Yeah I like Denver's plan of just getting as many good players as they can. Not sure what to think of Bynum to the Sixers or this new Hawks team.

I really want to see how the Nets five does. You don't see many starting lineups these days that have set positions/roles like they do.

Best season evar.

Nash won't have to guard westbrook. he just needs to do what he can and then have Dwight there to erase his mistakes

So Dwight helps and Perkins or Ibaka roll to the hoop for an easy basket. It was bad enough with Sessions. Nash will get eaten alive.

Bynum to the Sixers is either going to work REALLY well or Doug Collins will get fired at some point this year iMO.

Unless you're referring to "The Big Smooth" Sam Perkins, I don't think you can use that name and "easy basket" in the same sentence.

I think most teams will try and go small on the Lakers because the lack of perimeter shooting means you can double Dwight in the post without being punished for it. So I suspect that OKC will play a lot with Ibaka at Center on Dwight which will pull him out of the paint. Similarly the Heat will probably go Bosh/Battier/Lebron as their frontline and then just space the floor.

It's kind of sad that the best center of this era scares pretty much no one in the post. Amazing defender/rebounder--great on the putback...merely good in the post.

If it all works, Steve Nash you'd think will be a huge reason why.

Dwight Howard is an enigma to me, how can someone with seemingly so much athletic ability, way over everyone else in the league at his size, just improve pretty much zilch on the offensive end every year...

Sitting back with my hatorade in hand last night, and hoping to see San Antonio grab a fifth title only to see Ray Allen's shit eating grin while basking in the glory of a championship.

Because I don't care about basketball I was rooting for the Heat. I'm glad Lebron got another championship under his belt. That will pretty much ensure his legacy of greatness. If he can get another, all the better. But it was embarrassing listening to Magic Johnson slobber over James and Wade on Sportscenter the next day. Good Lord. Even Wilbon kept himself under control.

Ofcourse he's slobbering over James, he wants him on the Lakers when his contract is up

Screw Lebron. Least gracious player ever. His twitter handle is "KingJames" which about sums it up. He's an awesome player, but his smugness makes me root for a sweet downfall.

Quotes from the self proclaimed "king":

“Everywhere I’ve been, I’ve been the best player. I love being a leader, and I love being the best. It’s not about being cocky or selfish or anything like that. It’s just how I am.”

“I love sharing the ball with my teammates. I see a lot of things before my teammates see them.”

“Cleveland fans are awesome. But I mean, even my family gets spoiled at times watching me doing things that I do, on and off the court.”

Makes you just want him to win it all, doesn't it?

You know what Lebron doesn't have? A championship hairline.

It's always fun to see when people call out Lebron for smugness and love MJ at the same time.

Also everything things he said in those quotes is the truth

I guess put me in that category. Lebron will never touch the class that MJ had.
