The NBA is back. We are entering the final week of the NFL regular season. And we are on the verge of some BCS football. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. Here are the items that have caught my attention.
Orton’s day in the sun?
-How many of you have ever been fired from a job? I am assuming the vast majority of you have. And for those of you who have been let go from your job, how many of you have wanted the opportunity to extract some revenge? The chance to outdo your former company on a sale. Or something to that degree? Well for Kyle Orton, he will get just that chance come next Sunday. Orton will have the chance to hit his former employer (the Denver Broncos) where it hurts.

Welcome to “Lob City.” Though it seemed highly improbable just a little over a month ago, we are going to have an NBA season after all. Granted we will be off to the races with 66 games per team in the next 123 days (nearly a game every other day). I think most of you remember what the 1999 season was like, resulting in a Cinderella run by the 8th seeded New York Knicks all the way to the NBA finals. But hey, as the great Andy Roddick would say, “If sports were predictable, they would be like watching a DVD.” Just a hunch that this shortened year will be anything but predictable.
-What effect will the infamous “Stern-Veto” have on the overall scope of the League, especially out in LA?
-Will a 66-game season lead to a crazier postseason than we had in 1999?
-Will LeBron finally capture a ring in year two of the “MonStars” experiment?
-Can the Dallas Mavericks repeat despite the loss of their bruiser inside, Tyson Chandler?
-How will the Celtics do in what is likely the last season of the “Three Musketeers?”
-What young star is ready to take the next step? Derrick Rose or Kevin Durant?
-Will SportsCenter have to invent a new top ten strictly for the Los Angeles Clippers? Continue reading

On Sunday night, all NBA fanatics outside of Heat fans had one common rooting interest: Go Mavericks. For me personally, this was definitely the case, and I was riding the bandwagon all the way to the end. Just don’t let the Heat win a championship, that was all I was praying for. Thankfully, I got my prayer, and the Mavericks delivered in a big way Sunday night. Continue reading
