OK, I'm James and I'm a basketballaholic. I watch way too much of it. If you look at my DVR right now, you'll see last Saturday's Broncos game (which I can probably delete), the two Arkansas games from the NCAA Tournament that CBS College Sports just re-showed (gotta watch Sonny!) and about 5 summer league games. That's it. So obviously, I need mental help.
Anyway, I was just curious other than the Nugs, what teams do you enjoy watching? Last season, I "adopted" four other teams -- all in the East or Central time zone -- that I would watch pretty regularly. Orlando, Atlanta, Toronto and Memphis. 3 out of 4 ain't bad. So what about this season?
* Orlando - as long as Dwight Howard is there, they're staying in my list. Also, as much as I ripped on Turkoglu, he really picked it up last season. It was a travashamockery that he didn't make the all-star game.
* New Orleans - CP3 baby! If you don't enjoy watching him, you don't love life. Chandler's a badass, West is an all-star. Basically, this is the team that the Nugs tried to be and failed miserably.
* Portland - I welcome our Trail Blazer overlords. Watching them in January during their 12 game winning streak was amazing. Brandon Roy is probably the most underrated player in the league. Add Oden, Rodriguez, Bayless and Koponen (who I wish the Nugs would try to get) and you have a playoff team.
* Philadelphia - Andre Miller is my favorite player in the NBA and it'll be great to see him surrounded with a solid cast. Add Brand to the mix, and it's even better.
I'm also excited to watch a little of Minnesota (Kevin Love!), Toronto (Bosh, O'Neal and Calderon make them scary) and Chicago (who every year suck me in, only to disappoint). I used to love watching the Clippers, but now that my favorite team is Camby free, I'm not going to watch a team that has him. The SOB is out of my life.
