Raptors playing win by the 3, die by the 3 this season.

If it gets them 50+ wins, fine.

Personally, I'm more of a Hornets kind of guy... mainly because the great Michael Jordan owns that team. Jordan will always be one of the greats.

Through these Piston eyes, Jordan is the smell off dog shit. Hate, hate, hate!!!!!

I was about to say the same thing. It can be very difficult for me to predict sports outcomes, but anything is possible. So we shall see what happens this season.

The NBA is a joke right now.? Yeah it's really interesting to follow a sport where I can tell you before the even starts who will be in the finals with the strongest of confidence.? When the two teams in the finals enter with playoff records of 12-0 and 12-1 respectively, I'd say your league has a problem.

As embarrassing as it is.... I'm a Laker fan... I know their season will be terrible, but I'm hoping it will be slightly better than last year.?

On the upside I can't wait to watch Golden State again this year along with the Twolves and Celtics! gonna be an interesting season!

Been a Lakers fan ever since Kobe started with them...?

This year there are legitimate rays of hope. All I ask for is to be around 30 wins by the end of the season... Let me believe they're making SOME sort of progress =/

The Lakers seem to have this bizarre combination of low expectations and exaggerated expectations this year...mostly a function of the whole Lonzo/Lavar thing thing...
I think they'll be entertaining and do quite well- probably in the high 30s in terms of wins.

I like BALL as a player... Hate the circus that his father brings to the picture. I'd be happy with 30 wins on the nose the way things have gone the last couple years. Anything beyond that would just be gravy!

I'm always excited when the NBA season starts. That excitement starts to wane over the next few weeks, picks up again around Christmas time, wanes and then excites me again after the Super Bowl and All Star break.


Should be some great games tonight. Kyrie the Celtic back in The Land and CP3 going against the defending NBA champion Dubs.

I freaking hate injuries in sports. Even with teams I'm not particularly fond of...

A few years back, my kid had a season ending soccer injury. He put on a tough face when he was on the field, but it was absolutely shattering. I can't imagine what Hayward is going through...
