NBA thread 2012-13

One week til the season starts

In the West with all due respect to OKC and the Spurs of most interest will be the Lakers and Clippers for me. The Clips added some quality though in some cases ancient talent and the Fakers finally got Dwight Howard. I look forward to their early season meeting.

In the East I hope the Brookyln Nets can do well in their new surroudings. Meantime Miami have added more depth with all-stars Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis coming in.

I'll be predictable and say Fakers vs Heat in the finals.

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur, Jarmila Wolfe.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze

Re: NBA thread 2012-13

Lakers lost every pre-season game

Miami look like the favorites in the East. But I like what the Celtics have done with their bench: Jason Terry, Courtney Lee, Leandro Barbosa, Jeff Green is back.

It will be funny on opening night at Miami v Boston when they get their rings. I like what JVG said about Ray: He should stand with the Celtics in his old uniform.

I will be predictable as well but will go Heat over Lakers in 6.

We're going to be friends. Really think the Clips have a shot at conference finals, they just need to shore up their defence. Hope the Lakers lose early and often, as always. Never been a Howard fan, so its too bad I'll have to root against Nash.

Shocked at Harden being traded, don't think it helps OKC at all, and hurts them a little bit. Should be interesting to see what they're able to do in the first month or so, but they're still a big threat.

Anyone but Miami in the East, obviously...would like the Raptors to do well, think Brooklyn is being way overhyped and would do well to grab the 7/8 spot. Hope Rose heals up quickly and saves Chicago from being 'meh'.

Re: NBA thread 2012-13

I like the Clips and the Griff, but they will be downed by the Spurs somewhere in the post-season. The Lakers new combo are gonna fail. Miami will reach the finals again. Tim Duncan will have a mini resurgence. The Spurs management will be amazing. The Bobcats will win 10 games.

Re: NBA thread 2012-13

OKC really shoud've won it last season (blame Harden?)

Any team except those Fellowship of the Rings, Heat and Lakers

The Pistons have continued last year's policy of leaving the arena after the 3rd quarter.
