NBA Regular Season 2015/16

So here we go...first matches next Tuesday.

Not sure if much has changed from last season when it comes to favorites.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

The Hawks lost to the Pistons by 12 at home.

Chicago takes the 2-point W vs. Cleveland.

Curry set the tone very quickly in a MVP fashion. I think if he stays healthy, he's going to be even more lethal this season. Davis was shocking

I think Cleveland & OKC will regret their respective decisions to budge in for Thompson's & Kanter's agents - dead contracts imho.

No expectations..No disappointments

Two crushing back to back defeats for the Magic. They somehow managed to choke away nice leads in both games with only minutes to go . Insane 4th quarter/overtime shot making, especially by Westbrook/Durant after trailing by 18 :eekani: Magic completely outplayed them throughout the first 3 quarters though. Fantastic game

OKC's defense took a big step backwards. I'm not sure Cheeks & Williams are worthy assistants to help fix anything really...

pretty fun game between the Lakers and the Knicks at the Garden. Possibly Kobe's last game there...well tonight he was pretty pathetic and shooting bricks again. Overall a tight game, with 20 lead changes. But Knicks eventually prevails thanks to Melo hitting well in the last quarter and KP and Lopez both making a double double.

First 10 games of the season have been ALL Curry. If he continues at this pace, the MVP race will be nothing like last year. Tonight he Dropped another 46 pts.

Anyway, from last night

pretty amazing statistic during the Wolves game...of the games where GSW has hold a +15 pts lead, they've won 68-0.

Towns looks pretty promising for Minnesota...he already has plenty of moves and is a solid rebounder and rim protector.

McHale fired. Shocker that one despite a bad start, back to back 50 win seasons and trip to the conference final later.

Minnesota looks like it's gonna be a juggernaut. Wiggins and Towns are amazing and together they look scary ****ing good already.

Knicks somehow wins at OKC despite playing pretty meh...well actually they won purely thanks to their three-point shooting...60% (12-20) vs Thunder's 10% (3-29) including Waiters missing a last-second three which would've tied the game.

The East will be fun this year. A total shift of balance between conferences, it's been a while!

The East is better than before no doubt, but the West is still a monster, just ridiculous depth in terms of competitive teams.

A 'total' shift is probably a bit of an overstatement, but definitely we're in the transition towards it. Only LeBron moving west would stop that imo...
