The most anticipated NBA season in the recent memory begins with a bum on Tuesday night as LeBron James and the new look Heat battle with robust Celtics. There are 21 reasons to look at what an unforgettable season is promising. Because 20 reasons is not enough.
21st Start-Up I'm a young, high quality team. The Oklahoma City Thunder is not listed here as well, because the stage went well. I'm thinking of teams like Milwaukee Bucks, Sacramento Kings, Los Angeles Clippers and yes, even Minnesota Timberwolves. Okay, so Wolves do not fit the "quality" prerequisite, but I'm still wondering Michael Beasley's reaction to a new environment. I think David Kahn and I are the only ones who still believe in Beasley's talent. David Kahn's agreement is just one thing; you are an idiot. In my defense, a Minnesota sports team should be good for 141-138 heroes against Golden State Warriors and Phoenix Suns. This is fun, do not you?
20th Yao Ming Healthy? Still good? Will you do Christmas? All fair questions. The Rockets seem to limit their playing time throughout the season for less than 25 minutes. If their plan is working, it is a healthy Ming and it is arguably the West's deepest bench in April. With a similar note, do you see Greg Oden full season? Fairness in Portland, not like anyone who was edited after Oden was a standout player. Oh, right, Trail Blazers passed Kevin Durant. Do not worry, Portland. This error will only haunt you in the next 10 to 12 years. Then everything will be over. Seriously, though I sometimes forget that Oden is still in the NBA. In the last two seasons he played less games than Allen Iverson. Oden is only 47, 22, so there is not much time for development and most centers will take longer. However, when the player with whom the franchise has passed, breaks through the championship, the world and the winning hearts, Oden has some promise.
19th Animosity is back. I've been complaining about this for years. The NBA is too sensitive. Everyone is friendly. The bad-blooded rivalry between players has ceased, and so on. Stb. Summer 2010 changed all this. It's just about every team destroying Miami Heat. Celtics hates anyone who is not green. LeBron James is the name of everyone. The whole tournament is the top of this year. The tensions are high. I can not wait.
18th The eighth event of the Eastern Conference will be intense. Do not forget good basketball. In fact, I could not even name it as a playoff race. It will look much like a game. After the players of the obvious game (especially Hawks, Celtics, Heat, Bucks, Bulls, Magic), there was not much left. The Knicks are probably a shoe entry to one of the final venues because the East is so bad. Charlotte was the result of hard defense and the balance of prizes last season. Even in a year that Larry Brown is likely to not keep Bobcat players investing for a full season so they come out. The Cavaliers … Well, we do not have to go through it, but we did it. Raptors, Pistons, and Pacers also lacked the shot. This is the 76ers, Wizards and Nets potential victim of the CSI Miami first round.
17th My Beloved 76ers . I admit this special "reason to just watch" is just for me and the other eight 76er fans. Obviously, it's as painful as me, I look at my team. Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner have scored a goal and optimism this season. After a sad pre-season, they were more likely to have panic and hopelessness. Doug Collins is already suffering from migraines and dizziness, so he can resign two weeks before Christmas without being possessed. Actually, I really support this. They were devastated when the 76s decided for Collins that he and Kevin Harlan were my favorite NBA broadcast crew. After Collins came back to the playoffs and the Sixers headed for the lottery, the # 1 scoreline shot would be the perfect season. Keep this thought. If we were to market any Elton Brand and Andre Iquodala, then that would be the perfect season. Okay, I did it.
16th The Rookies Every year we look at which newcomers will be (Hasheem Thabeet) and they will be excellent (Tyreke Evans, Steph Curry, Brandon Jennings). John Wall looks like a sure thing. I spent a decade when Allen Iverson rolled over to the defenders and jumped in a hurry to pass. John Wall is playing the same, maybe even faster. In Utah, I think Gordon Hayward will have a greater impact than expected because he is the master of Jerry Sloan, who makes the most of it (see Wesley Matthews and Paul Millsap). I also count my mind at my desk every time I make DeMarcus Cousins set up 20 and 10 while Evan Turner stat is read; 4 points, 8 TO.
