The Official NBA Regular Season 07-08 Thread
 
Will the *Spurs repeat? Will the Mavericks pick up their broken psyches off the floor? Will the Celtics big 3 put it all together? Will tuq pull a Mark David Chapman on Steve Nash?

Talk about it here!

Why does a new thread have to be created every year? Can't we have just one thread?

Like many other Celtics fans, this is the first time I'm feeling true optimism in about two decades.

This is either a pretty good joke or a pretty weird post. It's hard to tell with you sometimes, I think.

I promise not to murder Steve Nash. I can't promise that TSC won't, though.

You Mavs homers: any concern about the psyche of Dirk specifically? The last three years have all been brutal finishes - the 2005 loss to the Suns was the least of the three, but he still saw the team blow a double-digit fourth quarter lead at home and lose the game and series in OT.

If you guys had gotten KG without giving up too much (JET, picks, etc., basically kept Harris, Jop, and Howard no matter what) I think you'd be a mortal lock for the championship, health permitted. Now I wonder if Dirk isn't heading for Clyde Drexler status, an incredible player who couldn't get it done when it mattered.

I think this is the year we see Shawn Marion sabotage the Suns team while he whines about getting no respect (despite collecting the Suns' biggest check).

I have no idea what to expect from the Mavs. Did they really stand pat? They'll probably do a little worse this year, but not by much.

Hopefully Utah buys out AK47 and he signs with the Warriors. What a disaster that situation is.

This will be Doc Rivers final year as the Celtics coach.

I'm thinking 17 wins for Portland this year.

The Clips are all sorts of sorry. Free Corey Maggette.

That's all for now.

I have no idea how this will play out. I doubt it will go that way. He's just one of those guys that needs to be told how important they are from time to time and that little bit of love keeps him happy. Also, this is almost certainly his last year with the Suns so he'll probably play with something to prove...and for his next contract.

Brag: Grant Hill was working out in the cardio room of my gym on Sunday morning. I didn't recognize him at first until someone pointed him out to me and then it was like LDO. He was sporting a Duke shirt and shorts.

WTF. IP Ban.

Come see me when Dirk's team loses because of an injury to Joe Johnson (2005), injuries to Amare Stoudemire and Raja Bell (2006*), and bizarre, unfair suspensions (guess which year).

* Dallas was clearly a better team even if the Suns had Bell, but probably not if they had Stoudemire also.

I will come see you when Steve's team even makes the finals. And also then loses those finals through an even more ridiculous display of officiating.

Teams PGed to finals:
Steve Nash: 0
Eric Snow: 3

Pretty telling, imo.

You know what they say about defense...
