Hey, good idea BG!
I was thinking of starting a basketball thread as well, but wasn''t sure if there was any interest for the sport around here.
Anyway, I think it's quite an open season, without any real favourites. Maybe a chance for dark horses like the Timberwolves or Mavericks to get their first title?
It will be interesting to see what Shaq can bring to Miami, how the Lakers fare with only Bryant and how LeBron James will develop in his second year.
Plus, I'll be keeping close watch to compatriots Dan Gadzuric and Francisco Elson (Bucks and Nuggets, resp)!
May the season be long and exciting!
