    A few months back, I came here seeking your thoughts as I ventured off to cover my first MLB game. Tomorrow (Monday), I delve into the NBA and seek those same pieces of advice. What is the schedule like pre- and post-game? Anything I need to know other than to spend the entire game IMing my friends, cheering for the home team and awkwardly staring at players in the locker room?

    Make sure you have solitaire on your computer.

    Done. I was also going to ask about how to dress, but I decided to just wear my favorite player's jersey, some mesh shorts and sandals instead. Oh, and a headband and wristbands.

    Just about everything worthwhile happens before the game -- coach does his thing, locker room is open, shootaround, etc.

    Knock out what you need to during that time, cover the game and then do the post-game stuff.
