    As usual, there is a lot of parity in the NBA and every city has hopes of making the playoffs in a league where half the teams make it. I'm going out on a limb here and saying that my Warriors will make it this year:clap2:. Who's your team?

    Being from L.A. I've always been a Laker fan. But honestly I don't really care who wins the NBA title as long as it's a good series.

    I almost never watch a regular season game either, the playoffs are much more interesting.

    Sounds like you're from LA. No passion for sports, just a casual interest. It's ok. It's in the water you guys drink down there which comes from up here.
    I root for the warriors until they let me down and then I pick a backup team in the playoffs.

    I think you are thinking about several years ago before the Mullin era. Well I for one think Mullin did a fantastic job of bringing talent in, not trading them away. Oh yeah I forgot, he traded away the legendary Troy Murphy and the immortal Mike Dunleavy.

    I did hate his trading away Jason Richardson.

    But they have an extremely interesting group this year and now that Stephen Jackson wants out, it will be nice.

    But you're dead wrong about Nelson. He is a has-been, currently-is, and will-be as far as being a great coach. He's number one all time in wins. That ain't too shabby. Unfortunately he has often lacked personell with the warriors and he's not a good defensive coach, but he's still a great coach. They will do well this year, you mark my words.

    Monta Ellis, Anthony Morrow, Corey Maggette, Anthony Randolph, Andris Biedrins as your starting 5.

    The bench ain't too shabby either:
    Stephen Curry
    Cj Watson
    Ronny Turiaf
    Brandan Wright

    The Celts will be great again this year. Especially since they will have garnett back and won't be injury riddled. I think they would have beaten the Lakers if they were healthy.

    Well, not exactly. I love sports, I grew up playing Baseball and Football through H.S. I just can't get all upset about any team that doesn't send me a check! :lol:

    I'm in Vancouver, but I've always been a Knicks fan... John Starks babay!!

    but yah, obviously my hopes are LOW

    I was raised in Spain, and my fav. player is Pau... so I can sort of use that as an excuse to cheer for the Lakers and know a bit of what it feels like to not support a team that sucks
