There are afew basketball fans on this site, and hopefully we can get some good discussion for the new NBA season getting ready to start in 2 months. Now, I know people usually start threads on their team, but theirs really not enough people to start a thread on just one team. That is why I created this thread so we can have all NBA talk here. Wether it's your favorite team playing, trade talk, coach talk, gm talk, player talk say it here. My favorite team is the Miami Heat, since I live in the area and although we were the worst team in the NBA last year, I am expecting the playoffs. Wade is back to top form, with Marion and Haslem to score and rebound the ball well, as well as bringing stingy defense. We have the #2 pick in Michael Beasley, who will be a star, and a solid 2nd round pick in Mario Chalmers from KU, who hit the clutch 3 to send the NCCA game into OT. We have some nice young players in Dorell Wright and Dequan Cook, who both can shoot, and are explosive to the rim. We need a center, and we have 3 men in Marion, Beasley, and Haslem who can play the 3 or 4. I expect this team to be a 4th or 5th seed, and if play exceptionally well, a 2 or 3 seed. Post about your team, and i'll leave my thoughts. So lets try and get this going.
