NBA 2006-2007 Season Preview

Richard BowlerSenior Analyst INovember 5, 2006

For once, the NBA Championship seems to be wide open and ready for the taking. The defending champion Miami Heat return intact and are primed for another run at the title. Many of the usual suspects will be ready to dethrone the Heat. The defending champs from the West, the Dallas Mavericks, are part of a group of contenders that includes the San Antonio Spurs and Phoenix Suns. In a league rife with parity, home court advantage will become even more important. This should be a year full of surprises, and you should expect the unexpected.
