This season is a very exciting one with interesting storylines.
Of course, the main story is the Miami Heat where you have the Lebron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh joining forces.
Some tagged them to break the winning record of the Michael Jordan-led Chicago Bulls but on their first game of the season, they experienced defeat in the hands of the previous Big Three of Boston.
Another interesting story to follow is how the Cavs will fare minus Lebron.
Then you have the return of Yao Ming in Houston, the Phoenix Suns minus Amare, The New York Knicks with Amare, the emergence of Durant, the New Jersey Nets under new management and coach and many more.
Still, the favorites to win the NBA finals trophy are the Lakers. Just imagine, a team with Kobe, Gasol, Bynum and Artest added with quality players like Matt Barnes, Theo Ratliff and Steve Blake. You have an even stronger defensive team.
The Magic and Celtics will surely try their best to unseat the Lakers.
The Celtics have a healthy Kevin Garnett and a strong bench in Robinson, Daniels, JO, Wafer and Davis.
The Magic will not settle for anything less than a championship trophy.
And don't forget the Spurs who on their first game showed they still can have a fighting chance in probably the last season for Duncan, Ginobili and Parker together. It appears that finally Richard Jefferson has adjusted although it's still the first game.
I pity Steve Nash though because his team got a downgrade with Turkoglu replacing Amare.
So these are just some of the reasons to follow the NBA this season. Of course I have to closely follow the results so I could win my fantasy basketball tournament. Enjoy!
