I'm really looking forward to the season starting tomorrow too. I don't really have a favorite team, but trying to pick one to follow "more closely". Either way, its going to be a great year for hoops I think. I've always been a big NBA fan, and followed the Bulls religiously from 88-98, but things weren't the same after they broke the Bulls up, so I've been looking for a team ever since. I really enjoy Tracy McGrady's game, so maybe it will be Magic (even though they have basically zero chance at a title, as with the majority of the Eastern conference). Anyways, like OCB said, the west should be a tremendous race to keep an eye on. The Mavs could be shooting for several 150 point games this year too, when everyone's on. I'll admit I'm not the biggest Laker fan either (although I can admit they are a very good team), so the Shaq/Kobe thing is kind of funny to me, but I'm sure they will be dominant regardless of if they are getting along or not (I'm not so sure they ever REALLY have). Watching some of the young guys (LeBron, Melo) should be fun too. I hope people don't expect too much from "King James", but I do think he has the skills to be really good. I think Carmelo might have the better year this year though. Anyways, should be fun, can't wait for it all to start tomorrow night...good luck to all of your teams on the upcoming season though, hope its a great one .
