At some point yesterday I happened to read somewhere that some Euroleague games were available on ESPN3. So I took a moment to check the ESPN3 schedule to see when we'd have a chance to watch Nikola Mirotic, who plays for Real Madrid. The next available game is next Thursday, November 10 at 3:45 p.m. ET (2:45 p.m. Chicago time). Real Madrid plays Partizan Belgrade (copy and paste FTW!). With the absence of the NBA, this may be little more than a sniff of glue for a hardcore drug addict who needs a fix, but I have to admit that I'm looking forward to actual game action involving someone who should ultimately help the Bulls win some games.
