Tonight, the National Basketball Association resumes its activities for the 2016/2017 season.

To all the basketball fans out here, congratulations and please accept my best wishes for an entertaining season full of jumping, dunking and plays that make you leap off the couch with a fist to your mouth yelling: “OOOOHHHHH!”

For those who don’t enjoy the sport, please look on the bright side because when professional basketball returns, so do professional basketball players and their shrinking mesh shorts. Enjoy the quads.
