I'm sorry I don't want to steal the thread from you but I was going to make a very similar one. I have a Canon EF 100mm 2.8L Macro IS USM, would that be sufficient for a basketball game? I'm planning to go to the Garden in the next couple of weeks.

It the bigger arena's 2.8 is usually good enough as the lighting tends to better than what you get in Middle and High Schools. One thing I found is to set a the custom white balance before you start shooting as that seems to help keep the visible noise a lot lower.
