cant wait to see my Magic tomorrow, i know it was just preseason but they looked much improved.  Part of it is the players are better and part of it is coaching.  I think the Magic make the playoffs this year.  You dont have Tabias Harris or Mario on your young Magic roster favorite players?

Skiles should instill some defense (which is Oladipo and E. Payton's specialty) AND we got some perimeter shooting in Napier.  If Gordon can stay healthy, this team should jell throughout the year.

Let's go Magic!  Hope they can start off on the right foot tonight.  Will be fun to watch John Wall as well.

I hope Durant can stay healthy !!!   If so, the battles in the Western Conference will be totally crazy this season.

I don't really have a favorite NBA team. But I am looking to watching Milwaukee this year. Hopefully Jabari Parker can stay healthy.

I'm curious how long you've been a Thunder fan.

 

I'm in a sports forum with mostly guys from New York on Facebook.  Some big time basketball fans.  There are guys that have followed Lebron from team to team and are die hard Lebron supporters.  It's probably the one sport where people really root for a player over the team.

 

I'm not saying you do that, I was just curious since OKC is a small market and they have quite a few fans spread out across the states.

Milwaukee and Minnesota are both intriguing.  I'm hoping they can continue to build on their youth poll of talent to keep a competitive balance throughout the NBA
