The 2010-11 NBA Regular Season.

With only two days left until the regular season, there's a lot of questions that will be answered by the end of next June comes around. Will the Lakers 3-peat as NBA Champions? Will LeBron, Wade and Bosh lead the Heat to the promised land? Can Shaq help the Celtics win another NBA Title?

I don't know about you guys but i'm looking forward to this season more than I ever have before. It should be a great one.

If the Celtics win the championship, it won't be because of Shaq.
And yes, I am really looking forward to the season more than I can remember.

Re: The 2010-11 NBA Regular Season.

I'm pretty convinced that everyone working at ESPN would take a shot in the mouth from LeBron James.
Just shameful. ESPN isn't supposed to be like this dammit.

Re: The 2010-11 NBA Regular Season.

I always hated Kobe/Phil Jackson (though I respect them), but I am rooting for a Lakers 3-peat so LeDouche James and his cronies don't get a ring this year. Its going to be a long year for my 76ers, so the only thing I have to root for is the Miami Heat losing in the playoffs.

I refuse to root for the Lakers. If it's Kobe against Lebron in the finals, I may just go stick my head in the toilet.

Re: The 2010-11 NBA Regular Season.

I know there aren't many Timberwolves fans left, but at least we have some young talent to build upon. Of course, management is doing their best to alienate Kevin Love and we'll still lose a boatload of games...but they may be semi-interesting to watch this year.

I think they'll do better than a lot of people expect. It's too bad Webster got hurt.

I think this is the Suns' year. I'm not sure how you can go wrong with a roster of Steve Nash and 10 small forwards.

That Nike ad is pretty cool. The best is the shot at Barkley

That NIKE ad makes Lebron look like a paranoid moron. I used to be the biggest defender of this guy, and now I wonder who is more dumb: Lebron or his handlers.

Meh, that ad is about the only good thing he's done for his image in the past year.

Lebron just needs to shut the fuck up about the 'The Decision' and just play basketball. There is nothing that can turn around his image right now, and as long as keeps bringing it up, it is going to annoy people like me.

Can he thrive as the villain in the NBA? By doing this commercial, talk about how it was racism that fans turned on him, etc, shows me he doesn't like being the villain.

Guys like Bill Lambeer, and Charles Oakley LOVED being the villain, as they thrived on the fans hating them. Reggie Miller loved being the villain when he went to NY in the playoffs and shove it down their throats. Lebron has never experienced this before, and we'll see if he thrives on the road as the badguy.

Re: The 2010-11 NBA Regular Season.

I've heard mostly positive feedback on the commercial, including from people who absolutely hate him right now. It's not like ESPN would stop leading with the Heat if he became a recluse.

Same here. Cannot believe I'm rooting for the Celtics. Heat looked terrible in that first half.

Guy's had some tough breaks in his career. Easy to forget he's still fairly young.
