Was surprised to see that the NBA pre-season has started.

Watching the Rockets/Thunder game now


Look for the Lakers to put up a very strong push for the title

Jason Kidd is my favourite player and he too went to a team I can't stand

Brandon Roy looking pretty good for the T-Wolves last night. I had a feeling he would be back after his retirement, he needed a full year off to heal.

Man, if he can stay healthy, and Kirilinko has any resemblence to his former self, the Wolves should be pretty damn good. Hopefully Rubio can come back 100% from his knee injury. Should be an entertaining squad to watch.

Ive always been a Kobe fan, so I will be watching the Lakers a lot. Sad to see his career is coming to an end, but he still can perform at a high level. I am however, a Bucks fan. I think they have a better roster then the past couple years. Would love to see them make the playoffs and not the 8th spot. Maybe 6th or so, so they have a chance to move on.

Lakers vs. Bucks final...HA kidding.

Lakers vs. Heat (both teams got really strong in the off-season, Heat added depth which they needed and LA added a point guard which they needed and not just any PG, Nash, probably the best PG ever).

I think the Bucks might be in the hunt for one of the final 2 playoff spots if they can play any kind of defense at all. They have some talent at the big spots and a really good backcourt. My hopes aren't too high though. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me 14 out of 21 times in the past 21 years, shame on me.

I really like the moves they made since last season. If everyone stays healthy the Wolves should be looking at a decent seed in the playoffs I'm thinking. I'll be watching them as much as possible. Love has become one of my favourite players and I've always been a fan of Roy.

Still rooting for the Pistons surrounded by Knicks fans. I think the Pistons are still a few years and some draft picks and quality free agents away. Patience is starting to wear thin with Dumars. He needs to smarten up about the free agents. Hoping Monroe turns into a 20/10 player this year, Knight and Stuckey form a great backcourt and Drummond surprises all

Agreed with you Budge, as Love is one of my favorites now too.

I hear yah, we had our big chance in 2001 and the NBA seemed to screw us, cause they wanted Lakers vs. sixers. HA. I think they should be able to D up this year. They have some good young guys that can get it done. We need to sign Ellis and build a foundation around him, the kid can score. Jennings needs to become more of a pass first and let guys like Ellis, Ilyasova, Harris, Gooden and Dunleavy do the main scoring. I like our big guys this year too, Dalembert will help big time on D, that guy always killed the Bucks in the middle.
