I searched for an NBA thread, but could not find one. Is there any interest in the NBA? Basketball is my favorite sport to play, and is among one of four sports I watch regularly (the others being baseball, basketball, and tennis). As a fan of the Celtics since around the time Bill Russell played his final games with the team, I've seen a lot of thrills over the years, filled with ups and downs, and cherished memories. No. 17 for the Green is my all-time favorite player. Who will win it all this year? How strong are the Cavaliers this season? Are the Lakers a better team this year with Bynum back in the lineup? If Gasol and Odom play to their potential, can they win it all? I have my opinions, but I'd love to hear what others have to say.
