    To Creeper51,

    Going to a game is not even objectively better than staring at the wall. Different people enjoy different things, and there are many good reasons why one may choose not to (or be unable to) attend games.

    Nor is an individual's desire to experience a game or other entertainment through VR reason to assume that that individual sits around all day.

    Going to the game is objectivity better than sitting in your home. I don't care if people use it, but let's be smart, and realize that humans are meant to do things, not sit around all day.

    To Creeper51,

    I realize very well what going to an NBA game involves. I guess I just don't see how adding to the experience for those who for whatever reason can't or don't attend games takes away from the experience for those who do.

    You fail to realize that going to the game lends itself to other adventures, and other excitements. You are not simply consuming the game in your home alone, but you are living life, and creating experiences.

    Which you can't do at home as easily. Besides it's artistic expression.

    Anybody else thinking about waiting about 10 years for virtual reality to advance even more before diving into it?

    Half joking. But the speed of which this kind of technology advances is astounding. It feels like one step forward, followed by 2 steps forward, followed by 5 steps forward, and so on.

    The forward speed of advancement continues to increase. Great time to be alive!!

    To Multi,

    So going to an NBA game isn't being a consumer?

    @multi - Repect. There is not nearly enough poetry in the comments section of the D News.

    So not only due to technology have we all started to self segregate, but now we don't even need to go to a basketball game to enjoy the ambience, and emotion it brings.

    To live life, you just might,
    need to close your computer,
    The Real lights, are so nice,
    Just stop being a consumer.

    Plus we are going to see a dramatic increase in neck kinks.

    This is interesting to me. i live overseas in philippines and this is sparking some interest, especially with the jazz showing great competitiveness this year.

    For the optimal arena experience, VR subscribers should, every time they go to the kitchen for a snack, drop a $20 bill down the garbage disposal.