15th Chicago Bulls Perhaps offseason's favorite move was in addition to Chicago's Kyle Korver, as he perfectly welcomed Bulls' best player (Derrick Rose). Korver, who is connected to more than 50% of last year's year, will release the show for Rose when he slides into the cup and will pay competitors for blockage of the band. But Rose and Korver do not want to look at Bulls. Joakhim Noah has. Noah is the simplest player in the championship. It does not strike the teams with scoring, but it certainly limits the resistance of the attackers and the midfielders. Many players came out and said I was not afraid of Miami Hey. Noah is the only one I really believe in. The guy is scary. Last season, LeBron James called the ball when James danced on the dark line in his victory over the Bulls, saying a lot about Noah. Not James or Heat or anyone else intimidating. Noah's point: "I hate this guy, but if he's on my team, I love him."
14th Oklahoma City Thunder They are the fashionable choice to challenge Los Angeles Lakers and even represent the West Conference at the NBA Finals. If the phenomenon is 22 years old like Kevin Durant, nothing is impossible. The contact list is filled and the atmosphere is teamwork and the winner. Wonderfully, the Thunder hires only five, 26 or older players. Although I really enjoy this team, I do not think they will reach the final of the conference. So far, Thunder has lost the playoff round of 1. This is a teammate's experience. They never went to a season like a notorious team. In this season, your opponents will do their best to face the NBA's lovers. The Thunder will no longer be ignored. In the game season 82, the target on its back is much harder than under the radar as OKC has done in the last two seasons. How they react to the pressure of fans, media and opponents, will be a stunning story of the season.
13th The decisive playoff spot at the West Conference Lakers, Jazz, Mavericks, Spurs, Blazers, Thunder and Rockets have to reach the post season. If Carmelo Anthony is traded as expected, then I do not expect Denver to be a mix, leaving a space open. Can the Sunok run out? (Steve Nash does not think, "They're probably going to hire us not to be on the stage.") Will Memphis or the Clippers overtake the move? Chris Paul gives Hornets a shot? It may not be nice, but the eighth race must be entertaining on the stretch.
12th Carmelo Anthony where will the earth be? This is a predetermined conclusion that he will not finish the season with Denver. Where it trades, it changes the NBA landscape. When playing with Amare Stoudemir in New York, the Knicks will become an eastern racer and will win a potential NBA title when Chris Paul knocks New Orleans and joins the Knicks a couple of years ago. If you join the Bulls, Clippers, or Rockets, they will dramatically improve their competitors.
eleventh Chris Paul Returns While having an exceptional year in the 08-09, I feel that Chris Paul is irrelevant as the Hornets gave 2-0 a chance at San Antonio Spurs in the 2008 WSOP semifinal. Paul seems to be quite healthy in the 2010 season, as he looks to redeem his throne as the NBA's top defender. Although Paul will return a few seats, the New Orleans Hornets still do not reach the postsyness.
10th Deron Williams's Continued Rise Williams is one of my top five favorites and is currently the "NBA Best Point Guard". Tell me what you want about its shortcomings (it does not attack enough frame, hair, etc.), but Williams is looking forward to it. If you see it taking a quick break, you just know it pulls up and cares for three people. I nod and smile every time.
ninth Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson in TNT within the NBA . I DVR is meaningless regular season games just for fast forward to the halftime and the post-game show. I love these guys. He said good.
8th Dwight Howard was Superman now? Orlando Magic lost all round around the Heat, the Celtics and the Bulls. While they did not agree with the rogues of the enemies of the Eastern Conference, the Captain's Magic team caught minus the loss of Matt Barnes to LA. As far as priceless, continuity is still not enough to kick Miami Heat or Boston Celtics. Dwight Howard is enough – only when he reaches or even approaches the attacker's potential. Only time will tell How Howard's hands-on experience with Hakeem Olajuwon is the result of the marketing department or Howard's real desire. If the latter, the Heat kryptonite lies a few hundred miles north of Miami. Howard, an effective offensive game, would totally terrorize Heat. Even LeBron James, one of the world's largest physical copies, will not be able to withhold Howard's strength. Does Howard Become Superman or Masquerade as a Superman? The answer to this question can determine the Eastern Conference.
