Re: **OFFICIAL** NBA 2008-2009 discussion
is this the year LeBron officially turns on his F-U mode and throws up a triple-double for the season and single handedly romps through the eastern conference ALL SEASON? and to think the kid's only 23 yo. sick.
also, how far do the celts drop this season? ray-ray ain't gettin any younger, and i'm pretty sure he used up all of his fountain of youth water durring the conference finals and nba finals. can paul pierce carry them offensively ALL year again? that's askin alot after that extremely long post season they forced themselves into last year.
and is this the year all the recent rule changes finally catch up with detroit and expose them as clutching defensive hacks? where will they end up in the final standings? 4th? 5th? will their young guns (stuckey, maxiell, afflalo, amir johnson) continue to mature and provide the athleticism they have been lacking durring their unprecedented run to conference finals?
with all that said, how does the east shake out this year?
