Image by Gotzon on Deviant art
To make the NBA season more interesting… you have to ask yourself what each team or player is going through…
So many questions to ask but so little time to spare… that’s why I’ll list down one question per team…
Can the Hawks win at least 48 games?
If they do, they will own this record: Most consecutive years with increasing number of wins: 6.
What will be their excuse if they lose this year?
Their excuse last year: Garnett was injured.
Can they beat the Dallas Mavericks?
Ever since they joined the league, they’ve defeated every team in the NBA except the Dallas Mavericks.
Who’s the team leader?
Ben Gordon, their leading scorer last year, is now with the Detroit Pistons.
Is Shaquille O’Neal the solution to the problem?
Guarding Dwight Howard was the problem last year.
Can Jason Kidd still play?
He’ll be 37 before the season ends. That’s old in NBA years.
Can they make the Playoffs for the 7th year in a row?
Are fans coming to the games this year?
Detroit led the league in game attendance.
GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS
Will the Warriors win 24 games this year?
If yes, then Don Nelson becomes the ‘coach with the most victories’.
Who’s going to watch the Rockets play without Yao Ming?
Usually, when Yao Ming plays, 1 billion TV sets in China are tuned in to watch him play… but he’s out for the year (injury).
Can the kid play?
Experts are saying that rookie Tyler Hansbrough’s game… is not suited for the NBA.
LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS
Will Blake Griffin save the Clippers?
LOS ANGELES LAKERS
Will Ron Artest be a perfect fit to an already perfect team?
Will Allen Iverson stay retired? I don’t think so.
Who can stop Dwyane Wade?
NBA scoring leader: meaning no one in America could stop him. Olympics scoring leader: meaning no one in the world could stop him.
Is Brandon Jennings going to win Rookie of the Year?
Can Coach Rambis (former Lakers assistant) teach them to play like the Lakers?
NEW JERSEY NETS
Are they going to replace Sacramento Kings in the worst team department?
NEW ORLEANS HORNETS

He did so in the past two years.
NEW YORK KNICKS

They haven’t had one since the new millennium.
Will Kevin Durant get recognition and make it to the All-Star game?
Will they be last again in Free Throw Shooting?
Will they be last again in Three Point Shooting?
Is the number 1 scoring team going to run out of fuel when the playoffs arrive?
When will the real Greg Oden show up?
Greg Oden, the college player, used to be a menace on court…
Can they beat a team from the East?
They played 30 games against Eastern Conference teams… and won only once!
SAN ANTONIO SPURS
Are they going down?
In the past 4 years, their number of ‘games won’ has been decreasing.
Will the streak finally end this season?
They have an on-going streak of making at least one 3-pointer a game for the past 10 years.
They did not do anything to improve their team; will they regret this move when the season ends?
Will they ever be healthy and stay healthy?
They have 3 superstars who don’t seem to play with each other coz 1 is always out with an injury… tough luck.
