Alright, since we have such a great, and growing NBA community here and since Dannie and I are both very anxious for the season to get here (as evidenced by his 35,000 word dissertation on what position ‘Dre should play) we are going to do a team-by-team NBA preview similar to the MLB Preview I did back in March. It’s going to start this Friday (with the Phoenix Suns) and we will be doing 3-4 teams a week until opening night, October 28th.
Here how it is going to work. Each preview will have the same format. Dannie will be writing about the teams’ Biggest Strength and Biggest Weakness. I will be writing about Their Thaddeus, which will be the most exciting player on their team 22 or under, and Philly Connection, which is exactly what it sounds like. We will also have a Key Player section that I will be writing for the Western teams, and Dannie for the Eastern teams.
At the bottom of each post, we will each have our predicted finish for the team (division, conference and league-wide) as well as a short paragraph with some final thoughts and analysis. There will also be little things like projected starting-5, last year’s record, etc… Essentially you’ll get everything you need to know. We also encourage that you share your own predictions in the comments’ field.
This page here will serve as a home page where you can navigate easily between teams. We will provide a link here at the start of each post.
