I was just over on ESPN, and the site currently has a SportsNation poll up asking "Do you care if the NBA season starts on time?" Currently, with over 50,000 people voting, 74% say they don't care. That's a huge number! 71% of people in Massachusetts don't care. 69% in California. 72% in Texas, home of the reigning champions. How can that many people, on a site devoted entirely to sports and visited entirely by sports fans, not care if the season starts on time? Do that few people actually care about basketball, or are people just so engrossed in football at the moment that they haven't begun to think about what would happen to the NBA?
