With the upcoming 2010-11 NBA season almost upon us, it's time to gaze into the future and ponder over such important questions as...
Can the Lakers get any better ? (short answer: no)
If the Heat added yet another dominant super star via trade or draft, would the world implode? Yes.
Could the Timberwolves draft even a marginally talented player if their basketball lives depended on it? (short answer: no)
All kidding aside, it's an exciting time for the NBA. With the loaded roster that is the Miami Heat, the addition of actor/rapper/center extraordinaire Shaquille O'Neal to the still worthy Boston Celtics, the staying power of Kobe Bryant, and the otherworldly skill set of Kevin Durant and a stacked Oklahoma City Thunder team, it is time to start getting excited.
With the lineups mostly set and the game schedules upon us, it's time to be forward thinking. How will each team do this year and what will their needs be in the coming year's draft?
Let's look forward, shall we..? Kobe, you look confused. I'm here to help.
