What are you looking forward to most this season?
Despite Sandy's wrath, the NBA season starts tomorrow.
What are you most looking forward to in the 2012-13 season? Feel free to post a picture of a gif of what you're excited about, makes the thread more entertaining.
Me: Watching Tim Duncan do one of his "old-man" dunks. At 36, I'm suprised he can get up like that, no less dunk on somebody.
Post yours in the comments below.
I am looking forward to seeing the Indiana Pacers duo of Gerald Green and Paul George put on a show. I am now extremely interested to see how Harden goes in Houston, I love his game and hope he becomes the best SG in the L (not this season, but soon)
Really excited to see the return of Jeff Green as well.
Can Kobe match Jordan with 6 rings? How will new OKC look? LeBron. Anthony Davis. Will D Rose come back and how will his explosiveness look?
Also looking forward to seeing my guy Omer Asik get big minutes. He will lead the league in rebounding if he stays out of foul trouble.
The development of guys like Demarcus Cousins, Paul George, Kyrie Irving, Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter, and what Andre Drummond will do.
As a Lithuanian, I'm obviuosly thrilled by two young and very promising bigmens Donatas Motiejunas and Jonas Valanciunas. It's really interesting how they will adapt to the highest level of basketball in the world. They've been playing pretty well so far, I hope they will continue getting better during the season and will be important pieces of their respective teams.
Like probably every NBA fan in the world, I'm looking forward to watching how the Lakers superteam will glue together. Also, I'm eager to watch Lebron and Durant because they keep improving every off-season and their level of skill is just outstanding.
From Rookies, I'm really interested in Harrison Barnes, who could play a very important role to nice looking Wariors squad, Bradley Beal, who looks like seasoned NBA veteran despite being 19 years old and Andre Drummond, because of his incredible physical gifts.
Also, I hope that players like Darius Johnson-Odom, Royce White and Jae Crowder will get their chances to play and will show promise to get more playing time.
I'm most excited to see the rookies Andre Drummond and Harrison Barnes go, with the play of the Kings a close second.
And Rasheed Wallace!
James Harden experiment and seeing how really good he actually is without Durant & Westbrook.
BOSTON VS MIAMI
Well, obviously the post-season is going to be ridiculously good this year with the amount of talent that has been pooled across various teams, but I was thinking more regular season for this post.
Seeing the rookies develop in the league.
I made a $500 bet that Anthony Davis will make an All Star team in 5 years, very interested in the Hornets now...
like seniokas as a lithuania obviously looking forward for Jonas and D-Mo then...
wants to see the best to become better,LeBron - PF/PG? i guess double digits in triple double this year..
Drummond- want to show him he is for real i was shouting he is #2 in this draft and after preseason my confidence has grown..
DeMarcus Cousins- 20/10 season? 300pounde making threes? maybe even trying to lead the league in rebounds, i believe in this guy..
To see how much better Lebron is going to be with less pressure.
My team has been in the lottery for 6 straight years. Can't wait to see if my team is on the cusp of discovering its idenity.
rookies drummond, lillard/ leonard, davis, lamb/ pj3, terrence ross, machado.
teams houston rockets. LA. portland. warriors
players klay thompson, westbrook, demarcus, monroe, rondo, evan turner, kanter/favors, rudy gay, ray allen
yes, im looking forward to this season
