Welcome to Las Vegas, where dreams are made and crushed, the vomit flows like wine, and basketball fanatics in the full throes of withdrawal get a brief, week-long respite in the 150-degree summer heat.
Today the Knicks will take on the New Orleans Pelicans, with tip-off expected around 4pm EST. NBATV has your live coverage. Barring that, I’m sure Prokhorov has some Georgian prisoners riding hundred-year old stationary bikes powering an illegal feed from deep inside some Siberian tin mine. Just email him.
As a side note, we’ve sent along Bob Silverman — reporter, actor, man of a thousand glasses — to cover the action, so hopefully he’ll be sending along some swell dispatches.
