Any hoops fans?
Bobcats @ Rockets tonight- should be a comfy win. I'm eager to see if Howard and Asik can play together when it counts. Asik has been a whiny b**ch ever since the Howard signing and doesn't want to be a backup. I saw Howard straight up bowl him over while going for a rebound the other night. I have a feeling Daryl Morey is planning to trade Asik very soon since his value is high and he's a proven big man after such a great season last year. We could use a stretch forward who can hit shots and play defense, as well as someone to back up Dwight.
Who ya got this year? I can't see the Heat being dismantled in the east this season. Chicago would be next closest contender in my mind, but they need to stay healthy. The west is wide open. OKC, Houston, Golden State, Clippers all have legitimate shots. The Spurs always get into the mix but at some point you'd expect a decline. A few other teams could play spoiler, but find themselves on the outside looking in- Portland, Minnesota are two examples.
