NBA 2013-14 regular season thread
the season starts tomorrow for the non-hardcore fan. five christmas day matchups with most of them ruined by injuries and disappointing teams. at noon bulls/nets are both injury riddled and suck. then at 2:30pm the thunder tied for the fewest losses in the league despite kendrick perkins and derek fisher still being on their team face off against the injury riddled knicks who suck. at 5pm the heat will play the lakers minus kobe bryant, steve nash, steve blake. 8pm rockets/spurs, but harden is a gametime decision. 10:30 clippers/warriors in what should be a shootout. what looked to be a great day of basketball prior to the season looks kind of meh.
portland tied for the best record in the nba. phoenix is probably just as surprising at 17-10 with jeff hornacek as head coach. atlanta has the 3rd best record in the east at 15-13, i cant imagine theres ever been a worse conference despite indiana and miami being arguably the top 2 favorites to win the title this year. any thoughts on the season so far?
