After a long, and harsh lockout, we finally get to see some sexy NBA action. A league where superstars rule the world and hold their owners for ransom, and a league that offers the amazing talents of referee Joey Crawford. Chris Paul is a Laker Clipper after the NBA chose to veto Chris Pauls original destination for basketball reasons.

Last season saw the Big Three win not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, not seven, but ZERO championships after losing to the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals. Nowitzki and Kidd finally got their rings, and Chris Bosh cried. Derrick Rose surprisingly won the MVP, and the Bulls led the league with the most wins (i think), but lost to the Heat in the ECF. Memphis surprised a few people and told the world that the Grizzlies won't get pushed around anymore. Also, sources confirm that Rusell Westbrook still hasn't passed the ball to Kevin Durant.

So what will happen this season? Who will win the finals? MVP? Coach of the Year? ROokie of the Year? Who will come out of the West/East? And WHere will Dwight End up.


Here are my Predictions:
MVP: Kevin Durant
Coach of the Year: Vinny Del Negro (say whuuuuuuuuuuut?!)
ROTY: Kyrie Irving
ECF: Bulls Heat
WCF: Lakers Thunder
East: Heat
West: Thunder
Finals: Heat

Bold Prediction: LeBron will have less hair than the NBA Finals trophy before the end of the season.

What say you!!

I'm surprised they didn't cancel the All Star Game. I would think that in an abbreviated season, the All Star Game would be canceled in order to facilitate more non-All Star games.

Nope. The All Star game is a chance to make a lot of $ something the NBA will never pass up on.

I've got a bigger problem with Sheridan's rankings although he gets a ton of respect for not going overboard with the Clippers.

Having the bulls first and the spurs and magic ahead of the lakers leads me to believe that Sheridan is retarded.
