  • I’m pumped but a little nervous. Good guys 98 Lakers 93.

  • I’m so fired up, I can’t sleep, game come on at 4AM for me, and I’ll be watching live trying not to wake up my wife.

    I can’t get extremely worked up about this game. If the team itself can’t consistently get excited about playing (Charlotte, Dallas), I’m not going to. I hope they play well and maybe even win.
