Once again the quest begins. Seems like this could be the toughest or the easiest of them all.
Lakers are favored by many to win it all. Others have the unholy union in Miami. The east is a beast, but the west won't be a cake walk either.
LAKERS are favored by everyone. How healthy will Kobe be? Will Bynum ever be healthy and productive? The additions and the rookies look nice. It should be a good run.
Gotta always watch out for Portland, Jazz, Nuggets, Houston, up and coming Thunder, not dead yet Spurs, and what's this... a Clippers sighting.
Miami is favored for obvious reasons. Then the Celtics though when talent is on a similar level, gotta go with the physical team usually. Orlando really hasn't lost much and could give either team a run...
Some fun teams to watch out east too. The wizards with their elite rookie, the reinvigorated bulls, atlanta still has a lot of potential, and the Bucks could make some noise. More fun than anything else in that group. Only Chicago could crack the top 3 imo.
Probably some other teams that deserve a look at. Let em rise or remain forgotten. They all have talent nowadays.
As usual it's all about health. Hard to get too excited until later in the season and the playoffs.
The east is underway with Celtics beating Miami and their LeBron Dillinger gang as I type this.
LET THE GAMES BEGIN!
