Last Live Basketball Game You Attended? (Include pic if you have one!)

Mine was the Maine Red Claws vs Westchester Knicks back in January. My wife and I were traveling to visit her parents and we managed to catch a game while in Portland, Maine. Awesome time, place was packed, and got to see Tacko Fall.

Man, it's been a while, mostly because we haven't had an NBL team in some time (despite being the birthplace of the league). Probably 1999, to be honest. Getting over to the States and attending an NBA game is definitely on the bucket list, though.

Of course, I did attend the 2007 Draft as part of the NBA Live 08 Community Day festivities. We were seated in the row in front of the guys who were heckling Stephen A. Smith during the breaks. That also included a tour of Madison Square Garden earlier in the day.

Sweet! I've never been to MSG even though I'm a native New Yorker. :shock: I'm in Denver now so I've seen the Nuggets many times but not this year. I usually go to the university games which have cheap tickets just so I can enjoy some live hoops.

It was pretty cool to rock up there in a limo for the Draft. It got people excited too, until they realised it was a bunch of nobodies getting out of it. :lol:

They're constructing a new stadium, so hopefully we'll be able to get a team back at some point. The NBL has understandably been careful about expansion since falling on hard times and losing a bunch of times several years back. It would be nice to have a local team to support again, and games to attend fairly inexpensively.

Last NBA game would probably be Lakers vs Clippers back when it was Lin & Kobe vs CP3 so a long time ago

I've seen college basketball more recently, my alma mater locally

Went to a Knicks-Heat game during the 2012-13 season, the last time they were relevant....haven't been back since, and I won't be for a long time.

That's cool, I like the college games as well, plus a little easier on the wallet!

Yeah, I don't go to tons of games myself but I try to hit one game a year if I can.

Went to a Celtics vs Warriors game on January 30th, they did a Kobe tribute before the game.

Not a well played game, it was messy. But that was the last game I attended.

Last basketball game I went to was a FIBA qualifier - Australia V Hong Kong - with Arcane. It didn't draw a huge crowd, because either people didn't know about the game or they didn't think it was going to be competitive, but it was still fun to watch live. Had pretty decent seats too.

Awesome thread idea... Nets @ Cavs when Deron Williams, Sundiata Gaines (a player I randomly remember playing lol) and Kris Humphries were on the Nets... this was when Humphries was making the rounds and getting booed over the Kardashian thing. I had a couple chances to go when LeBron rejoined but decided against it... it's just not the same as when you're in high school, living and breathing the league.

Some of my favorites over the years were a LeBron/Carmelo duel, a playoff game when DeShawn Stevenson was doing the "I can't feel my face" thing and a rare look at the live Rockets squad that was actually playing T-Mac, Artest, Yao, etc. LeBron swatted the shit out of Yao... underrated? Just another day in the park.

I believe the first game I attended might've actually be a #8 Kobe in Cleveland but I was so young that I couldn't even see over the usher.

Yup that's the idea, plus I don't have to drive to LA which is never fun in traffic
