My NBA Preview - One Liners

New, comment

I hope you have taken the time to enjoy the wonderful previews by all the bloggers that participated in the NBA Previews series.  These bloggers eat, sleep, and breathe these teams like we do with the Celtics.  So don't put too much stock into what the "experts" say until you've read the bloggers' view first.

On the other hand, if you really don't have the time for all that and you want just a small bite on each of the teams, here's my list of one liners on each team in the league. 

Atlantic Division
Boston Celtics – 3 stars, one mind, one goal.
New Jersey Nets – Is Kristic hurt yet?
New York Knicks – Ringling Brothers all year.
Philadelphia 76ers – An empty feeling.
Toronto Raptors – Submarine deep.

Central Division
Chicago Bulls – Kobe coming soon.
Cleveland Cavaliers – MJ has no Pippen (or Kukoc even).
Detroit Pistons – How long can they keep it up?
Indiana Pacers – Larry Legend deserves better.
Milwaukee Bucks – Does anyone want to play there?

Southeast Division
Atlanta Hawks – Hey, they've got new uniforms!
Charlotte Bobcats – No Ammo,  no problem. Super sleeper.
Miami Heat – Ricky and Blount are not the answer.
Orlando Magic – Sure they overpaid, might work though.
Washington Wizards – Wizars have no D.

Southwest Division
Dallas Mavericks – How do you recover from that?
Houston Rockets – Best of the rest in the West.
Memphis Grizzlies – No really, Pau loves it here.
New Orleans Hornets – Someone woke up Tyson.
San Antonio Spurs – Boring is beautiful.

Northwest Division
Denver Nuggets – Whole is less than sum of parts.
Minnesota Timberwolves – Déjà vu all over again.
Portland Trail Blazers – Wait till next year.
Seattle SuperSonics – The Kevin Durant show begins.
Utah Jazz – Deron/Boozer not quite Stockton/Malone.

Pacific Division
Golden State Warriors – Was it a fluke?  Probably.
Los Angeles Clippers – Over before it began.
Los Angeles Lakers – See Philly in 06-07.
Phoenix Suns – It's their turn to make the Finals.
Sacramento Kings – Martin is future, present stinks.

Also, don't forget to check out the brand new NBA Section of this blog.  I plan on adding more thoughts and analysis of around the league news to this section.  That including guest bloggers and whatever else we can come up with.
