game 2 philadelphia 76ers Vs Boston Celtics Received a brief shot of life when it was announced that Joel Embiid was returning to the floor. He was ready to play after suffering a knee sprain that was more severe than the audience was led to believe, and is ready to go after about two weeks. The 76ers held out in the first half, but the second half yielded the expected result as the Celtics won 121–87. What was unexpected was the drone that was circling around the TD Garden court like a dove.

come on, really

NBA, enough with the in-game surprises. It was bad enough when a throbbing straw was piled on my face with them without warning dr pimple popper commercials, In fact, that was the worst part of the playoffs ever, and thank god they were quickly put away.

Yet, to watch an indoor sporting event and see a drone hanging over the painted area, Saw a little apocalypse. At Least Those NFL Cameras Are On Wires Because They’re Launched Across Stadiums To Get 360 Degrees Idea. One moment I’m watching Al Horford back down to PJ Tucker and the next a full metal bug is coming across my television screen. I understand that everything that comes into an NBA arena goes through a security check, but as a kid who grew up watching Independence Day And mars attack, It’s hard to imagine a laser not disintegrating one of the hoops.

Shockingly, the picture it provided was unimpressive, of a machine flying over a basketball court. When TNT Switched From Drone To Visual I Felt Like I Was Working A Special Ops Mission Duty, The scene was not aesthetically pleasing. It didn’t get me any closer to the floor. It made me look down on the court from the Universal Studios ride. Adam Silver creeped me out of Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. I’m perfectly satisfied with the standard view that normal cameras and my high-definition television provide.

No need to tinker with every single aspect of the viewing experience. I don’t need camera angles that move around during big NFL and college football games. When they hover around crime. What’s the point of being so close if you can’t hear the play call?

I don’t even need the view from a drone camera that looks close enough to the court that it can be picked off by a deflected pass. The 24-second clock in the free-throw arc was already excessive. Athletes provide all the necessary special effects. The audience doesn’t need anything fancy.

Make games as painless as possible, NBA. I navigate city traffic in much the same way every day, which provides enough daily surprises to last a lifetime. i can see without the alien spaceship Basketball court circling equipment.
