Its been a long off season, one full of blockbuster trades and acquisitions, but the NBA season is upon us once again. Tonight the defending champs Boston Celtics will raise another championship banner into the rafters, but there will be no repeat. I must respectfully disagree with S. Evans, my colleague.
The Celtics fans will rejoice again, but that rejoicing will take place tonight while celebrating last season’s title, but not in June. No doubt the Celtics are still the best team in the Eastern Conference, but with the return of a chiseled Andrew Bynum, the Los Angeles Lakers are now the team to best team in the NBA. Yes, they did lose to the Celtics 4-2 in the NBA Finals, but they did not have Andrew Bynum.
Now Bynum’s healthy and will be joined by another 7 footer on the opposite side of the lane, Pau Gasol. Plus, they have Phil Jackson”The Zen Master” and Kobe Bryant, enough said.
The World Series game has been canceled, so there’s no excuse not to watch the Lakers began their road to the championship tonight on TNT 10:30ET against the Portland Trailblazers in LA. After the season is over, remember who predicted the outcome on day one.
