It’s that time of the week again. Your FanPulse results are in, and we have our national question up first, which is “Should the NBA end its ban on marijuana?” It was a pretty lopsided return.
That’s a resounding victory for yeses, though maybe not quite as high as I would have thought considering that the NBA often skews to a younger, and therefore often more progressive, demographic.
I actually missed this quiz, as the beginning of my week was hectic, and I simply ran out of time, but I certainly would have picked yes.
Years back, I suffered a terrible back injury in a rec league game, and two surgeries later, I wound up with eight titanium rods and screws holding my spine together. The knife solved a lot of my issues, but not all of them, and I’ve been a chronic pain sufferer to some degree ever since. My state’s medical program was a life-changer for me, and I’m definitely on board with the healing powers, which would especially be useful for players in need of daily pain management or in times of injury recovery. The NBA has a chance to lead the way on this.
Enough of my spiel, and on to the fan confidence poll, where you’ll see that for the first time this season, it’s as high as it can possibly be (yes, bad marijuana innuendo, but true nonetheless).
Yep, we’re at 100 percent, and that’s even partially coming after the loss to the New York Knicks (poll results closed Tuesday afternoon). The Pocket Rockets are making an impact with the fan base. It shows that the Rockets are willing to do whatever it takes in thinking outside the box in order to get a leg up on the competition (now that’s how you combine three cliches in one sentence). It may pay off in a title, it might not, but at least the Rockets are willing to be bold in their approach, and there’s something to be said for that.
