NBA 09-10 Thread

Recommended Posts

The NBA season started again last night. Big wins for Lakers and Celtics, predictably. I was expecting the Cleveland Cavaliers to take the Celtics, they've been looking good in pre-season - the Shaq/LeBron duo's looking promising - but it wasn't to be. I still reckon they're in with a shout for the title this year though.

Anyone else into basketball? Discuss here.

If dwayne wade gets ANY help offensively this season, heat should get the 5/6 seed in the east. Which would please me. Beasley will hopefully get 30+ mins a game this season, that should help if he breaks out this year.

Had to find a new team to support this year after last season was a bit of a downer what with Seattle Supersonics no longer.

Denver all the way good start for them!

Surprised it took the Cavs so long to get a win. The Heat are looking fantastic this year though. Dwayne Wade's surpassed 10,000 points for Miami now, he's just incredible.

And Beasley is looking like a top pick now. Even J O'Neill isn't looking like a cripple, I am a happy bunny.

Internets, there's always a decent stream somewhere.

sorry to sound really picky, but how decent are they normally? I'm very easily annoyed by glitchy internet video stuff! Thanks in advance!

I like the Celtics but there is too many games/its on too late at night for me to follow it properly unfortunately

Quality depends man. It can be a very nice HD stream or a really nasty one. You've just got to look around and find the best one.

It's tough to keep up with all the games, nba.com does a nice video called the "daily zap" which is a 5min breakdown of all the results from the night before. Handy for those of us who can't be up late to watch em all.

Anyone see Dwayne Wade's dunk over Anderson Varejao? It was incredible!

It was.

What about Brandon Jenning's?? 55 as a rookie reminds me of AI in the day, less attitude thankfully.

I watched a documentary about Len Bias last night. So sad, and i'd never even heard of him. Apparently the guy could've been bigger than Jordan.

This whole Lebron story has reignited my interest in basketball. I might even pick a new team to follow, my first since the 93/94 Bulls.

My teams have always been Heat/Rockets. Hopefully in for a good season. Until someone stands on Yaos toe. Miami will be great... *crosses fingers*

The Knicks acquisition of Amar'e Stoudemire could be huge. But Bosh/LeBron/Wade might be the new Pippen/Jordan/Rodman.

Speaking of that rumours are that they are trying to get Melo and Chris Paul to go with Amare. That would be an impresive trio also.

That would be insane. Could be a fantastic season. Or totally shit, with three or four teams totally dominating. Ah well.

Me and some pals organised a game of hoops on Thursday, first game since school, i'd say it was about NBA standard. I kid you not somebody scored a 3-pointer that bounced off the ground first...

Haha, nice.

Anyone actually any good at basketball here (obviously Sam)? I can do a pretty mean medium-range jump shot and on a rare occasion, a 3 pointer, but useless at close range. Y'all got mad skillz? Let's play some time.

Anybody keeping up with this season? All star is over with and now it's trades galore.

Williams just getting traded is a bit of a shock! The Knicks looking like next season they could be 3/4th in the East with Melo now.
