Default Your 2012-2013 General NBA Thread

I haven't been this excited for hoops in a long, long time. I've been waiting for this season to start the minute game 7 ended in Los Angeles last year. With that said, a few stories as we kick off a full NBA season...



Defending Champs: Cue the Star Wars "Evil Empire" music. They've added Ray Allen, which will be a tremendous help to them, the big three are all young, and quite frankly, who in the East is going to stop them? Seriously. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?



That brings us to these a-holes. The re-loaded Lakers. 0-7 in the preseason, but really, who cares? They're going to be good, and the inevitable showdown with the Thunder will be everything it's hyped up to be, I think.



Which brings us to the young up-and-coming team in the association, your Denver Nuggets. I'm all-in on these guys. I am over the moon. The playoff series last year was some of the most fun I've had watching the Nuggets ever. Look, do I think they're a championship team this year? No. I'm thinking more along the lines of second-round exit. But the overall premise is that I think these guys are ridiculously young and on the right track. Masai Ujiri for executive of the year.

Other things to chew on:
-Thunder: What will happen with James Harden? There's no way they don't come to an agreement, right?
-Spurs/Celtics: How much longer can their old guns go for?
-Chicago: So much resting on DRose's ACL...
-New Orleans: How good will the 'Brow be this year? Is he a lock for ROY?
-Lastly, just to keep an old joke going: MAVEN?

El contusion will be fine. Duncan looks younger now than 4 years ago. The rest of the team? Well they're young.

Damnit OKC just traded James Harden. Oh well we had no choice. Better to get something for him.

Wow . That blows. But I get what you mean about how hard it was going to be to keep him.

they can kiss that NBA title good bye until like 2014. they don't have the weapons to take out Miami,LA or SA by giving up Harden. unless Lamb and Jones III turn into studs this season.

Lamb was a beast at UConn.

Totally agree man. He's been way to inconsistent since he got to Chicago. To soft on D and not aggressive enough on O. Not worth nearly what he's getting paid. Wish they would have brought in Amare Stoudemire instead.

Always fun to watch the NBA. My Suns are now void of any real star player and with only a handful of decent role players, I hope they finally suck bad enough to get a top 3 pick or so. Ever since Amare left they've been just good enough to be middle of the road and that never amounts to any pick worth a damn it seems. I already know it's going to be a long and painful season to watch them.


I really only see this coming down to 3 teams.

Heat
Thunder
Lakers

There will be a few other teams in the mix that are really good but just don't have enough.

Bulls
Spurs

yeah and he'll eventually be one in the NBA. but this is a team trying to win a championship now. he likely won't get enough run unless he just wows early one.

the stupid ass hawks ****ed **** up.
we had Joe Johnson for 4 years 60 mil until the Hawks maxed him. we would have had Rose,JJ & Boozer as the top three.

i honestly hope with Rose out that we suck and got a top pick to get a star to pair with him but i doubt the team or Thibs would do such a thing.

Really not a bad deal at all. Thunder get two 1st round picks and some decent talent for the bench.

Thunder may not be in prime position this year, but the future is set up beautifully. Presti has proven he's a BAMF in the draft. Two more 1st round picks will come in handy in time.
