2013-14 NBA Discussion Thread

postby spitefulcheerio » 10/25/13 @ 10:23

Any NBA fans in here? Huge Heat fan here...been through the highs and lows since the 2004-05.

I'm thinking the Heat have a really good chance to threepeat but Bosh is gonna have to step up his game. If LeBron got even better in the offseason and Wade stays healthy, nothing is gonna stop them. And even if they don't win this season I'll consider this tretch a success! 2 titles in 4 yeasr is pretty sick. It'd be really nice to send Wade off with a 4th ring though.

I'm an nba fan, only in the last three seasons though have I really started to get into it. I'm a Lakers and clippers fan, and I'm really excited to see the change in dynamic this season. The clips look to be stronger than the lakes for sure. I'm also really interested in seeing kobes return along with the evolution of the younger teams out there

Tl;Dr I'm an La basketball fan

Predicting big things from the Pacers this year. They pushed the Heat to 7 last year, and they have upgraded pretty substantially in the offseason.

It'll be interesting to see how Oden does down in Miami.

The combo of Oden and LeBron attacking the basket more (and shooting a better free throw %) should be enough to hold them off. The Pacers gave it everything they had and still lost. If Wade had been healthy, that series would've been different.

So many people are overemstimating the Pacers. They're good. Good enough to push a series to 7, but not good enough to win. They played dirty and angry the whole series but all they manged to do was piss of LeBron

Haha! They played dirty? The Heat played dirty. Wade is a very dirty player. (Remember the flying elbow to the skull?)

Pacers problem last year was their bench couldn't score. Big upgrade there this year with Scola and a better backup point guard. Plus granger is back. At least Wade was playing last year. Our allstar was OUT.

Granger is a good player but he's not a difference maker against the Heat. He's a small forward, sometimes a PF.....so he's gonna be played by either LeBron or Bosh and get shut down just like he did the year before.

The pacers bench scored just fine in other games but couldn't against the heat's defense. With upgrades to the defensive and size categories (specifically to compete with the Pacers), I don't see the Pacers winning.

The Pacers bench was horrible all year. Hansbrough. Augustin. Gerald Green. Jesus...

Please don't mention NY sports this year... Unless the giants somehow make the playoffs, then it's gonna be superbowl victory over NE Patriots, within 3 points, coming down to last 2 min decision.

giants are out.
it's too early in hockey and basketball to really determine playoffs, but the knicks and the rangers suck.

and let's not talk about the yankees! hahahaha. they've been in a downward spiral for a couple of seasons.

the mets, jets, islanders? idk about any of them. jets prob have the best chance for playoffs. hahahha

So anyone else following the playoffs? I've been watching here and there, really pissed Rockets got finished off so quickly, I blame the coach, that should've went game 7.

Today's Heats vs Nets was awesome though, I know the heats will take this series. But watching LeBron getting all butt hurt cuz he got stuffed by a white dude was awesome. Best I can hope for is the Nets injure someone important, and screw the heats moving on lol

I hate the rematch. Spurs had it last year too, but they're a bunch of old farts that ran out of steam.

I hope someone Tonya Hardings one of the Heats big 3
