I used the search function and could only find topics similar to this, so I figured I'd just go ahead and make one for this season since today is opening day and all.

I'm watching Heat/Bulls right now. I'm not sure if this is really one of the worst officiated games I've ever witnessed in my life, or if I just feel that way because I'm not the biggest Heat fan out there. The Bulls have done a decent job making their way back into it here in the final two minutes but they seem to be blowing it already.

Clippers/Lakers next but Kobe's still out so the Clips should wrap it up pretty easily.

So who ya got? I'm all about OKC this season but I love the Rockets as well.

I think they're playing the Bobcats tomorrow, right?

Should be a good game for the Rockets

Pleasantly surprised with my Lakers tonight! Considering we were 0-4 against the Clippers last year, it was a good opening night

Damn that Lakers bench. Almost had every bench player taking double digit shots, of course Syracuse product Johnson was the lone bench player to not have a good shooting night.

My Bucks are terrible, re-building year. Even tho, our roster is decent enough to just keep us out of the lottery. Not looking forward to this year for Milwaukee.
Big Kobe fan, and it sucks to see him in his tail end, I hope he can still perfrom at a top level when he is back from his injury. It will be a rough year for both the teams i cheer for (Lakers and Bucks)

Miami Heat

I'm from Miami but I'm not a huge heat fan. I just cheer for my home sport teams

Derrick Rose better be good this year for sitting out when the Bulls needed him the most in the playoffs.

I am also expecting a big year out of Kobe when he comes back. Just to prove to everybody he ain't going nowhere.

any expectations from the Rockets with Harden and Howard? I know Howard has already started bitching about sharing the paint with Asik, which is really stupid because they could be so good defensively like the Grizzlies big men. I'm not feeling their PG or SF spots but a happy Dwight can offset that

Rose did the right thing by sitting out last year IMO. They wouldn't have beaten the Heat either way. Seemed like 90% of their roster was injured.

Agreed, Rose was scared.

San Antonio and Oklahoma are still the top two teams in the Western Conference. Houston will win a lot of games during the regular season, but we will see how they do in the playoffs.

Bulls/Knicks right now. I'm hoping this is less one-sided than Bulls/Heat.

Clippers/Warriors afterwards. Both should be solid games.

since GS sucks because they lost to the Clippers, Cavs vs Mavs

seriously though, I completely forgot about what Dallas did this offseason. Calderon running the point will be really good. Ellis as a legit 2nd scoring option (if he doesn't commit 7 turnovers a game like last night). Dalembert if healthy can provide the interior toughness they lacked since Chandler left. Blair can be a decent bench big man and knows how to win coming from the Spurs.

They need another guy off the bench imo to crack the top of the West. Right now I say they finish between 5th and 8th, pending the health and consistency of Carter and Marion.

So the Lakers spank the Clips, the Warriors spank the Lakers, and then the Clips spank the Warriors.

dafuq?

On that note, my Thunder will likely get spanked by the T-Wolves tonight. We really need Westbrook back.

Rockets are looking mighty polished against the Mavs so far. Heat/Nets are having a good battle, and as I predicted, my Thunder's getting crushed by the T-Wolves. We desperately need Westbrook back for games like this one.

I pretty much agree with everything here.

I had the chance to watch the Mavs play against the Rockets a few nights ago and they looked good, but obviously the Rockets are looking really strong right now as well.

I'm pumped for the return of Russell Westbrook tonight.

Clippers just tied their record for first half points. They put up 78 against Houston right now. If Griffin didn't pick up two fouls near the end there they would have had more. Fun game to watch so far

Yeah, that was an exciting game. Houston was able to at least keep themselves into it up until the fourth quarter when the Clips just took over. I was worried about them after they lost their opener against the Lakers but they've looked very sharp ever since. The Rockets have been looking solid as well so it was a good win for the Clips.

Steph Curry with a triple double. Iggy with a great shooting night dropping 32. I'm not feeling their depth at guard or SF though. Speights and O'neal will give good minutes off the bench at the 4 and 5 but aside that it is pretty thin. Maybe when Barnes gets healthy it'll help but they need that depth when the games count.

I'd love to see them go far this season

Once Barnes comes back they will have some depth as you mentioned, also they have Green as well who is a good versatile player. Both Thompson and Iguodala can switch to SF because of their height and body make up
