    It's that time of year again, opening night is tomorrow.



    Should be a good one in Golden State hosting San Antonio. It'll be interesting to see how the Warriors take shape coming in after the off-season moves. It'll also be weird seeing a Spurs team without Duncan on the floor.

    Also on:
    Knicks @ Cavaliers
    Jazz @ Trail Blazers

    Hope my Thunder rebound from the moves and can continue the positive momentum under Donovan.

    Also, this happened last week:



    I've heard he's going to try to make it back this season but I'm not sure if those were just rumors or if they had some truth to them. Really rooting for him.

    Circle the date - Thursday, Nov 3rd. OKC @ Golden State. Westbrook vs. Durant, Round One.

    What Westbrook does this year without Durnat is going to be really interesting to see. I don't think there's much middle ground; he's either going to develop into a legit MVP candidate for a championship contender or post the highest usage rate in league history on a forty win team.

    Sadly, probably the latter.

    Speaking of the Warriors though, their wins over under is set at 66.5 this year.

    He's going to have some monster games, like 45/12/10 type stuff against Golden St. I feel like that's guaranteed to happen.

    I'd take the under. Don't get me wrong; I think they're overwhelming favorites to win it all. I just think there are going to be more growing pains than they expect. And I think they're going to have some issues with interior defense and rim protection.

    Oh, for sure. But if it takes him 40 shots to get there and he turns the ball over seven times to go with that 45/12/10 then they're going to be middle of the pack or worse. He's going to have be efficient and some of their other guys - namely Oladipo and Adams - are going to have to step up their game.

    The scene in Cleveland looks amazing. Defintely a pretty fun atmosphere I'm sure with all the action going on tonight in such a close area.

    It's been a good day as an Indians fan and an NBA fan.

    Funny, but it's one game out of 82. They'll figure things out. But they might as well get used to this sort of noise. Nobody outside of the Bay area wants to see them win this year.

    It only took about 5 hours of NBA basketball before I was reminded that Travis Hines is the worst follow on all of Twitter when the Warriors are on TV.

    I'll actually get to see the Knicks play at the Nuggets in December. I'm not exactly sure that we'll be seeing a great game but my brother is convinced Denver is close to turning the corner and could sneak into the playoffs this year.

    Western Conf is a cluster. A handful of teams that will miss the playoffs could easily compete for a spot in the East.

    Nike/LeBron's new "Come Out of Nowhere" ad is fire.

    +1. This ad is very cool. I'm a HUGE LeBron fan - so I may be a little biased ;)

    Defense is going to be a big problem for Golden State this year. This being based on their personnel.
