At 7:30 p.m. tonight, the 2010-11 NBA Season will officially be underway. Sorry, let me say that again. AT 7:30 P.M. TONIGHT, THE 2010-11 NBA SEASON WILL OFFICIALLY BE UNDERWAY!â†µ
Excited yet? We at SBNation.com believe you should be. There's so much to talk about with the NBA this year. Will the Miami Heat live up to the hype? Can the Los Angeles Lakers three-peat? Can Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder make yet another leap? Do the Boston Celtics have one more run left in them? Who will win an outstanding Rookie of the Year chase between Blake Griffin, DeMarcus Cousins and John Wall? Will this be the lack season before yet another lockout?
All these questions and more were explored in our NBA Preview extravaganza. For the fifth straight season, Jeff Clark of Celtics Blog rounded up the best of the NBA Blogosphere to put together previews for their teams. You can find the whole list of previews here. We also supplemented that coverage with team previews of our own, using the blog previews as a jumping off point. You can check out all of that coverage, plus features from Andrew Sharp, Evan Dunlap and yours truly, here.â†µ
Bottom line: if you're looking for a reason to get pumped for the NBA, we have you covered. And if you're a football fan who is too engaged to get into the NBA until February? Skimming through all that stuff for 30 minutes shouldn't be THAT hard to do.