7th Each player, coach, referee, GM and owner is essentially a contract year . If you know something about sports, then you know that fans can make better use of contract years. Players try harder, focus, and raise their new height. No, that does not mean that everyone with the NBA is looking for a new contract after the 2010-2011 season. This is not a financial year contract, it's only theoretical. With the threat of exclusion, this may be the last of these players, coaches, and so on. Get their talents. We will all be lost if closure occurs, but one of the threatening threats we all won. And if in this paragraph there is nothing to make sense, because I'm spoiled, look at it because the NBA might not be in the next season. OK thank you.
6th Known Three-Peat. Okay, Kobe Bryant is on the second three peat. Wait, wait; Did anyone else lead a team to two separate peaties? Oh, he's right. It was Michael Jordan. If Kobe pulls out, then the sixth race is likely to be the hardest. The Lakers are still the best team in the league, but the riders break the gap over the offseason. Let's talk about Kobe. I'm not a big fan but wonderful. We are constantly waiting for him to lose the edge of this race track, making him the best killer and the most fearsome teammate. Still, he continually improves his play, he continually reduces his sports. Although I'm constantly attacking him, I've learned to appreciate Kobe in recent years. His talents are beyond his desire for grandeur. So, enjoy her while she's still there.
5th The San Antonio Spurs have one more run. I must say that I am not impartial here. Although I'm a 76ers fan, there's a team on my side. This team was Spurs as David Robinson entered the league. With the exception of ESPN John Hollinger, Tim Duncan and Spurs did not take the racers into consideration. San Antonio was paralyzed by Tony Parker's health last season. Parker has passed the international game last summer and is totally relaxing for a last race. Despite the fascinating newcomer campaign, DeJuan Blair has also corrected the offsason to improve the offense. Tomorrowmore, the Tiago Splitter will contribute to a very necessary frontline depth, and George Hill will continue to improve. If the Spurs find the shoot on their contact list (hello, James Anderson) and get Richard Jefferson more than a skeptic, then it's not unreasonable to see them seize Western 2 or 3 seeds. After years of good semi-finals and young stars, San Antonio recently left the sunset.
4th Revenge is in the minds of Boston Celtics . Do not you feel the feeling Kevin Garnett and Co. are embarrassed since throwing away the game from the 2009 NBA Finals Week? I think a motivated and focused team is like the 2007 Celtics, which has led to wire wires. If you're wondering why the 2010 Celtics was built, let me explain. Do not forget the second film of The Lord of the Rings trilogy when Aragorn describes Saruman's army as "an army that serves one purpose: killing the world of people"? Well, this Boston-Celtic army has been bred for two purposes: destroying Miami Heat in paint and destroying Pau Gasol and the Los Angeles Lakers. I know they are not unpopular with Boston, but I like Celtics. I look forward to knowing whether they can maintain this passion for eight months.
3rd Kevin Durant can steal the hypothetical "torch" of LeBron James. He is the most prolific goal scorer he has seen in the championship for decades. He can easily score 30. He has all the tools of a superstar and more importantly, humility and motivation are D-Leaguer. There is no upper limit now. All that LeBron James was wrong about this season was Durant right. He quietly extended the contract, endorsing his troops (even though two unofficial teams appeared on the Sports Illustrated cover) and was the unquestionable leader of the US national team who had to be humiliated at the FIBA World Cup. The future of the championship is bright, especially at Durant at the driver's seat.
2nd Miami Heat Three superstars merged into the most important part of their career to win more titles. Money remained on the table (though in smaller quantities) and the egos were verified on the door. While the egos have an impact on the team, they eventually determine the success of Miami Heat. Are there two NBA players in the first three players who played the same team after having played the same role in their previous troupe? No, I can think of it. Therefore, the 2010-2011 NBA season revolves around Miami Heat.
first To love or hate you, LeBron James is the number one reason to look at this year's NBA. For some, whatever he will be successful. Others will have all the bugs, even if they win an address. The new Nike trade (with great advertising) is a painless, ignorant, narcissistic, rebellious and immature hero. Regardless of your cut; LeBron continues to be the most talented player in the NBA. Since the end of last year, it has become the most controversial and polarized. And so, from October to June, we are all listening.
