Last night the new NBA season began.
The Celtics got their rings and banner and beat the Cav's.
The Lakers are looking mighty good and beat the Trailblazers pretty handily.
Big questions this year:
Is this Clevelands year??? LeBron James only has what, 2 years left on his contract and he's likely to bolt if Cleveland can't get a championship.
Will Boston repeat??? Everybody's going to be gunning for them.
Can the Lakers cross that hurdle??? With Bynum back, the lakers front-court is probably one of the best (if not THE best) in the league. Gasol, Bynum, two 7 footers.
Is Greg Oden officially a bust??? In his first actual game (after missing all of last season) he get's hurt AGAIN and scored 0 points when he was in the game. Not sure how bad he's hurt, but we'll see. And when will teams learn to not draft players who have only 1 or 2 great games in a season in the top 5??? (Ryan Leaf anybody).
So what are your predictions???
I predict another Lakers/Celtics Finals with a different out-come. Lakers bringing the title back to LA (as long as their fore-mentioned front-court can stay healthy).
