There is one word and one word only to describe the start of this NBA season-unpredictable. Who would have thought that the "Dream Team," more commonly known as the Heat, would have an 8-4 record and be struggling to win games? Who would have guessed the San Antonio Spurs, a team that barely even dabbled in the playoffs last year, would have the best record in the NBA? And finally, what about the New Orleans Hornets who are giving the West Coast Conference a run for their money? Sure, it's still months too early to make any real predictions, but it is safe to predict anything is possible. This is what I love about the NBA-you have the biggest names in sports playing at their best, but sometimes it just isn't enough.
I'm excited to see where this NBA season takes us and I'm even more excited that there is a better (well, better record) team in the West besides the Lakers. This season it really is anyones game and if you don't like that, you don't like NBA basketball.
