Curious if this happened in other games moving forward from yesteday - very moving, at the beginning of the Raps / Spurs game, when each team let the "24"-second shot clock run out, in each teams' first possession, in honour of Kobe.
Incredibly surreal - watching the players just standing around, waiting out the clock, the At+T Centre quiet as a library, my throat getting lumpy (again). Even after the first two rejected possessions, there was a significant pause (a very long minute or so) and I wondered for a sec if whether or not these guys were going to actually be able to continue on. And then slowly, the first few trips, for each team, were wierdly hesitant-looking, like they were not at all into this. Then Siakam became a machine as the game's flow and rhythm gradually picked up.
