You didn't show me basketball.  You didn't show me anything.

This entire thing sucked beyond suck.  It was a horrible waste of my time.  They even had Paul Pierce and Ray Allen mic'd up and I didn't hear them say more than two words.

Just a crappy, crappy, crappy broadcast.  Horrible.  I feel bad for hyping it up.  Ugh.

    I entirely agree but you should have came much sooner. They actually showed a good amount of bball in the beginning.

    That was like someone giving you a cake on your birthday, and then letting all of your friends eat it while you watch in hunger.

    Thank you for the warning as I will not clog up my DVR with this. Well, my girlfriend’s DVR, but you know what I mean.

    The thing started at 7, right? I saw the whole thing. I didn’t see a good amount of basketball.

    I agree, that was awful. The only thing I got out of the entire broadcast was that now I have to start worrying about KGs SHINS. Thanks Doc. For this I watched that video-game-Kobe 35 times.

    Half hour? Then why is it on for 2 hours later on? It starts at midnight and goes till 2 am on NBATv. I hope they just don’t repeat it 4 times.

    Whoa. That was bad. That was Lamar Odom & Klhoe Kardashian bad.

    Comon man I enjoyed that. When they get Pierce on the whole thing gets so funny, those guys just really have a good time and its funny b.c I watched denver and LA training camps as well but bostons is just so much more fun and the guys just seem like they enjoy being together. I have no complaints about this broadcast so far!!

    Yeah, that was pretty lackluster stuff. The direction was indeed horrible. But if you stuck around for the entire 2 hours you do end up hearing Paul and Ray mic’d up. Ray discussing shooting with Eddie was very cool.
    Surprised in you saying that it was a complete waste of your time. It was new Celts footage etc….how is that a waste of time? Disappointing sure. Waste of time. No way.

    Not alot of bball, I agree, but it was ok. I’m a sneakergeek, but I just liked getting to see the new kicks Pierce was wearing. Don’t fret fellas-in 3 days, we’ll get some actual game action…
