Default NBA General Discussion......

The season starts tonight!

7:00 — Wizards v Cavs
8:00 — Celtics v Heat and many speculate that Sully will be Boston's first openning day rookie starter since Paul Pierce in 1999!
10:20 — Mavs v Lakers

I'm so pumped!

I love NBA...

This is the time of year that I keep a weell stocked fridge of Miller Lite so I can stay up and watch the 10:40 games after the wife and kids go to bed...

As the winter/NBA season progresses, my work gets slower and slower so I can afford to stay up 'til 1:30 watching the west coast games and I can still get about 6+ hours of sleep.....



Sully starting is perfect for Boston. That's why they're such a good franchise. They stole this guy with the 22nd? pick!!

OKC's first game without The Beard tonight against the Spurs at 9:30.

My early prediction for the Thunder's season is that the Harden trade will have an affect on their regular season schedule; maybe pushing them back to be a two or three seed... But I don't think it'll hurt them in the playoffs after Kevin Martin has had time to adjust to being the #6, and a lack of depth can be overcome with a youthful core that can play a lot of minutes.

I think Russell Westbrook has the potential to be a top 5 guy in the league this season. He has the explosion and scoring ability of Derrick Rose or Allen Iverson with absolutely none of the injury concerns, and is turning into a lock-down defender on the perimeter.

I agree with most of that...


Early prediction for the Finals...

Miami over Philly in the East

Memphis over OKC in the West..


Miami over Memphis in the Finals in 5 games....

From @seandeveney Mike Brown may be in trouble in LA. Mike Brown in trouble? Lakers president Jim Buss voices confidence, but questions loom - NBA - Sporting News

I still wonder how Mike Brown got the job in the first place. Not that he's a terrible coach, I just don't like the fit... Especially for an organization with the kind of budget LA has. Mike definitely feels more like an eastern conference coach to me.
